Misbehave at Dulcie's Kings Cross

Experience Kings Cross’ Premier Cabaret Parlour & Drinking Den.  To dabble in all Australian spirits and produce, Dulcie’s should be your first stop in Sydney.

Recently opened, Dulcie’s drinks list is 100% Australian made and each unique Cocktail pays homage to Sydney’s historical legends and flavours. Try the "Carousel Club" - tastes just like a Pavlova (Australia's favourite dessert).
