Old Mate’s Place

Gourmet Traveller (Australia) - - Quick Meals - Lvl 4, 199 Clarence St, Syd­ney old­mates.syd­ney

When you hear the words “rooftop bar” in Syd­ney a dark aban­doned li­brary isn’t what usu­ally comes to mind, but that’s Old Mate’s Place, hid­den away on the fourth floor of a CBD of­fice build­ing, and of­fer­ing an open-air ter­race – still an oddly rare thing in Syd­ney. Opened in Au­gust thanks to for­mer Ram­blin’ Ras­cal Daniel No­ble and his mates An­dres Wal­ters (Lobo Plan­ta­tion, Kit­ty­hawk) and Gabrielle Wal­ters (Black by Ezard), the fo­cus, No­ble says, is on “se­ri­ous drink­ing that doesn’t take it­self too se­ri­ously”. Cock­tails in­clude a rum and sherry Pis­tachia with rhubarb and grape, and the easy-drink­ing Corky

Lady Killer No 2 with gin and roasted peach.

What to or­der: A VB throw­down and Old Mate’s ver­sion of a clas­sic Philly cheeses­teak: a hoagie roll packed with jamón.
