The Roosevelt Bar & Diner

Review of The Roosevelt Bar & Diner


It’s no secret,  one of our favourite Sydney cocktail bars is Eau de Vie, but did you know they have a sibling in The Roosevelt Bar & Diner?

Unlike Eau de Vie, The Roosevelt’s cocktail nirvana is not hidden behind dark glass doors in a little known hotel foyer.  The Roosevelt, in all its glory, has full street access.  Enter this establishment and you will be transformed smack bang back to the glamorous 1940’s.  It’s a Mad Men vibe, and it’s our kind of place.

The cocktail menu reads like a novel and we giggle as we read through the descriptions of the various concoctions.  Worth taking note of are their famous ‘cocktails on wheels’.  Showmanship and theatrics are an important part of The Roosevelt experience.

But, don’t be fooled into thinking The Roosevelt is just another classy drinking establishment.  They are serving up an Americana diner tapas menu, to complement their liquids.

Everyone loves a bar with history, and this story is right up our alley.  Did you know, a nightclub of the same name existed in the same location in the 1940’s?  And, that Frank Sinatra actually performed there?  Well, you do now.

Also worth noting – they have an uber cool private dining room.
