The Wild Rover in Sydney’s Surry Hills is known for being a belter of a whiskey bar. From the Liquid & Larder Group (The Gidley, Bistecca, Grandma’s) this is a neighbourhood bar where ‘Irish folk meets New York Chic – stripped back, laid bare with splashes of extravagance set against a rustic backdrop.’
While whiskey is definitely their specialty (make sure you head upstairs and check out the impressive menu up on the wall) they also smash out cocktails that feature other spirits, so don’t be deterred if whiskey is not your number one tipple. Here we are featuring a thirst quenching hi-ball starring blanco tequila and Aperol. Enjoy!
