It’s become Sydney’s most compelling cocktail: take one part European Bartender of the Year, Matt Whiley (aka The Talented Mr Fox); add a dash of Icebergs’ Maurice Terzini; and perch the whole thing high above Crown Street on the top floor of The Dolphin Hotel.

It’s Scout: a bar within a bar, and it’s now open.

Matt Whiley, one of the world’s most celebrated mixologists, constantly evolves the drinks list for the antipodean version of his award-winning Scout bar London.

Scout has taken up permanent residence on level two (top floor) bar of The Dolphin Hotel in Surry Hills. While the bar is a solo entity, with its own entrance and unique design, Whiley is supported by Maurice Terzini and his team in bringing his unique approach to bars and drinks to Australia.
