Rabbit Hole hops over to Darlo
The revolving doors of new bars and restaurants in Sydney continues with Rabbit Hole Bar and Dining taking over where Johnny Fontane's used to be. Hump day is quiet and calm during their soft opening week before the official grand opening on Friday 6 July. Bartender is friendly and welcoming. Their signature cocktails sound good but not quite ready to be made until Friday so my Plan B Negroni ($19) is a good choice using Australian Twenty Third Street Distillery gin which apparently prices around the $70 a bottle mark. Goes down well, too well, and gone in minutes but achieves a happy place on the upstairs balcony which I think are the best seats in the bar. As part of my toilet reviews here's a warning for the boys, and girls. When the guys toilet door is opened ladies will get a good showcasing of the urinals when walking past — you've been warned. The food menu looks great and promising. Looking forward to trying the snacks and charcoal menu items. Hopefully they'll be opening for lunches in the near future.
