Top 10 Wine Bars in Sydney

Sydney’s best Wine Bars

Lovers of our beloved grape juice will want to take note of our top spots to enjoy a tipple or three.  With sommeliers this experienced, wine knowledge is optional.  Do not be afraid to ask about the wine and to explain your specific preferences (in fact these sommeliers encourage it)!  You might just learn a thing or two about your own tastes along the way, or discover a new drop you’ve never heard of.  Win, win!

So, check out our list of the Top 10 Wine Bars in Sydney (in no particular order).

  1. MONOPOLE
    This glam industrial chic wine bar is one of our favourites.  Offering over 500 rare and boutique wines alongside spectacular share style food, it’s a winner.

  2. LOVE TILLY DEVINE
    Named after a notorious crime figure and madam, these days this establishment serves up top notch food and wine.  An eclectic space focussing predominantly on Australian and often little known wines who embrace the minimal interventionist movement.

    91 Crown Lane, Darlinghurst
  3. WYNO BAR & WINE SHOP
    Wyno Bar & Wine Shop has taken over the old 121BC site (may it rest in peace) and it is brought to us by the Porteno folk.  Wine is of course a focus but there’s some stellar bar snacks on offer too.

    5/29 Orwell Street, Potts Point
  6. WHERE’S NICK
    Ok, so you might not come here for the food.  That’s ok.  Because wine is what they do well.  Not to say the food isn’t good, just that it’s a bit of an afterthought, because they are all about the wine.  Maybe not your dinner venue, but your pre-dinner drink venue.
