Celebrate your local cocktails and bars with the launch of Australian Cocktail Month | 1-31 May

This year 12 cities will be getting on board Australian Cocktail Month with Newcastle joining in for the first time, with venues partnering with some of the best local and international alcohol brands to champion the country’s bar industry.

To get involved all you need to do is purchase the Australian Cocktail Month $20 ticket, which allows guests access to a special menu of $14 cocktails created exclusively for the month.  

Founded by influential industry figure Penny Sippe, Australian Cocktail Month aims to provide assistance to the hospitality industry by driving people into bars as they rebuild following the pandemic.

“I am so excited for another year of Australian Cocktail Month. Year two and we have more cities and double the bars involved. Encouraging consumers to head out and explore the bars that make our cities so vibrant whilst enjoying amazing cocktails created by some of the country’s best bartenders is our goal.” said Penny.
