Best Specialty Beer Venue in Australia - Darlo wins again!

Our hangover has cleared and we are very happy to announce that The Local Taphouse Darlinghurst was judged to be the Best Specialty Beer Venue in Australia at a gala event at The Sydney Hilton ballroom last Wednesday.

After taking the award in 2009, the competition stepped up a notch and we were up against our sister venue The Local Taphouse (St. Kilda), Biero, Spotted Cow, Epoque Belgian Beer Cafe, The Wheatsheaf and Cookie. Darlinghurst once again came out on top!

The win was made possible thanks to our awesome beer-loving customers including a great bunch of regulars who continued to support us throughout the year. Paul and Les would like to send a huge thanks to the bar crew for their passion for great craft beer & their dedication in providing another great year of outstanding customer service. We couldn't do it without you team - you guys & gals ROCK!

Special kudos to Robbie and the kitchen crew for pumping out a great range of consistently high quality food at both the regular nights and functions/special events. Watch this space - we ain't done yet!


  1. Well deserved guys, thanks for providing a great place to drink amidst a city of terrible bars and pubs. Finally we're getting there!

  2. Thanks Anon. As Paul said, we can't do what we love if customers don't like and enjoy it. Given it seems they do (thankfully), we have plenty of more beery things planned..

    Cheer and (good) beers!
