What you'll do

Visit 3 of Sydney’s best secret or small bars with your expert host customising the route based on your preferences!

Over 2.5 hours, you’ll visit 3 different bars including some very well-hidden ones, with a signature drink at each bar included. Perfect for date nights or groups of friends or colleagues who want a fun and unique night out without having to stress about bar reservations or finding these hidden bars.

Your host can personalise the route based on your drinking preferences, so let us know what you like. Whisky, gin, cocktails, tequila, craft beer or wine – we’ve got you sorted!

Depending on what you like to drink and what types of bars you’d like to visit, this tour can take place in 3 locations: Surry Hills & Darlinghurst, the Sydney CBD or the Rocks.

Please note:
- On Mon - Thurs nights, we require at least 2 guests for this experience. Please message us if you'd like to do this on your own, we'll work something out :)
- This is the premium version of "Drink & Discover Secret Bar Crawl". On Saturdays, the group consists of guests from both experiences, but the group is capped at 12 people.
- The 3 included drinks are the "signature drink" of the bar, chosen by your expert host (but with your input). You are welcome to order more!
- This isn't a budget "pub crawl" - we visit bars that locals love, and the only tequila shots are delicious.

My name is Justin and I'm a recovering lawyer. About 4 years ago I quit my corporate job to work in a happier industry - tourism! I love showing people around Sydney and host 2 of Sydney's top Airbnb Experiences.

I've solo travelled through about 40 countries in South America, Europe and Asia. Wherever I go, I like to join fun and informative walking tours and drink at awesome local bars. So that's what I created this experience - combining the best of both in 1 night!

On some weekends my co-hosts Kieran or Eddie will lead the bar crawls. They are both locals with real jobs during the week and expert bar crawl leaders on the weekend.

If your dates aren't available, please message me! I may have a solution for you <3

Unexpected Happiness Justin surprised us with an incredible tour around Darlinghurst, full of history, beer, facts, beer, joy, beer, great people, beer and more.... Tequila. Seriously, these guys are pro in what they do. Really, love this experience.

Justin is very personable and told good stories along the way along with getting around and chatting with all his group. The group were a lot of fun and we really enjoyed the evening. The bars were all excellent experiences and most were places we wouldn’t have worked out how to go to without Justin!
