SYDNEY | The Baxter Inn has been one of Sydney’s most awarded bars for several years now, and to anyone who has visited it’s easy to see why. The basement speakeasy from Anton Forte and Jason Scott (Shady Pines Saloon, Frankie’s Pizza By The Slice) ticks all of the boxes that make a small bar great. It’s hidden in a basement, has a real focus and purpose, a great atmosphere and super knowledgeable staff. Walk through the loading dock at the back of an alley off Clarence street, and down the stairs into Baxter Inn and you’re instantly transported into a space that wouldn’t feel out of place in prohibition era New York City. The staff are smartly dressed, the lighting low and the music swinging, but not so loud as to preclude conversation.

When you make your way to the bar you’re greeted with a huge back-lit whiskey cabinet featuring no less that 300 bottles of whiskey from around the world. There’s your popular Scottish, Japanese and American whiskeys here, along with local drops and bottles from places like South Africa, India and Taiwan. Whether it’s an old favourite or something new, you’re likely to find what you want here. Staff really know their stuff and even when it’s busy (which it almost always is), they’ll take the time to describe any of the whiskeys you want to know more about, and are happy to help you find the right whiskey for you.

Cocktails are also fantastic here, and if whiskey isn’t your thing, there are a range of other top quality spirits, and some beers and wines to keep you going.

The Baxter Inn is still as popular as ever, but the no bookings, no functions, no door list policy means that as long as you’re willing to wait in line (or get there early) you’ll always be able to visit.

The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
