Bar Fly: Zanzibar



Amie Barbeler gets an early start on this year's summer drinking...



Everyone knows that getting drunk during the day is one of the best things about summer, and Zanzibar's recently relaunched rooftop bar provides the ideal setting for daytime drinking. While the 1950s backyard Australia-styled rooftop is the star of the show, Zanzibar is essentially three bars in one. Fun fact: the site was first established in 1832 as "new town store" – from which Newtown actually took its name.



I started my afternoon in the sun with what has become my new favourite drink – the Passionfruit Lynchburg ($18) – Jack Daniels, Tuaca, lemon juice, passionfruit pulp and lemonade. Next up, I tried the vibrant Gimlet Grenade ($18) – Bulldog Gin, pomegranate syrup, plum jam and bitters - it tastes like summer and sherbet in a tall glass. Once the sun goes down and you find yourself craving something a little stronger, head down to level two and grab yourself a whiskey at the 1920's themed Lounge Bar.
