Over the past few months, our team have sipped our way through the best bars in the city. We’ve gone down alleyways, up stairs and into basements to find the drinks that make you stop in your tracks and say “fuck, that’s delicious”; the welcomes that make you want to become a regular; and the venues that make you think you should quit your day job and open a bar. That’s how we create the Time Out Sydney Bars Awards, which represents the best of best across the 11 categories. Meet your champions for 2019.
