The main appeal of this bar by Michael Chiem (ex-Lobo Plantation) and Thor Bergquist (ex-Bulletin Place) is its in-house sodas.

The bar's taps pour PS Soda's core range – wattle cola; bush tonic; smoked lemonade; and blackstrap ginger – plus a seasonal flavour. There's also beer from Young Henrys and Wayward Brewing. Lo-Fi Wines put together a wine list of around 35 bottles. Its focus is on organic wines from small producers.

The 10-drink cocktail list changes regularly. Think the Batanga, a mix of wattle cola, green coffee bean-infused tequila, lime and smoked salt. The sodas also come with suggested serves, such as a really good Cuba Libre or a Dark and Stormy.

The menu’s focus is on snacks designed to complement the cocktails. There are pickles, terrines, pates, charcuterie and a bahn mi.

The bright, high-ceilinged interior is dominated by bold swathes of black and white. Custom-built stools and tables rest alongside elegant windows facing the bustle of King Street. The soda-making plant sits on a raised platform opposite the long bar.
