- Palm Springs in the 60s. James Bond's Miami. Summer in Sydney. The Ivy Pool Club is either your ideal summer drinking locale or your idea of hell, depending on who you are, how much money you have and how comfortable you are in swimwear. It is, without a doubt, one of the most stylish spots to drink a cocktail and there's no denying it. The centrepiece is the turquoise pool that glitters during the day with private cabanas filled with yellow Thonet chairs and big fat cusions framing it. There are big lounges to recline on or you can take a seat on the little concrete island under a big yellow beach umbrella. Otherwise, prop up the bar and drink some of head bartender Mikey Enright's cocktails – a seasonal list with plenty of poolside fun. There's the Spaside Margarita, pimped up with pear'n'ginger syrup, or go a Mojito Royale - just like a regular Mojito, only topped with sparkling wine. Frisky. Sad that such nice cocktails have to be served in plastic glasses (OH&S, we're afraid) but better that than broken glass and bare feet. Of course, if you want some privacy or simply to dance around in your togs, there's always the Ivy Changeroom downstairs - the club that's as much a shower fantasy (none of the doors locks properly, each can house at least five people and every room has a mirror ball and shower head) as it is a bar.
