Several of Sydney’s small bars have created signature cocktails as part of their partnership with the Sydney Festival which will be available throughout January.
The Chair of the Sydney Festival, Lord Mayor Clover Moore, believes the special Festival cocktails, which the bars are all selling for $15, will help highlight and promote the growing number of small bars across the city.
"The new partnership with Sydney Festival will help entice festival-lovers into our small bars, generating customers and money into our local economy, while also showcasing the boutique small bars themselves,” Moore says.
"Small bars are low-impact venues that offer a quieter place for people to meet and mingle before or after a Sydney Festival show, and they're helping to change the drinking culture in our city.”
The partnering bars are 13B, Berta Restaurant and Bar, Corridor, The Commons, Grandma's, Green Room Lounge, Hinky Dinks, Jester Seeds, The Owl House, The Passage and Since I Left You, with special cocktails also available at the Jägermeister Hunting Lodge and Keystone Festival Bar pop-up festival venues.
As part of Keystone's major sponsorship of the event, the Keystone Sydney Festival cocktail is also available at its venues across the city including Bungalow 8, Cargo Bar & Lounge, Gazebo Wine Garden, Kit & Kaboodle, Manly Wine, The Sugarmill, theloft and the The Winery.
