Nominated in 2009 Australian Bar Awards

I know the whole voting/judging process is a bit of a mystery but, nevertheless, it's a thrill to have both Taphouses nominated as finalists in the 2009 Australian Bar Awards. Darlo was nominated as New Hotel of the Year while both venues are finalists in the Best Specialty Beer Venue category.

Regardless of whether we win or not, it's an excuse for a fun night out in Sydney and a nice recognition of a lot of hard work by a lot of people! Congrats to everyone involved...

See all the nominations here.


  1. Don't know if this game is played the same way that the Restaurant & Catering Assoc. play their silly games with Restaurant of the Year voting ... if so, you're as good a chance as any! No public/customer vote? Just an 'industry' award? Either way, you guys all know what we think anyway. Good Luck!

  2. If one of The Local venues don't win then there is something seriously fucked up. Just my humble opinion. Good luck anyway!
