Bar Fly: The Gantry Bar


Amie Barbeler took these week's date somewhere fancy...



Thanks for warning me that this place was fancy,” my date snarks as we enter the bar. “I might have ditched my hoodie and Kmart jeans for a dress if I’d have known we were going to posh it up.” Perfectly framed against the backdrop of Sydney’s harbour is The Gantry: a gorgeous bar/restaurant with pretty cocktails and an even prettier view over Walsh Bay.



We start off with a cocktail off the bar’s Winter menu that’s so new it doesn’t even have a name yet. It’s a decadent and punchy blend of chai-infused vermouth with cognac and chocolate bitters. I’m hereby christening it The Sweet Tooth Vermouth ($18). Foodwise, we settle on The Gantry’s Beef Short Rib Burger ($24) with havarti and a dill pickle, which we enjoy almost as much as we enjoy eavesdropping on the rich lovers who sip Champagne and canoodle on the couch in front of us.
