When Tim Philips-Johansson and his two mates opened Bulletin Place in December, 2012, he claims that they had no idea what they were doing. But what they perhaps lacked in business acumen, the team made up in alcohol expertise. The small bar took on a homely vibe, putting the focus on an ever-changing cocktail menu inspired by seasonal Australian produce. And really, aren't the drinks what matter most in a cocktail bar? Apparently so – fast forward five years and Bulletin Place has clocked over 1,500 daily cocktail menus and collected a bevy of industry accolades along the way.
To celebrate a successful half-decade as one of Sydney's best small bars, Bulletin Place is gearing up for a party. Stop by on Sunday, December 17, between 6pm and 10pm, to join the festivities. Alongside a selection of classic tipples, cupcakes and pinatas, five of Bulletin Place's specialist cocktails from years past will make their return. Drinks disappear from Bulletin Bar almost as soon as they appear – and while they are always replaced with something equally tasty, if you've ever bemoaned the disappearance of favourite, this could be the chance to relive the magic.
