It's no secret Aussies love a drink (or five). Add to the fact our mild climate and year-round obsession with outdoor activities, and you can see why Australia truly has some of the best bars in the world. And thanks to the ever-evolving small bar scene, every major city in the country now enjoys a range of drinking establishments that range from hole-in-the-wall hideaways to spectacular rooftop terraces. While picking a top ten of anything is always contentious, we've narrowed down what we think are 10 of the most stylish joints in the country. Disagree if you will, or, you can see it as the perfect excuse to get out and start exploring our (very big) backyard. Cheers to that.
