Time Out Sydney

And the winners are…

An all-time record of 1000 members of the bar industry and Time Out readers gathered at the Wentworth Park Greyhounds on Sunday, November 23 to welcome summer and raise a glass to the best bars in the business. In between beers from White Rabbit Brewery, cider from Bilpin Cider Co, wines from Pepperjack wines and Stoli Mule, guests were treated to snacks including corn fritters, Vietnamese rolls, fried chicken wings, empanadas from our friends at Food Society.

“This year’s awards are our biggest and most important yet,” said Time Out’s Chief Food and Drink Critic, Myffy Rigby. “We’ve been at this for seven years, constantly revaluating what it is that makes a prize winner. And each time, we raise the bar a little higher.”

Entertainment, ever the anchor at a Time Out party, was provided by Rockhouse DJ, Marc Rondeau who spun rare 45s while everyone else spun on the dance-floor. And yes, there were actual races with actual dogs. There were carnival acts by Slide roaming, Fotobox fun and giant games guests competed over in between the races.

Andrew O'Keefe (star of Deal or No Deal and Weekend Sunrise) had us in stitches during the award ceremony and guests not only had a damn fine time, but also walked away with the 7th Annual Time Out Sydney Bar Guide before it hits news stands next week.

Congratulations to all our fantastic winners and nominees - bring on 2015.
