Each year at the Bartender Magazine Australian Bar Awards, an individual is recognised with the award for Outstanding Contribution. But this year is a little different.
Priscilla Leong has been a regular fixture at the pointy end of our Bartender of the Year sponsored by BACARDÍ & De Kuyper for a number of years now, with Top 8 finishes in 2017, 2016 and 2015 under her belt.
When the opening of a new bar makes it into the News pages of Bartender, it’s got to be something pretty special. Back in mid-2011 we showed off Anton Forte and Jason Scott in the midst of renovating their basement site, and now months later we’re back and The Baxter Inn is humming.
It’s a trifle hard to find, and that’s the point, but if you don’t mind walking past bins and down alleys and fire escapes then you’re in for a treat as this gem of a venue. The old unused basement is replete with Romanesque-aqueduct style brick arches, vintage memorabilia and a dark hardwood bar that runs the length of the venue.
