40 Sydney Bars

December 31, 2013 Challenge, Life

Another challenge – but this should not be too much hard work; after all, one of my New Year’s resolutions is to have more fun (and work less). This challenge is certainly aligned with that!

My goal is to visit 40 of the bars listed in Time Out’s 100 Best Sydney Bars & Pubs in their 2014 Bar Guide. This challenge is aligned with my goals to spend more time with friends, work less and have more fun and explore more of greater Sydney.

I’m actually not a big drinker to be honest, but I really like the cosy, quirky small bar scene that’s in swing at the moment.

The full list with write-ups can be found on Time Out’s website; here’s the whole list in order including the change in rank from last year.

The sunshine coloured text indicates bars I have already been to; as my goal is to visit new places I will update my progress as the year goes on – these bar visits will be marked in coral text.
