Bar Fly: Kubrick's


This week Amie Barbeler brushed up on her French in East Sydney...



While many small bars are going down the American or speakeasy route, it's refreshing to see one quirky Darlinghurst bar doing things differently. Kubrick's, situated on Stanley Street (get it?) has bright white walls punctuated by funky geometric wall sculptures and angular murals.



Vinyl spins on the turntable and the cocktail menu is intense – offering fifteen types of the Negroni alone.



Not knowing our Lillet Blanc's from our Peychaud's, I decided to go with Kubrick's Signature Negroni ($18) (Tanqueray, Cinzano Rosso, Campari) – an easy intro to the famous Negroni. My date went for a drink so strange we actually doubted its drinkability, but the Midsummer Night ($18) ended up being one of the best cocktails we'd ever tasted, despite being a strange mix of gin, espresso, chocolate and cucumber.



While we sipped our cocktails, we trialed the Charcuterie Board ($28), which featured triple cream Brie and 19-month-old aged prosciutto, worth a glowing review all of their own.
