Said of Monopole; “A 500-strong wine list by one of Australia’s best sommeliers and a snack menu by one of Australia’s best chefs. Yep, the boys behind The Bentley have gifted Sydney a dark, moody, energetic wine bar like no other. Drop in en route to dinner, or settle in for an all-nighter. It’s the gas.”

Myffy Rigby includes Monopole as one of Sydney’s Top 20 ‘Liquor Lords’:
It’s a wine bar, it’s a restaurant, it’s a meeting place and touchpoint for wine fans and producers alike. Sit up at the bar for folds of pastrami on crispbread, juicy lamb ribs and tiny local scampi served in their shell and let owner-sommelierNick Hildebrandt look after the wine.
Monopole’s Co-Owner & Sommelier Nick Hildebrandt was awarded the ‘Sommelier of the Year’ gong at the Gourmet Traveller Restaurant Awards on August 20, 2014. This is Nick’s third Sommelier Award.
