Seymour’s Cocktails & Oysters, Brisbane
It’s hard to go past Lefty’s Old Time Music Hall, our Bar of the Year in 2014. But if your destination happens to be Seymour’s – Lefty’s less flamboyant (but certainly not sober) neighbour – stay the course, pull back the crimson curtain and dive right in. This compact, New Orleans-accented sibling sits alongside Lefty’s and shares owners – Jason Scott, Jamie Webb and Simon Shearer. Expect laser-sharp cocktails from the best bartenders in town, cosy booth seating (or classic bentwood stools at a brass-topped bar), plus smart, simple snacks ranging from freshly shucked oysters to duck pithiviers.
IN SHORT Hidden delights in plain sight.>
