Cocktail Bar
Bulletin Place is a multi-award winning bar in Sydney CBD.

Bulletin Place was opened in 2012 by three bartenders to make a bar with “all of the things we liked, none of the things we hate” about bars.

They picked up a cheap lease on a former Japanese noodle joint, did most of the renovations themselves while spending more money on the ice machines than on furniture.

Now, around 8 years later, this hard to find, “shoe-box sized” 45-seater room is one of Australia’s most awarded-ever bars and recognised globally for the quality of drinks, friendly team and casual vibe.

We are open Wednesday to Saturday from 5 pm and located 1min walk from Circular Quay, perfect for after-work, pre-dinner, post-dinner and sod-it-lets-skip-dinner drinks & nibbles.

We are open late each night for cocktails, whiskies, wine & beer, perfect for pre and post gigs & shows at the Sydney Opera House. (~8 mins walk).

This was our first visit to Bulletin Place. I picked it for post marriage-proposal cocktails. She said yes! - so we were both ready for some seriously good cocktails, and we were not disappointed. We had three different cocktails each, including customised. All were excellent - and very memorable. The mixologists were very friendly, and highly knowledgeable. We always try and sit at the bar so we can learn more about what we were drinking, and we certainly left the bar a little bit wiser. We were the first to arrive (at 5pm), and by the time we left 90 mins later the place was buzzing and almost full. Highly recommended as an intimate meeting place for after work drinks. Will definitely return.

Best cocktail bar in Sydney! Fight me! 😁💯❤
In all seriousness, each cocktail is an experience unto it's own.
Each sip awakening more curiosity inside your mind.
