There's always been something of an air of mystery surrounding the drink absinthe. Sydney now has its own bar dedicated to the green fairy, but that doesn't make it any less mysterious. You must book a table to drink at Absinthesalon, and upon arrival you'll need to ring the doorbell for entry, giving the place a kind of speakeasy feel. Each table in the salon is fitted with its own water fountain, which forms an integral part of the absinthe drinking ritual. You wouldn't spend a whole night here, but it'd be a great place for a quirky first date.
