About Hinky Dinks

Hinky Dinks is a small bar in the Sydney suburb of Darlinghurst.

With an emphasis on approachable wines and fun drinks, Hinky Dinks embodies the enthusiastic spirit of the 1950s cocktail culture. A culture that knew a cocktail wasn't so much a drink as it was a fashion accessory. And that the Cocktail hour wasn't so much a time, but more a mood - a defiant stance against the demands of the nine-to-five. It's all about the difference between a glass of gin with an olive in it, and a Martini. The difference between a passing glance, and an invitation?

Exciting times ahead!!

Cocktails first. Questions later. The mantra of new Darlinghurst small bar Hinky Dinks sits well with me, especially when the cocktails being created are swell drinks such as Frozen Bourbon Milk Sundaes or Cherry Back Spiders. At this cute 1950s-themed bar, everything is well thought out, almost meticulously so, but full of love, quirkiness and …
