Take life by the horns at one of Wollongong's most vibrant cocktail bars. The name is not just about how you might feel about the night of versus the morning after, the bar sits on the site of The Gong's old Births Deaths and Marriages registry.

Births and Deaths takes no prisoners when it comes to the drinks menu, flaunting a rotating cocktail list and over 100 gins on offer, with an emphasis on local suppliers. The drinks here are top-notch but served without pretension, with bar staff more than happy to help guide you through the juniper landscape.

Conviviality is encouraged (at a socially acceptable distance) — banquette seating runs down each side of the bar and a solid timber table occupies the centre of the floor.

Plus, at the tail end of the week, it's all about big celebrations with Friday Degustations — a rotating menu of four-courses with matching cocktails.
