Little Felix Bar opens in Sydney
A Parisian style small bar is the latest opening from Justin Hemmes group Merivale.
“We have taken the well-known classic cocktails from the great Parisian bars and hotels of the early 20th century, and gently refreshed them to make drinks relevant today,” says group bars manager Sam Egerton told Good Food.
“Embracing provenance as a guide for these developments, we used French liquors as modifiers to the tried and tested recipes.”
The bar takes design and cocktail cues from 1920s and 1930s Paris.
“Traditionally when you get a restaurant in Paris and it’s been around for five-plus years and it’s reached a point where it’s trading well, busy lunch and dinner and starting to run out of space, they will try and find a location nearby where they can do a spot that acts as a complementary element to their existing venue, Egerton told TheShout
“Somewhere people can go for a drink afterwards, or before, somewhere when they’re finishing up from lunch or dinner and they want to keep going. So that’s kind of where the relationship is, but in terms of design and look and feel Little Felix is distinctly different.
“Felix has a lot of white tile, gold and some reds, by comparison Little Felix has a beautiful dark green running through it. It has a comfortable, engaging and inviting feel to it.”
Little Felix Bar:
Tucked alongside Felix Restaurant in Ash Street, you’ll find Little Felix – a French-style cocktail bar with a moody interior and bartenders who know exactly how you like your drink.
Drink champagne and wine poured from magnum bottles, and cocktails inspired by early 20th century Parisian hotels – such as the ‘Paris Meridian’ and the ‘Raconteur’ – as you catch up over cheese, charcuterieand truffle tartines.
Polished without being fussy, Little Felix lends itself to pre-and-post theatre drinks, a date with someone special, and all-round good times.
