Sydney Bar Week is a fixture on the Australian drinks industry calendar and after a massive Sydney Bar Week in 2019, plans for an even bigger Bar Week are underway for 2020. There is one change on the cards however, and that is that we are moving Sydney Bar Week from its usual time in September to August, from Saturday 22nd to Wednesday 26th August. Expect a bigger line-up including more parties, more education and all your favourites to be hosted in various venues across the harbour city. So mark your diaries as Sydney Bar Week is locked in.  

To catch up on all the news and galleries from 2019, simply visit the online home of Australian Bartender magazine by clicking here.

More information on events and timetables will be announced in 2020.
