Who is in the running for the 2020 Time Out Bar Awards?

Time Out Melbourne

The nominees for the 2020 Time Out Bar Awards for both Melbourne and Sydney have been announced, so who has made the list this year?

The awards feature six categories for venues including Best New Bar, Best Wine Bar, Best Cocktail Bar and Best Bar Food. There is also a Best Bar Team category and Bartender of the Year.

There are also two other categories – Bar of the Year and the Legend Award – which do not have nominees, with the winners announced on the night. There is also a People’s Choice Award, which has been voted on by Time Out readers.

Both Melbourne and Sydney have their own award nights with the Time Out Melbourne winners announced at the General Assembly, South Wharf on Monday December 2 and the Time Out Sydney winners revealed a week later the Powerhouse Museum on Monday December 9.

Speaking about the awards, Time Out Melbourne’s Food and Drink Editor, Jess Ho, said: “The bar scene in Melbourne is more innovative than ever before, making this city an exciting place to drink in.

“Melbourne’s wonderful wine bars are also raising the bar on food and cocktail offerings, creating hybrid venues like we have never had before. Cocktail bars continue to innovate, using techniques once only applied to food, all while creating the low- and no- alcohol beverages that are continuing to be in high demand.”

Time Out Sydney’s Food and Drink Editor Matthew Hirsch added: “This year’s nominees paint a real picture of just how many dynamite drinking experiences you can have in Sydney.

“Small venues are redefining the ‘neighbourhood bar’. Pubs are pouring natty wines and pressing tortillas for tacos. We have a standing-room only mezcaleria. Despite the restrictions that have hampered our city’s nightlife, the talent pool is stronger than ever and the quality of what’s on offer is at an all-time high.”
