Bar Fly – Della Hyde

This opulent underground drinking den will shield you from the heat while also tricking you into thinking you're in a Wes Anderson film. Inspired by the 1920s actress, Della Pringle, Della Hyde pays homage to luxe lobby bars from around the world.

Basement 33

Amidst the hustle and bustle of Goulburn Street’s Haymarket end, is nestled a brand new hidden bar gem, worthy of any nightlife veteran’s attention.

With a rear New York-style laneway entrance and the ceiling covered with cyclone fencing, Darrell Felstead’s re-imagined small bar is stripped back and raw.
