Gorgeous George

Run by the team behind the similarly cheeky-but-not-serious bar The Long Goodbye (and by ourselves, for reference) Gorgeous George is a far cry from its speakeasy-style sister. Flynn McLennan says the bar, like them (and like George), is "not very serious". Instead, it's "a little bit flamboyant, a little cheeky and a bit fancy". The space, formerly home to Mister Pocket, is certainly fancy, decked out with gold, burgundy and lush leather banquettes, and with antique bottles lining the exposed brick walls. It's a bit cheeky, too — you'll find a drawing poking fun at the US president on the back wall. The flamboyant third of the equation is reflected in the drinks. As well as the aforementioned gold-flecked Tiger Mask (made with green tea gin, champagne and yuzu), there's a red velvet twist on a rob roy with cacao vermouth, beetroot and peated scotch; a hot poached pear drink made with glühwein reduction and Armagnac; and the Fight Milk, which blends smoked porter, vanilla-bean infused rum and brandy custard. We have rare Japanese whisky, a $30 Wagyu Katsu Sando and gold-flecked cocktails. Gorgeous George, the platinum-haired, flamboyant 1950s wrestler, would approve. This bar is perfect for cocktail parties, Hen's night, Bucks night, engagement, anniversaries and birthday parties. Gorgeous George is now open at 13 Burton Street, Darlinghurst. It's open from Sunday–Wednesday 4 pm-midnight and Thursday–Saturday 4 pm–1 am.
