Manly’s Spanish-style speakeasyManly, NSW

The Cumberland in Manly is quintessential Australia boutique deli by day, top-secret underground speakeasy by night. There’s a lot to love about this Manly bar that is accessible through a vintage 1920s fridge door and down a spiral staircase. The 75-seater bar radiates old-world sophistication with a leather banquette, hard-carved sandstone blocks and antique brass beer taps.

The carefully curated cocktail list features drinks inspired by native Manly botanicals (the Dandelion Espresso and Lilly Pilly Sour are just two examples), but it's the remarkable 250-strong whiskey collection that will force more than a few return visits. Platters of cheese and charcuterie from the deli upstairs quell any need to emerge into the world for dinner.
