Bar Fly: Junk Lounge @ Cruise Bar


Seems Amie Barbeler is starting to get a taste for the finer things in life...



My date might have been fluttering her eyelashes at me from across the table, but it was Cruise Bar's gorgeous twilight views of Sydney Harbour that I found myself lusting over. Sprawling across three levels, my date and I spent our evening at the oriental-inspired (and appropriately named) Junk Lounge on Level Two.

Unable to resist an innovative cocktail, I opted for the refreshing and bubbly Shiso Flesh ($21), a clever balance of gin, red shiso, rhubarb bitters, cucumber and carbonated water. My date went for the sweet and sour Aloe Geisha ($18) made from rum, sake, aloe vera, cherry bitters, lemon balm, lime and egg white.




Together we shared what has to be Cruise Bar's best dish: the Hainanese Chicken Rice ($36). You receive a whole poached chicken chopped into chunks, served with fluffy rice, wilted bok choy and a side of chilli paste, accompanied by a French press of clear soup.
