The Owl House is a hidden gem. I happened to stumble across it one fateful Saturday night with my cousin. We were both dressed to the nines for a themed party (literally, i was jingling from all my jewellery...which is standard though) and decided to pop into this mysterious terrace at the end of Crown St. in Sydney and low and behold its now one of my go-to favourites.
Owen, the bartender, is one of the most genuinely nice people you will ever meet, who absolutely loves his job and is the best at making the most mouth-watering cocktails I ever did have, while Amir the owner will welcome you with open arms and make sure you are having a great time; I've never been disappointed at The Owl House.
My favourites on the menu are the Oxtail Croquette, Oysters, Wild Boar Charcuterie from the Bar Snacks, the Kadaifi Prawn from the Entrees and the Gnocchi from Main.
If you and/or your friends are just having some drinks then get a cheese board, it does not disappoint!
Take a seat at the bar and laugh the night away like i love to do or if you're feeling a little more of a sit down type thing, then upstairs is your go-to destination in this dimly lit oasis.
