Vermuteria is a modern day homage to old-school European wine and aperitivo bars courtesy of Spanton Hospitality, the same team behind the revival of iconic Potts Point cafe Piccolo Bar down the road.
It’s a similar vibe here, but with a much bigger offering. Taking over the former site of Cafe Hernandez, a 24-hour Spanish Cafe that lived at the site for 50 years, Vermuteria honours its predecessor with a focus on all things Spanish – predominately sherry and vermouth. Two house blends of the latter are poured directly from barrels behind the bar, where you can also grab ice-cold Estrella Damm beer on tap.
The site was also once home to a Polish deli until 1970, and fittingly there's a small Euro-style deli out back where you can grab rare sherries and vermouths, pickles, vinegar, bartending books and more.
