Welcome to Bulletin Place

The Story

Bulletin Place was opened in 2012 by three bartenders to make a bar with “all of the things we liked, none of the things we hate” about bars.

They picked up a cheap lease on a former Japanese noodle joint, did most of the renovations themselves while spending more money on the ice machines than on furniture.

Now, around 6 years later, this hard to find, “shoe-box sized” 45-seater room is one of Australia’s most awarded-ever bars and recognised globally for the quality of drinks, friendly team and casual vibe.

We are Open Monday to Saturday from 4pm and located 1min walk from Circular Quay, perfect for after-work, pre-dinner, post-dinner and sod-it-lets-skip-dinner drinks & nibbles.

We are open late each night for cocktails, whiskies, wine & beer, perfect for pre and post gigs & shows at the Sydney Opera House.(~8 mins walk).

We are also only minutes from Wynyard Station, Barangaroo, The Royal Botanical Garden, The Cruise ship terminal and the Sydney City Recital Hall. So many options!

All About Us

Bulletin Place is a mecca for quality cocktails, liquor and wine served with care and genuine charm.

Our outstanding signature is a daily changing cocktail menu created from strictly seasonal produce that’s attained from the markets each morning. This offering is bolstered by a serious zest for the best classic cocktails.

Our central ethos is change, and that means that everything rotates.

Whether it’s our seasonally varied Australian wine list, our weekly changing craft beers or our ever changing spirits collection; a trip to Bulletin Place is never the same twice! In the cosy atmosphere, there’s no better place to discover some great new flavours with friends.

You’re still reading?! Excellent!

Bulletin Place was created with the intention of being a tiny oasis in the urban landscape. There are things we won’t budge on in terms of standards and a few affectations we avoid in the name of hospitality, efficiency and purity of product.

You’ll find the following core principles in each daily cocktail list:

  • Source the finest Australian seasonal produce
  • Treat it with respect
  • Concise pairings with the most premium spirits and modifiers
  • Presentation: Less is more
  • Use of potentially crap puns when naming said drink
