Co-owners Jason Crawley and Dylan Howarth are two of Sydney’s best-known bartenders. Crawley has bartended everywhere from Hong Kong to London, Southeast Asia & the Americas and is locally best known for manning the bar at Merivale’s Hemmesphere and The Grand Pacific Blue Room. Howarth meanwhile, has racked up plenty of industry plaudits, including the prestigious Outstanding Contribution award at the 2018 Bartender Magazine Bar Awards.
It’s little wonder that their drinks list – a 300 bottle collection of tequila, mezcal gin and whisky – is so confident.
The cocktail offering is split into two categories. “The Fortunate Ones” which includes time-tested classics such as the Mint Julep and the Old Pal - a Negroni that subs gin for rye and dry vermouth for sweet vermouth, and “Fortunate Sons”, the cocktails with a twist including The Insomnia an Espresso Martini of sorts, made with cold drip and blanco tequila.
