Sydney’s Darlinghurst Welcomes New Bar Johnny Fontane’s

Johnny Fontane's bar

“If Vito Corleone, Ella Fitzgerald and Biggie Smalls were to meet for a smoke and a cocktail, this would be the place.” That’s how Thomas Derricott, co-founder of Sydney’s latest terrace bar describes Johnny Fontane’s.

Johnny Fontane’s combines cocktails, cigars and deep-dish pizzas in the heart of Darlinghurst. Named after the fictional godson of mob boss Vito Corleone (The Godfather), the bar pays homage to Johnny’s homeland of Sicily, his famous “Family” and his career as a swing singer.

Guests are welcomed to the sounds of swing and Italian jazz interspersed with slick hip-hop. Discover a Rat Pack and swing-themed bar downstairs, a “gangster lounge” for drinks and food on the first floor, a Sicilian-style courtyard, and a cigar deck with a Cuban feel.

Johnny Fontane’s will be serving up signature cocktails highlighting Italian liquors, as well as twists on classics, including their own Martinis and Negronis. The drinks list also offers wines and craft beers from Italy and the US.

On the food front, Johnny Fontane’s signature dish (and Al Capone’s favourite food) the Chicago Deep Dish, cannot be passed. There are also the Italian staples on offer, including pasta, antipasto, arancini balls and cannoli, as well as gelato for the sweet-toothed.
