  • Backs out to the Baxter laneway but entrance on York St right next to Ipoh.
  • Holy moly! For the first time since I moved to Australia in 15 years, a bartender finally bought me a drink.
  • Nice extensive gin menu. Cool interior & nyc type entrance. Good service.
  • Cool bar to get a quick drink.
  • Its literally in a barber shop. The barber shop is closed but look carefully and you will notice that the doors are unlock.
  • Same alley of The Baxter Inn, different vibe. Here, gin is the main character and cocktails dont disappoint.
  • Awesome little bar, good atmosphere and nice selection of gin cocktails!
  • If you like Smokey flavours, give the Smoked Rosemary and Gin cocktail a go.
  • Directions: Enter on York to go in the front. Go up stairs through the silver door at the top. Quite easy actually. Back door is in the alley by Baxter Inn.
  • You go through the barber's to go upto the bar delicious cocktails
  • White negroni is delicious! On Fridays they play old school hip hop.
  • Awesome creative gin cocktails, loved it!
  • Great drinks, but the vegan hipster bartenders were snobby.
  • Great small bar. Always missed this one in favour of Baxters - now glad Iv got another alternative.
  • Excellent gins, try Botanic Australis and Death's Door. But you have to find the place first!
  • How bars should be: loud, fun, solid and close to other bars: Baxter Inn after, please.
  • Overall good experience. Waitresses have a great attitude, but a couple of guys behind the bar not so much. Quite understaffed (or overpacked) on a Friday night so be prepared to wait for orders!
  • Legendary bar staff. Midweek patrons are an interesting bunch, well worth visiting then. They don't do Brazilian waxes either after midnight or at all, I didn't press the question.
  • Gin-focused speakeasy. Classic cocktails beautifully prepared
  • Gin cocktails!
