It’s a dining concept that’s already won over Aussies, with the first WingHAÜS venue launched in September 2019 in Brisbane. For punters, expect a boisterous sports-bar vibe with over 20 large-screen TVs, 40 draught beers and margaritas on tap plus enough space to accommodate 145 guests. Find out more here.
The crew behind Australia’s most sessionable beer is the latest addition to Marrickville’s growing brewery scene. The Philter crew are set to take over an old yogurt factory just a stone’s throw from Wicks Park on Sydenham Road in early 2020, with a dedicated space made for pouring fresh kegs of their award-winning brews.

In exciting news for gin lovers, the crew from Healsville’s award-winning distillery Four Pillars are set to open their first Sydney outpost in 2020. After taking out the title of 2019 International Gin Producer of the Year at the 50th Annual International Wine and Spirits Competition in 2019, there’s plenty of reason to get excited about this new bar. Taking over the 1930s Bussell Bros. building, adjacent to The Dolphin in Surry Hills, soon you’ll also be able to pop in for an after work tipple with a small bar license in the works.
