My husband, Robin, is my chaperone for the night, as we tango, to and fro, across the city -- from bars with beach views in Bondi to boho-heavy haunts in Surry Hills. 6.03pm @ the Bucket List Bar Eatery, Bondi Bondi Pavilion, Queen Elizabeth Drive, 9365 4122 A beachside bar overlooking Sydney's most iconic strip of sand and sea seems the obvious place to kick off our crawl. Sharing a $10 bucket of prawns and a Pimm's with the surf a few steps away is about as near to perfection as it gets. Here, the crowd is a mix of young travellers and surfers who sit in clumps around the colourful courtyard sipping sangria or schooners of Kosciuszko Pale Ale. 6.45pm @ Bondi Hardware 39 Hall Street, 9365 7176 It's a merry hop to Bondi Hardware. Named after the previous tenant occupying the Hall Street site, Bondi Hardware honours its old blue-collar bones with exposed brickwork, beams, recycled timbers and a back-wall shrine to tools of the trades. My husband enjoys a schooner of Vale Ale while I sample the wine of the day--a$9glass of crisp, dry Radio Boca Verdejo. As a bar snack, the mini gourmet cheeseburger sliders are a standout. 7.25pm @ El Topo, Bondi Junction The Eastern Hotel, 500 Oxford Street, 8383 5959 "Onward and upward!" trumpets my husband as we hustle up the hill to El Topo, the new slick Mexican joint on the rooftop of the Eastern Hotel. The place is pumping out pop tunes, has buckets of ambience and great service and is a magnet for a mixed crowd of fashionistas and foreigners. We agree to bartender Brett Harris's assertion that a shot of Tapatio tequila is compulsory. "It will knock your socks off," he says. It does. We also scoff down a few tacos . . . all in the name of research, of course. 8.05pm @ Hinky Dinks, Darlinghurst 185 Darlinghurst Road, 8084 6379 Hinky Dinks is like a 1950s time capsule, with black-and-white chequered flooring, vintage red bar stools and cosy booths. It's Wild Wing Wednesday so my wingman orders a few $1 chicken wings, with a glass of Tinja Riesling. Adventurous types should try an El Mexicano -- a chipotle-infused cocktail with sweet vermouth, The best dining in NSW
