Banchō is a cocktail and whisky focused small bar in Sydney's Chinatown. We’re excited to bring a quality drinking experience to Chinatown. Our cocktails showcase local market produce and the bounty of Asian ingredients around us. Our bar features a large selection of Japanese and Scotch whisky, including rare and independent bottlings. And our bar snacks are designed to go hand in hand with the top shelf drinking to be had here at Banchō.

    Given I had family staying for the holidays I wanted to treat them to this bar. The confirmation from OpenTable meant nothing as the bar was closed leaving me scrambling to find another venue. Very poor management to not inform OpenTable of the closure and not a great way to treat customers.

    Lovely space, if a little "corporate" feeling (the speakeasy vibe could be enhanced by adding some dark curtains to the front windows and doors). We arrived early in the evening to find we were the only ones there and were seated right by the front door. The small bites were great and the creative drinks were accented with hand cut ice. Service was excellent - appropriately attentive and kind.
