She Loves You

Gourmet Traveller (Australia) - - Quick Meals - 530 King St, New­town

Some­times you want a bar that’s more about your con­ver­sa­tion than the man­age­ment’s Spo­tify choices. A place where, rather than leav­ing you to floun­der through 300 bot­tles of vary­ing qual­ity and 50 cock­tails, the bar­tender lis­tens to what you want and pulls out just the right thing from a list that’s as con­cise as it is smart. While co-owner So­phie Ot­ton is one of the best som­me­liers in the state, noth­ing about this, her first bar, screams “cork dork”. In­stead, She Loves You is the sort of place to curl up with a copy of The New Yorker from the shelf, or revel in the com­pany of good friends. You won’t be short of good things to drink.

What to or­der: There’s not a bad wine on the list, and star US bar­tender Eben Free­man con­sults on the cock­tails.
