Past lives of 77 George St have included a boot maker, boarding house, and opium dealer, and now it is all about whisky.
Based in a heritage underground venue in the heart of The Rocks is the old-world whisky bar, The Doss House.
The Doss House carries an extensive collection of over 150 whiskies, as well as gins, vodka and fine wines. Rare whiskies on offer include 30-year-old Hibiki and Glenglassaugh, as well Nikka 'Taketsuru' Fortune 80 and a GlenDronach bottle from 1994. Guinness is on draught along with a couple of Australian taps.
If you’re peckish you can order meats and cheeses, dished out of an exquisite charcuterie counter. A local favourite is the Aussie platter inclusive of smoked wallaby, Bay of Fires cheddar, local honey and the wild boar salami.
The original sandstone walls bring warmth to this unique bar which boast five distinct spaces which pay homage to past tenants. With the stylish vintage surrounds including renewed fireplaces, antique mirrors and chesterfield sofas it’s easy to feel transported back to another time.
