Updated: 22 December 2017

Only moments from Sydney’s Central Business Disctrict (CBD) and accessible by ferry, train or via the Harbour Bridge, is Mosman – an upmarket and affluent neighbourhood on Sydney’s Lower North Shore. With a breadth of stunning residential areas and harbourside viewpoints, restaurants, and retail experiences, this is a picturesque place to spend an afternoon. When the thirst hits, here are the top places in Mosman to grab a drink.

The Buena

The Buena is a slick corner bar in Mosman with craft beers and cocktails. Chic and spacious, The Buena attracts a cool and curated crowd of locals. They sip away on curious concoctions in the Buena Bar, a super sophisticated setting featuring designer furniture, or sometimes they kick back in the light-filled Vista Bar that offers the relaxation of a leafy green and casual courtyard.

The Hunter

The Hunter is a boutique hangout; it is cool and curated, boasting an adventurous drinks menu of wine and cocktails. The African-inspired venue is rather impressive and offers an interior just as vibrant as the crowd it attracts. The food menu is equally exciting with colourful share plates to punctuate the gourmet-designed drinks.

This cafe-bar is one of Mosman’s best-kept little secrets. Sitting under the radar, Stranded Gourmet is a great place to buddy up with a friend.

Whether its beers bar-side, or cocktails in the courtyard, there’s a reason locals are tight-lipped about this place.
