Sydney’s Home to the Sazerac

Sazerac lover, Peter Fischer, has always been genuinely inspired by famous drinkers such as Ernest Hemmingway and Buddy Bolden. The Swinging Cat is a small bar, sunk below the streets of Sydney’s CBD where we champion the New Orleans culture, beauty and sheer magic from the legendary birth place of the Sazerac, Ramos Gin Fizz, and of course, the Hurricane.

The Swinging Cat’s design elements draw from NOLA’s French Quarter. From the gas lit street lamps, to the velvet lined entryways, you will be transported straight onto the corner of Rue Royal and Conti.

Opening Hours

We are open Monday to Thursday from 4pm – 12am.
Friday from 4pm – 2am.
Saturday from 5pm – 2am.


The Swinging Cat is located on the corner of Clarence and King streets, Sydney CBD, with the entrance being shared with Subway on King street.
