  • Los Barbudos
    amystown.com Smith Street, the clever thing that it is, is gaining new watering holes by the day. Los Barbudos, a small space with a lot of personality, is one of them. The team behind Lily Blacks, Mr Wow’s, Double Happiness and New Gold Mountain, home to some of Melbourne’s loosest times, are also behind this […]
  • Sweetwater Inn
    amystown.com Inspiration for new bars these days often comes from New York or London, but you rarely see people putting down outback Australia and Americana on their inspirational lists.

Ketel One Bar Tours has been showing drinks enthusiasts how to “Live like a local, drink like a local” since April 2011. Founded food and drinks lover Alex Adams (Ms Darlinghurst) in Sydney, Ketel One Bar Tours has since expanded into Melbourne. This is not your average backpacker booze-up. We take guests down hidden laneways and behind obscure doors where cool bars are buzzing with in-the-know locals.

We know how hard it is to keep up with what’s happening in todays “bar scene” with new small bars popping up every week. Our tours are designed to keep you in the loop. All tours have an expert tour guide to lead the way while you drink premium cocktails and nibble your way around town.

Listen to some of Sydney and Melbourne’s best bartenders talk about the culture of the cocktail and the inspiration behind them, while your tour guide gives a historic background of the bars.

We offer a range of tours in Sydney including our CBD Hidden Bars Tour, 1920’s Cocktail Tour, Razorhurst Tour, Mid-Century Pop Tour + many more. Melbourne is much the same with tours including the Americana Bar Tour, Fitzroy Bar Tour and CBD Hidden Bars tour.
