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).

We met with friends for drinks before dinner. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Nothing was too much effort. Service was great and quick. The cocktails were delicious . I have already recommended this bar to my work friends
Great cocktails and waiters
This could be a great bar!
Great location, friendly staff. BUT no food, almost no wine list and pricy. Sorry , corn chips ain't food.
Beautiful cocktails, great snacks, terrific service and good atmosphere
Very good. Didn't eat but the drinks and music are always great
I love the range of cocktails the place had, but was a little disappointed as they don’t have much food choices. Since it’s a bar, I really don’t expect them to have gourmet course food, but having at least wedges or chips will definitely be awesome
Best cocktail bar in Sydney! The bar tenders are fantastic and care a lot about the cocktails they are making! little on the pricey side but totally worth it!
Absolutely perfect - took a friend here for drinks and we tried multiple cocktails, each one of them delicious and like none we’d ever tried. The staff were super helpful, knowledgeable and attentive as well. Can’t wait to come back!
Wonderful assortment of drinks and ambient atmosphere
Incredible cocktails with different inventive flavours and quick and informative service!
The best crew in Sydney , fantastic cocktails and very good vibe.
This deservedly acclaimed bar still sets the benchmark for fresh produce- driven cocktails and flawless service.
A great little bar and grazing place. Highly recommended
Our waiter was amazing, super on the ball & very friendly! The whole place was super cozy without you being too close to the people next to you! Was a random find I had but I will be returning for sure
Great little cocktail bar with a great vibe definitely would recommend
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 bar in Sydney in my opinion. Cocktails change daily and they are always impressive.
Lovely staff and the drinks are always top notch - definitely a lovely place for a first date too!
We had a lovely after work cocktail and light dinner here, it’s my favourite place in the city. We’ll be back!
Great vibes. Small little area. Not too loud and great drinks!
Really nice staff who knew how to make a great cocktail. Great vibe.
Really delicious cocktails, and super friendly and fast service.
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.
