You might think that you know the ins and outs of this city, from breakfast spots in the CBD to swanky rooftop restos and hot venues for ladies’ night. But have you heard of a bar without a menu or a hidden watering hole in a museum? To help you make the most of your nights out, we searched high and low and uncovered these cool hidden bars that are slightly off the beaten path.
You’ll find this medieval pharmacy-themed bolthole on the third floor of British-style gastropub Oxwell & Co, with a hidden door that leads to a private dining room. A secret spot for just 12 lucky souls, the interior is all lush emerald green and dark wood, with moody vintage odds and ends collected from all around the world; the shelves are lined with antique-style bottles containing house-made concoctions that promise to ‘treat all that ails you’.

Let the drinks (and gin puns) BeGin. Hidden above English pub The Penny Black on Boat Quay, this gin-obsessed lounge might be easy to miss at first glance – a testament to a good speakeasy.
