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).
