The Lobo Plantation Sydney CBD is without a doubt, one of the coolest places to eat, drink and be (very) merry in Sydney. Inspired by Julio Lobo, the last Cuban sugar baron, this stylish and charming bar is all about rum, good vibes and moreish small bites inspired by Cuban, Central and South American cuisines. Tucked away on Clarence Street in the CBD, you’ll find this bar and eatery located in a basement where the cocktails are creative, fresh and mostly rum-based. The rum selection is 250-bottle strong and the menu goes perfectly alongside. If all this sounds up your alley, grab your crew and head to The Lobo Plantation. It’s a cosy and intimate spot though, so reservations are recommended to avoid disappointment.
