Perth’s best bartenders are taking over Door Knock to launch Sydney Bar Week

Sydney Bar Week is only a couple months (and a bit) away, which means it’s time to start planning your schedule and booking the time off work.

This year we have 35 events taking place over the five days of Sydney Bar Week, starting on Saturday 14th and finishing up on Wednesday 18th September (yes, we know we’re two days short of a week but trust us, five days is more than enough).

And 2019 will see Bar Week starting off strong, with three great events planned for Saturday the 14th. And Saturday’s official Sydney Bar Week launch is one event you won’t want to miss.

That’s because you’ll have some of Perth’s best bartenders taking over Door Knock and kicking off Bar Week in true Perth party fashion. Door Knock have taken the frankly risky decision of allowing some of Perth’s most notorious to step behind their bar and get into their kitchen to bring you a taste of what they do back home.

If you’ve ever had the pleasure of playing up in Perth, you’ll know that they know how to party, so prepare yourself for a killer evening.

Better get to booking your time off work ASAP.
