Top Places to Enjoy a Drink in Sydney

In a city with such a wide variety of bars and restaurants, it can be difficult being a newcomer and not knowing where to start. Below are some of the best places you should visit, and thankfully all of them are situated right in the centre, so you won’t even have to travel far to get to them.

Cocktails

Cocktails

Cocktails

If you’re looking for something a little fancy, with a little pizazz, then try Eau-de-Vie, where amazing mixologists create some fantastic flavours that can only be sampled to be believed. Of course, there’s a list of the usual favourites, but why go somewhere new if you’re not going to try anything new? Take your pick from a quirkily named Connect Four or classic Cosmopolitan.

Absinthe

If you’re feeling adventurous and a little on the wild-side, then take a trip to the Absinthesalon. With a Parisian feel and theme, the bar is a brilliant place to try for a different experience. You can try a range of absinthe, twenty nine varieties in fact, some from Switzerland and some from France. Don’t expect any hallucinations however; this is all legal and if anything, will only get you a little tipsy, especially as it is a maximum of three drinks per person. So you’ll be responsible and have a great time!

Tequila

Carrying on the fun-time theme, try Tio’sCerveceria for great styles of tequila. You can take your pick from over seventy types of tequila, all as fun as the next. You can also choose to have your spirit mixed into cocktails or long drinks, so don’t be put off by the initial taste. The surroundings are amazing and you’ll feel incredibly relaxed in the dull glow of the bar and its unique decorations.

Wine

Love, Tilly Devine, with its dainty name and sweet array of all things grape, is the perfect place for wine lovers to visit. Read the hefty menu by candlelight and choose from Chenin Blanc to Riesling. You can sample some of the more local wines or go international, depending on your tastes. Whatever you choose though is sure to satisfy and you might even want to take a case home with you.

Another brilliant bar for wine is 121 BC. Once again, with soft lighting and candles, the bar is perfect for romantic couples. This place is great for those looking for an Italian wine selection, a little out of the way from Sydney, granted, but still a brilliant place to enjoy some delicious food and a wonderful wine selection.

Beer

If all of the above are just a bit too sophisticated and high-brow for you, then take a trip to The Local Taphouse. This amazing bar is set up like an old-school tavern, with a wide array of beers to choose from. You can try local Australian or spread your wings a little and go for something a bit more exotic. Whatever you choose though, you certainly won’t be disappointed and you might find you’re a bit too overwhelmed by choice.

Secret Attractions of Cyprus

If there’s one place to see before you die, it’s certainly the island of Cyprus. Not only does this spectacular holidaying destination offer so much more than your usual tourist getaway, but situated in the heart of the Mediterranean, the food is sublime and the climate is to die for. Millions of people holiday in Cyprus every year, and with an increase in British people looking to snap up property on the island, the country’s infrastructure has never been better.

From the vibrant town of Agia Napa to the sleepy villages of the south, there’s so much to see and do here that you won’t know where to start. Let’s take a look at some of the secret attractions of Cyprus on offer this summer.

Head For The Hills

One of the latest trends to spring up in Cyprus is agritourism, and this is where people choose to holiday in the mountains away from the big resorts on the beaches. If you’re looking for a quite break this summer, miles away from the nearest sound system or beach party, then there are plenty of things to do and places to stay in the Troodos Mountains.

As you lay back beneath the pine trees and cedars, the only sound you’ll hear is the chirping of the birds and the breeze in your hair. If you want to stretch your legs however, there are a variety of activities to try out, including cycling, sightseeing and even mountain climbing. Furthermore, don’t think you’ll have to pay more for this tranquillity – in some cases, it’s cheaper than staying in the all-inclusive resorts.

Experience A Beach Party

Cyprus Beaches

Cyprus Beaches

Cyprus, and more specifically Agia Napa, is known for its tourist party culture, and it’s completely understandable if you’ve been there, done it and got the t-shirt. Because the beaches in Cyprus are so stunning, many of the pre-parties to the night’s main event are held on the shoreline, and they’re rarely as crowded as the main event either. From fire breathers and circus acts to live music and traditional dancing, you don’t have to mix in with the big bars and nightclubs to have a great time at a beach party.

Archaeological Wonders

Cyprus is a country full of ancient history, and one of the most exciting ways to experience this history first hand is to take a sight-seeing tour of the island. Ancient Kourin is known all over the Mediterranean as a cultural and archaeological hotspot in Cyprus, home to one of Europe’s only Greco-Roman amphitheatre. Although it has had various renovations since being discovered in 1962, it still stands tall on the cliff tops, and lays bare the wonderful and intricate floor mosaics inside.

Wine Tasting 

Some of the best wine in the Mediterranean originates from Cyprus, and the island has entire landscapes of vineries to experience. All across the Troodos Mountain are boutique wineries, where tourists can taste some of the island’s finest grapes, and even learn to bottle their own wine!
