Who is Mr Tipply?

That’s a question I found myself wondering every time I walked past one of Sydney’s newest watering holes.

After endlessly gazing through the windows of this new two-storey drinking establishment in the CBD, I grabbed a friend (thanks Kirsty) and decided to head inside to find out.

The mystery of who Mr Tipply was, wasn’t easily solved. To uncover his identity we’d have to work our way through the Asian inspired menu, featuring the likes of Tempura rock shrimp with chilli mayo; Kung pao chicken popcorn with Sichuan pepper and snapper fillet with asparagus and spiced chick peas.

As we slowly worked our way through each page, ordering wines and, of course,  Mr Tipply’s favourite, a dirty martini – we quickly forgot we were on a busy CBD corner.

Considering the venue’s size, it’s brimming with personality and almost feels like a quirky small bar with its kitsch theme.

For mains, we ordered the chef’s recommendation – the 500GM T-Bone steak.

It was melt in your mouth delicious, especially when served with their fresh pear, rocket and Parmesan salad. Better still, for $35 which includes the meat and a side, you can easily feed 2 for less than $20 a head.

After eating so much, we decided to skip desert and enjoy some of the mouth watering cocktails instead. My favourite of the night was the Belvedere Sour – Mr Tipply’s take on a traditional whisky sour.

By the time we’d worked our way through the cocktail menu (it’d be rude not to try everything) we got to the back of the menu and finally, I found out who Mr Tipply was.

Mr Tipply, is (sadly) a fictitious character, an intrepid aviator, a Martini-swilling heartbreaker and an elusive gambler hiding out in various exotic places around the world. But when he’s not kicking back in Hugh Hefner's jacuzzi – you’ll find him here – at Mr Tipply’s - 347 Kent St.

What a fun and tiddly way to solve the mystery.

If you want to sample some of Mr Tipply’s fabulous delights – now you know where to find him.
