Time Out says

Fifteen of Sydney’s favourite small bars are holding a six-week festival from April 7

YCK Laneways is the new city precinct that is home to 15 of the best small bars in Sydney, all clustered around York, Clarence and Kent Streets. To celebrate the inauguration of this exciting entertainment zone, a six-week program of events will take place across the bars and laneways that will bring fun, culture and delicious drinks made with Bombay Sapphire gin and Patrón tequila

Lasting from April 7 to May 22, YCK Laneways Block Party will see more than 75 events happening across ten venues, with the aim of getting Sydneysiders to rediscover the bars of their CBD. From Drag Queen Bingo at the Prince of York to Dungeons and Dragons at Spawn Point; from Nu-Disco at the Barber Shop to Sea Shanties at the Duke of Clarence, YCK Laneways venues and streets will be celebrating good times. Knock off your day in style and go discover events covering everything from tarot and fire dancing to live music, wheelie bin art and DJ sets. Some events are ticketed, but many are free.

Midway through the festival a special live-on-stage event will happen at Barrack Place, with a line-up of DJs, performers, food, drink and more –  check out @ycklaneways on Instagram for further announcements.
