Home of "democracy in a bottle" and surely one of Sydney's classic small bars is Glebe darling Timbah. Absolutely a wine bar at heart, Timbah offers the fabulous initiative of allowing its customers to choose which of its extensive wine list will be the by the glass options for the evening - 4 whites and 4 reds. You'll have to turn up to find out which ones, or time it right and you will be able to decide yourself. The food offerings are a slick list of small share items, the interior is relaxed and the atmosphere is welcoming.
