This ornately designed bar is in Chippendale — but you'll feel like you're in another world entirely.
Saga is truly a one-of-a-kind experience in Sydney. The cocktail and wine bar is tucked away at the end of Kensington Street, concealed behind opulent, Moroccan-inspired wooden doors. Once inside, you'll find an eclectic mix of influences from the Middle East, India and Southeast Asia. The ornate fit-out is matched by OTT drinks, with an entire list dedicated to what it deems the 'Golden Age of cocktails'. If you come by during happy hour Wednesday through Sunday, all cocktails are just $15, too. Those include the 1920s Knickerbocker (rum, Cointreau, lemon juice and raspberry syrup) and the 1940s El Diablo (tequila, crème de cassis, lime and ginger beer). The succinct food menu pairs nicely, featuring the likes of hummus, tandoori chicken skewers and spicy satay fritters.
