If you're thirsty and looking for a good night out, here's your guide to the best bars in Sydney. Whether you're looking for elegance, good music, or excellent food, you surely won't be disappointed with what Sydney has to offer.

The White Heart: This bar sends everyone to the North, great cocktails and fun d├ęcor gives the pub an English style, especially owing to its food. Their specialties are roast beef with Yorkshire pudding. If you're a Brit missing home, then you can savour the flavour at the White heart. Your taste buds will come alive with their delicious menu.

Duke: This barely-noticeable bistro, located above the Flinders Hotel, has the sort of atmosphere you'll enjoy if you want great eats and drinks. Make sure you check out the larger than life boars head on the wall, and don't forget to try the fried chicken wings, which are quite a bargain.

Eau de Vie: This elegant space is an excellent venue for quiet jazz. It's quiet enough to allow for conversation. Furthermore, the bar tenders have won awards for their cocktails, making this bar quite the favourite with locals and tourists alike. People like the atmosphere, the drinks, and the music. To top it all they serve great food, and it's not too hard on the wallet, either.

Love-Tilly Devine: Named after the brothel madam, this bar is fantastic for drinks and nibbles. Make sure to try the mixed salami plate for affordable grub with a difference. And, of course, try their drinks to wash down your food.

The Commons: Try the house pasta at The Commons, a cosy bar-restaurant with a lovely courtyard. In the basement, they play 50's music on an old-style record player; occasionally, there is live music as well. The food changes daily, so you can try it several nights in a row!

The Victoria Room: If you are looking for some elegance and, perhaps a bit more of the British touch, then look no further than The Victoria Room. Especially, if you want to spend time in a venue where you can actually hear your friend's speaking. The cocktails are also known to be excellent.

Grasshopper: For cocktails that come in jars, and indie-rock music, look no further. Try the steak at this fun establishment. It's succulent and tasty.

The Corner House: This great little place was once a tram stop. It is now one of Bondi's best cocktail bars. It has excellent wood-fired pizza and feels like a lounge.
