SYDNEY COCKTAIL FESTIVAL 

 

1 WEEKEND. 10 BARS. 20 COCKTAILS. 

 

13-15 November 2020
 

 

To celebrate our beautiful city, in collaboration with Bacardi Martini Australia, we are thrilled to host the inaugural Sydney Cocktail Festival – a three-day harbourside celebration of our city’s great small bars, the incredible cocktails they create, and the talented people who make them.

 

Join us as we come together by the harbour to soak up the sunshine, while drinking cleverly crafted cocktails from bars such as PS40, Mjølner and Grandma's, plus live DJ’s and entertainment. Bacardi will also take over a space at Opera Bar and host drinks tastings and showcase new products with a few surprises thrown in for good measure. 

 

There will be five sessions held across the weekend, each featuring four bars with their star bartenders serving up two cocktails each. Tickets are $49 per person and include entry to the session of your choice, three cocktails or six tasters.


Due to current restrictions relating to COVID-19, tickets are sold by table. Table bookings are a minimum of two, with four, six, and eight also available. This is a seated event.

 

A LIMITED AMOUNT OF TICKETS HAVE BEEN RELEASED FOR TABLES OF 4 FOR SATURDAY AND SUNDAY SESSIONS.

Door Knock

Seasonality and current obsessions are the order of the day at hard-to-find underground bar, Door Knock. Located in the CBD, it's every bartender's home away from home.

Grandma's Bar

A retro-sexual haven of cosmopolitan kitsch and faded granny glamour. There's no place like home. Except Grandma's.

Jacoby’s

Jacoby's is a neighbourhood tiki bar located in Enmore and is designed to reflect the Polynesian decor of the tiki scene in America during the 1930's. The venue is a colourful oasis where you can be transported to an island paradise.

The Roosevelt

Slip back in time to 1950's Kings Cross when dames drank martinis and men boasted loudly about the number of whiskies they had over lunch.

Rosenbaum & Fuller

Rosenbaum & Fuller focus on the best of our wide brown land and support products that celebrate the produce from the vineyard or farm, rather than products that are made by tinkering in the shed.
