Sydney has just gained a major addition to its hospitality scene as internationally acclaimed bartender Cedric Mendoza joins Grain Bar — the award-winning CBD cocktail bar located within the Four Seasons Hotel Sydney.

Mendoza hails from Singapore, where he most recently ran Manhattan in the Four Seasons Hotel Regent Singapore. The bar was awarded the third top spot on the prestigious 2018 World's Best Bars list, making it the number one bar in Asia. So, the man's a big deal.

After collaborating with the Grain team back in 2018, Mendoza loved his Sydney experience so much that he's now signing on full time. Under his reign, Grain will be serving up creative yet balanced drinks that champion native Australian ingredients and some rare drops — including kangaroo-soaked mezcal, rye vodkas and gins, plus some of Mendoza's favourite whiskys.

To celebrate Mendoza's arrival, we've teamed up with Grain Bar to award one lucky winner a whopping $500 bar tab, including a complimentary cocktail on arrival — personalised to your taste by Mendoza, naturally.

Mendoza has just created a new Rye July cocktail list — a menu entirely dedicated to rye whisky — which is available throughout July and August. With the list including concoctions like the Red Lady (Wild Turkey rye, Lairds applejack, St. George raspberry liqueur, house-made grenadine, lemon juice and egg white) and the Southern Sour (High West double rye, house-made spiced syrup, lemon juice and Australian shiraz), we can only imagine what Mendoza will bring on this decadent night out.

If you're keen to treat your best mates to a decadent night out — which obviously you are — enter your details below to be in the running.
