Highly awarded cocktail bar Maybe Sammy, which was named the 11th best bar in the world this year, will welcome a sister venue to the CBD come February 2021. Sammy Junior will sling cuppas by day and mini cocktails by night — until 6pm, that is.

Opening in the heart of the CBD along King Street, the new espresso bar will take design cues from Maybe Sammy, with its interiors overseen by famed architect George Livissianis (The Dolphin Hotel, Chin Chin Sydney, The Apollo, Cho Cho San),

For its coffee, the cafe will offer a blend that's been specially crafted for the venue by coffee connoisseur and Maybe Sammy Co-Founder Martin Hudak (2017 World Coffee in Good Spirits Champion).

Classic Aussie breakfasts, as well as sandwiches and salads for lunch, will cater to both takeaway and dine-in customers, with around 50 seats for the latter. The food menu has been created by Chef Robert Lechowicz of Cronulla's Blackwood Pantry, so you know you'll be getting some top-notch bites, too.

Then, in the evenings, Sammy Junior will have similar cocktail-den vibes to its sibling. Mini cocktails will be available on tap, with a few wines and beers also on the docket. But, Sammy Junior will shut up shop around 6pm each night, so revellers will need to take a short walk down to Maybe Sammy in The Rocks for kick-ons.

In other news from the hospitality group, Maybe Frank in Surry Hills closed its Bourke Street location for good on Sunday, December 20. But Maybe Frank Randwick is still going strong and a new Surry Hills outpost is on the cards, too, so it's not all bad news.

Sammy Junior will open in February 2021 at 66 King Street, Sydney.
