Sydney’s small bar scene expands with Australia’s smallest spritz bar, Belsazar Place.
The small bar trend isn’t something that is going away any time soon, little hidden spots scattered throughout the city just waiting to be discovered. So it was only a matter of time before industry legends, Tim Philips-Johansson and Rob Sloan, came to the table with Australia’s smallest spritz bar, Belsazar Place.
Housed at the foot of their popular CBD establishment, Bulletin Place, this unsuspecting location is influenced by Berlin’s much-loved small bar culture, seating just 30 patrons at a time at the bar and into the laneway.Utilising the highest grade Belsazar vermouth, unique due to its infusion of wormwood and native herbs, the cocktail list boasts big flavours with a focus on quality, not quantity. While the cocktail list is small, there is an even selection of both classic and contemporary Belsazar cocktails including the Rose & Tonic, Garden Bamboo, Negroni, and a seasonally changing Spritz.
With their primary focus being their cocktail offering, Belsazar Place only provides a small bar snack offering. However, they ensure to keep the theme consistent with familiar German flavours present throughout, the eclectic mix of snacks includes; pretzels and onion dip, house-pickled caraway carrots and smoked curry almonds.
Unfortunately, this bar is now closed. They are hoping to find another home for the bar soon and we’ll be the first ones to let you know!
