The Dock Yard
A pop-up bar in The Rocks with a $6 espresso martini happy hour.
January 20, 2020
A basement bar with 150 whiskies and a fireplace, The Doss House is exactly where you want to be during the winter months. But, its new pop-up openair bar is made for balmy summer nights.
Running until February 9, The Dock Yard has taken over the historic sandstone courtyards surrounding The Doss House. It's open from 4pm Thursday—Sunday serving up Furphy and Guinness on tap, Aussie wines and four classic cocktails: negronis, old fashioneds, Aperol spritzes and espresso martinis. Cheap espresso martinis. If you head along from 4–6pm, Thursday–Sunday, you can grab one for just $6.
To eat, you'll find cheese, charcuterie — including the likes of kangaroo prosciutto and wild boar salami — and ploughman's boards, hefty sandwiches and sourdough with hummus.
The bar is inspired by the many sailors and merchants that frequented The Rocks during the 1800s, so expect nautical theming and knick-knacks scattered throughout, too.
The Dock Yard is open from 4pm–midnight Thursday–Saturday and 4–11pm Sunday.
