The Blind Bear
This cosy hole-in-the-wall offers smoky vibes and endless whisky apple cocktails.
Cronulla may not have many cosy, dimly lit bars suited to wintry nights — but it really only needs one.
This cosy hole-in-the-wall is famous for its whisky apple cocktail: fresh-squeezed granny smiths with a shot of single malt. Also behind the bar are locally sourced wines and a generous selection of craft brews. Then there's the hearty food offering, which pairs nicely with the extensive menu of dark spirits — think loaded fries, crispy pork belly burgers and popcorn shrimp.
The Blind Bear has smoky, under-the-table mafia vibes, with red leather booths made from old palettes and hazy lighting. Plus, there's always some variety of mountain folk music playing.
