What to Expect
Drink, dine and discover as you join Sydney's best bar crawl! This experience is perfect for date nights, small groups, solo travellers and locals who want a fun and unique night out to explore some of Sydney's best small bars.
Join your friendly host along with a fun group of a maximum of 12 people as you are taken around to three to four different venues including some very well-hidden bars and some of the city's top-rated cocktail bars. Your first drink of the night is included so enjoy a cold beer or wine and share some nibblies as you get to know your fellow revellers.
You will find a nightlife scene to suit every party-goer in Sydney, from trendy cocktail bars to grungy hidden laneway bars and depending on the night you choose, you will get to experience a different side of Sydney. On Tuesday nights, explore some of Sydney's best bars around the CBD, with a focus on the "Bermuda Triangle" of small bars spread across York, Clarence and Kent streets. On Thursday nights, hit up Circular Quay and The Rocks, where a bunch of fantastic new cocktail bars have opened up in recent years. And on Saturday nights, head to the local stomping grounds of Surry Hills and Darlinghurst, so you can party like it's the weekend (because it is!).
After the bar crawl, you will be provided with a map link to all the bars and places visited throughout the night, plus some extra spots to check out so you can keep the good times going. With good food, great bars, fun times and new friends from all over the world - this is your ticket to the best night out in Sydney!

Frequently Asked Questions
- You must bring photo identification (either passport or driver's licence). Overseas driver's licences are acceptable.

We run tours, rain or shine. If it’s looking a bit rainy, bring your umbrella, grab your poncho, and get ready to have fun. We will never let a little rain stop us.
With that said, safety comes first. If weather creates a safety concern, either before or during the experience, we may cancel the tour. In this case, we will either reschedule the tour or issue a full refund.
Yes, please! You don’t want to be “that guy” on one of the evening tours, so please, eat beforehand or arrive 10 minutes early and get some food at the first bar. There is always an opportunity for more food during the night, but we don’t recommend showing up on an empty stomach (or several drinks in for that matter).
Of course you will! While you would think a Secret Bar Crawl involves a lot of drinking, this is definitely not a “pub crawl” with cheap shots and sticky dance floors. You are welcome to drink as much (within limits) or as little as you like. In fact, we often have guests join the Secret Bar Crawl who don’t drink at all, but are just looking for a fun night and to visit a few new venues, or are travelling solo and don’t feel comfortable going to bars on their own. Drinking alcohol is not at all necessary to enjoy one of our tours!
Absolutely! You will make new friends on this tour. We welcome solo, couples of all ages!
