Sticky Bar: Table for 20, Surry Hills (27 June 2009)

Level 2, 182 Campbell Street, Surry Hills NSW 2010

Hidden little bar gem

Sticky Bar is one of the most hidden bars I know of in Sydney along with the intimate Madame Fling Flong. If you didn't know where, when and how to get inside then you'll probably never come across it. Entry is via a narrow lane in the backstreets of Surry Hills and reminds me of those Melbourne bars you find in those very dodgy and dirty looking lanes. It's located above the popular Table for 20 (which actually sits about 40 with two communal tables) and has nice comfy couches, dim lighting and a selection of quality International wines — here's a review by TimeOut Sydney. Tonight the Italian Prosecco goes down nicely and I noticed a few tempting bar food options available on the menu board for possibly next time. I've dined downstairs once before at Table for 20 which serves platters of yummy Italian dishes and suits sharing with a group of friends for a fun night out.

Have you dined at an Underground Restaurant before?

Love it I used to work there years ago when it was called Savage... Restaurant downstairs record store and cocktail bar upstairs.. Glad someone is using the space it was vacant for years.. Still looks very familiar
