After a sell out event in 2017, Mr Black founders Tom Baker and Philip Moore are ready to unleash their liqueur onto the streets of Australia’s biggest city again in 2018.

Established in 2012, Mr Black has become one the nation’s trendiest brews. Setting out to make the best coffee liqueur in the world, distillers, Baker and Moore, are using the festival to unite festival goers and their love for everything bitter.

The Mr Black Festival will test your coffee connoisseur knowledge at a raft of martini and cold brew demonstrations. With free tastings aplenty, you will be bouncing off The Rocks at the Overseas Passenger Terminal.


At last years event, Sydney foodies indulged in a range of delicious eats from the likes of Loving Earth Chocolate, Young Henrys and Byron Bay Cookie Co. Although this year’s food line up is yet to be announced, we can only hope for some of the same deliciousness.

Tickets are yet to be released, but we suggest keeping your eyes peeled as this will no doubt be a sell out event!
