Pocket rocket Sydney has a thriving small bar scene these days, but Pocket in Darlinghurst was one of the first players in the game. Several years on, this boozy inner-city is a great place to drink and dine... the interior is dark and close, and punters are invited to sit in deep comfy armchairs or perch on old church pews. These guys serve a mean cocktail so you’d be silly not to try one while you’re here - the ‘ugly duckling’ with muddled basil, lemon and ginger topped with sipsmith gin and a splash of sugar is a crowd pleaser. The menu is equally attractive and you’ll find all manner of eclectic bar snacks and a few select mains. We love the baked brie and prosciutto followed by the chipotle pulled pork with mango salsa and grilled flatbread. This place always fills up fast to make sure you book ahead! Best dish: crispy mac n cheese balls.
