Gin & It, Barangaroo

When it comes to bars, Sydney loves a pop up and the latest to open is set to become a hot ticket item this summer.

Gin & It is a pop up bar by Mikey Enright and Petr Dvoracek of The Barber Shop located at the new lifestyle hub, Wulugul at Barangaroo. But don’t expect the same speakeasy entrance. The kiosk style bar occupies a stylish shipping container beside the other eateries at Wulugul.

Gin & It pays homage to the forgotten classic cocktail ‘Gin & It’ which is a variation on a martini made with barrel-aged vermouth and orange bitters. The bar has one of the largest gin collections including the grape-based Gin 1495, recreated in 2014 from a recipe first written over 500 years ago.

The cocktail menu at Gin & It consists of Gin and Mixers ($9-$10) with variations of Bombay Gin, Seasonal Fruit Collection ($17-$18) with fruit focused drinks such as Peach & Beet, and the Botanical Driven Collection ($17-$18) such as the Cardamum, with gin, dry sherry infused with lemon peel, and cardamon honey and citrus.
