My love for laneway bars instigated after the City of Sydney Council drew up plans for a temporary venue called 7 Metre Bar. Since then, I’ve found several bars hidden in nooks and crannies all around the city. A particular favorite is Grasshopper, an up-and-coming bar tucked away in Temperance Lane, just off George Street. The staff is friendly, the atmosphere chilled, and you can order any drink, just as long as it’s served in a jar. It’s cool and funky, with retro ’70s armchairs scattered around the room.
