Dre, Gabrielle and Daniel

When you walk off Clarence street into the 4 storey neoclassical sandstone office building in Sydney’s CBD, the last thing you expect is to be transported away into another world; into a lushly vegetated space, with cosy oak panelling, comfortable leather seats, bookshelves filled with original volumes and portraits of real people, illuminated by candlelight.

You have the overwhelming sense of being welcomed, and you feel at home. This is the home and the creation of Andres Walters (Dre), Gabrielle Walters and Daniel Noble who combined their extensive experience and their passions to create the perfect bar they always envisioned.
