Coal & Cedar
Coal & Cedar is a purveyor of fine whisky, cocktails, craft beer & wine.
You’ll need to be in on a few secrets to visit Coal & Cedar. This hidden speakeasy has no signage and no doorbell. Instead, you’ll need to text a special code to a number on the wall and a host will open the door and usher you inside. Rest assured, it’s worth the effort, having just won Best Regional bar in Australia 2016.

The Koutetsu is a small speakeasy bar situated on an otherwise dull section of Hunter street, specialising in more than their fair share of cocktails, spirits, craft beers & premium wines.
