Slinging back boozy bevs is more often than not the key to Sydneysiders' hearts, but in a city where a cocktail can set you back $26, getting blitzed in the name of love can be a luxury reserved only for the biggest ballers on the block. Now, with our list of the city's best happy hours, you can snuggle yourself into a nifty bar establishment, feeling just bubbly enough to keep the evening swingin'.
For the young folk, the poor folk and the folk who just like to run free, love in this economy can tend to be tricky. It’s common folklore that living in Sydney generally means that (unless you’re a multi-bazillionaire with eight private islands) taking your squeeze out on the town can mean a significant dent to your superfund and the possible loss of an arm and leg to the capitalist gods. So to all you lovers out there whose weekly budget doesn't stretch to chartering a seaplane (or even just one exotic cocktail at any CBD bar), we hear you and we see you. That’s why we have put together an ultimate list of the coolest cheap and totally free dates available to lovers in the Emerald City. Each of these options is guaranteed to set you back either nothing or next to nothing.
So grab your current cutie, leave your hundred-dolla bills at home and hit the road. Free love, folks, is where it's at.
