Doltone House Jones Bay Wharf was thrilled to have hosted the Bartender Magazine’s Australian Bar Awards on September 2018. Spectacular views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and city skyline created the perfect backdrop to what was a marvellous event.

Hundreds of bar professionals from around Australia headed down to our picturesque waterfront venue for a night of mingling, drinking cocktails and congratulating the fine efforts of the best in the industry.
