Henry G’s is a boutique wine bar on The Corso, from Manly-centric hospitality group Saga (Donny’s, In Situ, The Hold). This handsome spot is named after the “Father of Manly” Henry Gilbert Smith, who contributed much of the beachside locale’s character: the rows of Norfolk Island pines, the staggering Steyne hotel and the iconic wharf.

The drinks list zeroes in on European varietals, with plenty of local favourites along for the ride. A menu of pintxos is designed to dance with the wine list “bite for sip”. Think spicy pan con tomate elevated with sage and lemon; tinned seafood with pickles and crusty bread; and burnt Basque cheesecake to finish.

The interiors are plush and moody, with chocolate hues, muted tones and a library wall of antique books that serves as a time capsule for guests. Taking pride of place inside the venue is a generously donated antique piano from 1893, which pianists are booked to play.
