Bar Swift Pop-Up

One of London's best cocktail bars is popping up in Sydney for one night.

Since launching in 2016, London's Bar Swift has been named the best new international cocktail bar and one of the world's best 50 bars, and seen one of its bartenders pick up a coveted award as well. Now the boozy British spot is bringing its drinks to Sydney for a one-night pop-up focused on its favourite tipples.

If the sound of a sgroppino — a mix of prosecco and lemon sorbet — gets your tastebuds tingling, then you're in luck. If you fancy a Higher Ground, which blends Mr Black, Mr Black Amaro, orange bitters and coconut, then you're sorted, too. They're just two of the bespoke cocktails on the menu, with Bar Swift's Bobby Hiddleston and Hamish Dowie making the trip to get mixing and chatting.

Head to Charlie Parker's from 5pm on Wednesday, February 13 for the tasty libations, which'll showcase Mr Black's cold brew coffee liquor in a big way — and be paired with the venue's oysters, potato croquettes with smoked burrata and salsa brava, and pork and veal meatballs.

Entry is free, but expect cocktails to set you back between $20–25 per beverage. And expect a crowd, with entry and drinks on a first-come, first-served basis.
