This gin bar has an impressive cocktail list and offers one of the biggest botanical gin collections in Sydney.
Inside the sandstone walls of a two-story heritage building on George St, you’ll find one of Sydney’s largest collections of gins and a team of mixologists who know their way around a cocktail. This is Frank Mac’s, a cocktail and gin bar from the hospo geniuses behind subterranean whiskey bar, The Doss House.
Behind Frank Mac’s 5-metre long bar, there’s over 80 juniper blends sourced from all over Australia and the world.
A cosy 120-seat dining and drinking space flows from a hidden courtyard out to alfresco seating on George Street, furnished with charming vintage lounges and a fireplace that crackles away during winter. Just like they did in the Doss House, owners Ciara and Eoin have bought out the character of this heritage space.
Alongside gins and cocktails, there's a selection of delicious bites and both old and new world wines to wash them down. Highlights of the stacked drinks menu include a mac martini, made with dry gin and an infusion of lemon myrtle, kaffir lime and bay leaves, and a Brandy Alexander made with chilli and coco-pop infused brandy, milk and smoked cream.
With its endless gin list, crafted cocktails and heritage charm, you’d be hard pressed to find a better place for a cheeky tipple than Frank Mac’s.
