The Bucket List
This is about as close as it gets to a bar on the beach in Sydney
. Unfortunately, the ground is not sand, but there are umbrellas and lights and open-air views of the ocean. Inside, the place feels like a thumping Mexican cantina, especially when a tan waiter walks by with buckets of Corona and Pacifico. Look for the daily happy hour specials, which range from $10 mussels to $15 pitchers ("jugs") of sangria. Otherwise, consider a "Paid to Surf" or "Life's Peachy" cocktail, if not the frosé—frozen rosé, a summer trend here since at least 2016. The place is always busy, especially during live music or surf film nights, but that's what we get at a place called the Bucket List.
