Message the group chat ASAP: an arvo of cocktails is calling your name. This weekend, YCK Laneways is giving you the chance to dive into Sydney's casual drinking scene with a self-guided tour of its intimate precinct. Wander YCK will see you hitting up four of the precinct's bars back-to-back for a cocktail — think: bar-hopping levelled up.

On Saturday, October 7, YCK Laneways' small bars will open their doors to serve up some stellar cocktails — and you'll be able to venture through four of your favourites from 4pm to 6pm, stopping for a drink at each one. Whether you're revelling in all that Sydney's bar scene has to offer or are simply ticking off stops on your pre-built hitlist, this one-off experience gives you the chance to explore some CBD favourites — and you'll be in the driver's seat the entire time.

The self-guided tour will span your choice of eleven YCK venues, with the likes of Burrow Bar, Esteban, PS40, The Duke of Clarence and Tiva all on the standout lineup. And the best part? You'll be able to indulge in a cocktail from four of these beloved watering holes — and a quick bite from whichever bar you choose to kick off your journey — for just $69.

In order to make the most of the deal, you'll have to be prepared and plan ahead. For the comprehensive planners, the interactive online map provided by YCK Laneways will be your holy grail. It's a fun and accessible way to learn about each venue on offer and pick your favourites.

Then, head over to the first venue of your choosing on the day, where you'll receive four tokens. One of these tokens equates to a cocktail and a bite, which you'll collect from the starting venue, and the other three equate to a cocktail from each of the other bars on your itinerary, so be sure to peruse both the cocktails and bites available at each venue before finalising your order of opperations.

If you ask us, we'd start at Esteban for a pork belly taco and a Jardin Urbano, before hitting Tiva and Burrow Bar on your way to PS40one of our favourite bars in Sydney — to finish things off with a Salted Pina Colada.
