The Lobo Plantation

With its bright green wallpaper and colonial white accents, The Lobo Plantation is a compact version of a 1930s tropical supper club, with the bar as the central focus (rather than a stage). The crowd here is younger and wilder than at the other spots on this list, and the energy is geared more toward the party atmosphere than meticulous cocktail craftsmanship. The house special is the Toasted Almond Mai Tai, which comes garnished with a blowtorched marshmallow; it’s best to put on your finest flowered shirt and go with the flow.  Basement Lot 1, 209 Clarence St.; thelobo.com.au.
