More about The Grasshopper Bar, Sydney CBD

One of Sydney’s first small bars, The Grasshopper Bar is a favourite among the city’s after-work drinking crowd and the perfect place to kick off a night out on the weekend with its vintage-inspired furniture and old records serving as decorations, making it one of Sydney CBD’s hippest haunts. In the restaurant upstairs you could tuck into some cumin and Sichuan pepper-spiced lamb served with green shallots and pancakes, stir-fried prawns with lotus root and green tea or pumpkin gnocchi with sauteed greens and scallops.

Downstairs the cosy bar offers small snacks, the perfect accompaniment to your cocktail served in a repurposed jam jar. One of the creative concoctions on offer includes the Charlie Chaplin, a mouthwatering mix of sloe gin, apricot brandy and fresh lime, and those with a sweet tooth will love the Dark Choc Old Fashioned with Bulleit bourbon, dark chocolate liquor, Aztec choc bitters, caramel and orange. Situated down Temperance Lane in the CBD, The Grasshopper Bar may be hard to find but it's definitely worth the effort. Spaces are limited though, so make a reservation in advance to avoid

Lovely food, highly recommend the lamb pancakes and mushroom sliders. Also enjoyed the maple coated sweet potato crisps and the prawn toast. Staff were friendly and attentive and Grasshopper has a nice atmosphere and set out.

Took a little bit of finding but was worth the effort! We booked a table early on Saturday evening and had mostly small plates which were very filling. Cocktails were interesting.

Beautiful foos. Lovely atmosphere. Service is polite, friendly & helpful. Decor is amazing, with the music to suit the mood. Could not recommend it more.
