Before the rise of the small bar, cocktail bars were the only place to be rewarded when one had a thirst for both tasty and trendy. The Different Drummer was an oasis in a desert of old-man pubs and soulless bars. The Different Drummer in Glebe has a special place in the heart of the inner west.
Since ages past the Drummer has been serving scintillating cocktails with a happy-go-lucky list of patrons who don't hesitate to share their thoughts on why the Agwacello (agwa coco leaf liquor, limoncello & cloudy apple) is the best cocktail on the menu. Settle in downstairs amongst the bordello-like luxury for your birthday or girls-night, or take a date up to the roof for a breeze and a good view. The bar is well positioned on Glebe Point Road's restaurant strip to cater for both pre- and post-meal drinks. This is fortunate as their drinks far outshine their food. The menu is a touch pricey and seldom Spanish, but don't be put off by the food, a daily 2-for-1 happy hour from 6 till 7.30 is more than enough to get you through the door.
