Big Poppa’s, Syd­ney

Gourmet Traveller (Australia) - - Restaurant Awards -

In a move that gen­tly thumbed nose at Syd­ney’s new-found rep­u­ta­tion for be­ing the city that ever sleeps, Big Poppa’s snagged a li­cence with a grand­fa­ther clause that al­lows it to trade much later than its com­rades. But even if the party were be­ing put to bed be­fore the witch­ing hour, it’d still be one of the most ex­cit­ing bars to have opened in Syd­ney in many a year. Co-owner Lewis Jaf­frey and man­ager Bobby Carey both clocked plenty of time in the Shady Pines/Bax­ter Inn axis of awe­some, and though its mu­sic and flavour are its own Poppa’s is true to those bars’ good-time spirit. Throw in ex­pert bar­tenders, an ex­ten­sive cheese list and a rol­lick­ing hip-hop playlist that re­sounds across both lev­els of the two-tiered venue, and you’ve got a very at­trac­tive propo­si­tion on your hands.

IN SHORT Big drinks, big tunes, big cheese se­lec­tion.
