Emmilou Tapas Bar & Restaurant – Surry Hills, Sydney

A Taste of the Best

Since opening in 2007, Emmilou has earned a reputation for exceptional tapas and cocktails, wonderful music and a distinctly European atmosphere.

Bar Lou Lou, cleverly hidden at the back of Emmilou opened in July of 2013 and is a secret den decadently adorned for the discerning drinker and is our hidden paradise.

With a passion forged by five years in some of Spain’s leading kitchens, owner Chris Cranswick-Smith has crafted an authentic menu of modern Spanish tapas that combine international expertise with fresh, local produce.

The same assurance is reflected in one of Sydney’s most seductive cocktails lists, where contemporary mixed drinks take their place next to time-honoured classics.

It’s this sophisticated balance of influences that defines Emmilou and sets it apart as a truly unique cocktail bar and restaurant. Stop by for a couple of relaxed drinks or settle in for the perfect culinary experience. And because a memorable evening should never be rushed, dining is available until the civilized hour of midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.
