Bluebottle Bar & Kitchen
Bluebottle Bar & Kitchen is a neighbourhood bar made for Manly locals to enjoy inventive cocktails, live music and good tucker.
Aptly named Bluebottle with its harbour-side location, the bar is ambient with blue lighting and blue seating. Dressed with funky cushions and pot plants, the bar is quite the hangout. There is plenty of relaxed couch seating, bar seating and general dining tables – the ideal balance between a bar and a relaxed restaurant. Live music sets the atmosphere most evenings.
The cocktail menu is quite a large one, listing all the favourite classics along with some bluebottle specialties. Try out the Tiki Tiki cocktail, served in a fun tiki glass and topped with fruit – it’s quite the beverage.
For something a little more classic sip on one of their espresso martinis. Made in three different ways at Bluebottle, the cocktail is made with Marvell St espresso, Kahlua and your choice of vodka, tequila or Sailor Jerry.
There’s also seven beers on tap, plenty of wine and other spirits available to order. The food menu has a small selection of bar nibbles available, ideal for snacking with a beverage in hand. Choose from sliders, meatballs, chicken wings, dips or a cheese plate.
Need to know – Nearby parking is available.
Nice to know – Bluebottle has plans to extend the food menu. The venue is available for event hire.
