Drink, dine and discover on Sydney's best bar crawl! Perfect for date nights, singles, all ages and locals who want a fun and unique night out.
Explore Surry Hills and Darlinghurst's small bars with a great group of locals and travellers. Over 3 - 4 hours, you'll visit some of Sydney's greatest small bars, and finish at a place where you dance the night away with new friends. We stop for drinks at 3 or 4 bars, with 1 drink and some share food provided. As we explore, you'll hear stories of local heroes and villains, crazy but true history and learn a bit about Australian slang and humour too.
We'll provide you with a map link to all the bars and places visited throughout the night, plus some extra spots to check out. If you want to go all-out, choose the "Premium" package which includes 3 drinks, including signature drinks at each bar, such as delicious margaritas and whiskey-based cocktails.
Good food, great bars, fun times & new friends from all over the world - what are you waiting for?!
Your guide will normally be Justin. I'm a recovering lawyer and the "Head Honcho" of AussieYou. About 4 years ago I quit my corporate job to work in a happier industry - tourism! I love showing people around Sydney and bringing together people from all over the world. Back when I was a lawyer I spent far too much money hunting out the best bars in Sydney, so trust me, I've done my research for this secret bar crawl.
I have also solo travelled all through South America, Europe and Asia, visiting over 40 years. I have previously lived and studied in China - yep, 我会说中文！(I can speak Chinese).
On some weekends my co-hosts Eddie or Kieran will lead the bar crawls. They are both locals with real jobs during the week and expert bar crawl leaders on the weekend.
I am on a quest to rediscover Sydney and, was left a tad disappointed with the lack of stories and history to be told. We went to a brewery and Keiran, as lovely as he is, was unsure of where the beer was sourced when some questions were asked. Admittedly, am not a 20 something or 30 something age group, so I have much control over how much alcohol I want to consume. It was not about going out binge drinking ... There was also one pub that we did not have reservations for and, had to be shown to the "sister" club.
Hi Jeanne, thanks for your review. Sorry you were a tad disappointed from your experience. We do try to strike the right balance between stories and bars, although it sounds like you may have been with a more drinking-focused group of fellow guests the evening you joined. We certainly don't encourage binge drinking, which is why we only include the first drink, and make it clear to all guests that it is up to them as to how much they drink throughout the night. In terms of your point on Kieran's knowledge of the beers, you visited a craft beer bar (not a brewery) and they have 12 beers on tap that change every week, sourced from all around Australia and overseas. I don't expect Kieran or any of my guides to have detailed knowledge about the beers there given how frequently they change, but I hope he was able to point you in the right direction to find a drink you liked. Finally, we normally have reservations at every bar, but the Saturday you joined was right after restrictions had been lifted on dancing, making it a much busier Saturday than usual - as a result, we weren't able to make a reservation at 1 of the 4 bars we visit, and had to make a last-minute change. I apologise for this lack of organisation, as it is out of the ordinary for us. Thanks again for your feedback and I hope you'll join one of our other tours such as our Newtown tour, as they have a stronger focus on stories and history. Kind regards, Justin
This is a great tour for a fun night, being taken without wondering where to go and the guide goes to the bar for you (recommend you take the premium package for this).
Thanks Carol for your lovely review. Great that you were able to join us for a second tour after taking part in the Newtown one. I'm glad you enjoyed the bars and having Kieran take care of you in terms of drink choices :) Catch you on another tour in the future! Cheers, Justin
Our group of 10 had a terrific night with Justin as our tour guide. We visited 4 lively bars and learned some interesting history of the area of Darlinghurst and Surrey Hills. It was well organised and fun and I will be recommending it to other friends and my overseas visitors.
Thanks Victoria, had a great time showing you and your lively group around! I look forward to welcoming you or your visitors back on another bar crawl in the future. Cheers, Justin
I had so much fun. My tour guide was Eddie, who is a very engaging host. The bars were interesting and quirky. I would never have found them on my own, which is another reason why I would recommend the tour. I also learned a bit about Sydney, which was really cool (and separates it from regular bar crawls). Thanks again!
Thanks Emily for the kind words, I'll pass them onto Eddie. We love hearing it when guests discover new bars from our tours, while also getting to learn a bit from our stories along the way. Catch you another tour in the future! Cheers, Justin
Had a great night, met some lovely people and found some great new bars. Justin is a friendly and knowledgeable host and I look forward to doing some more tours. Thank you!
