Review of The Swinging Cat


The small bar phenomenon is alive and well in Sydney with the opening of New Orleans themed underground bar, The Swinging Cat.

Appropriately unsigned you’ll need to look for the entrance to Subway and head down a flight of stairs to find this jazzy gem.  Once you’ve arrived you’ll find an inviting spot with plenty of comfy seating and good old fashioned hospitality in the form of table service.  Who doesn’t love that?

Cocktails are the name of the game here with a New Orleans twist of course.  Expect to see Southern classics on the menu such as a Hurricane or a Ramos Gin Fizz.  Or maybe a craft beer or a glass of wine is more to your liking.  We don’t discriminate and neither do they.

In terms of the food they’re keeping it simple for now, but we hear their Grilled Wagyu and Cheese sandwich is fast making a name for itself.
