Tim Philips is a celebrated Australian mixologist and bartender whose talents have taken him around the world, and who now co-owns acclaimed Sydney venues Bulletin Place and Dead Ringer. Tim won World Class Bartender of the Year in Rio de Janeiro in 2012, and with World Class coming to Sydney this year (April 28 to May 2), we chat to him about his Sydney recommendations.
When it comes to exploring the city, Tim thinks the best way to soak up Sydney is on foot. He lists his two favourite Sydney restaurants as Newtown gem Continental Deli and Momofuku Seiobo, a prized attraction of The Star Sydney, and for his top tucked away spot, Tim nominates Parsley Bay in Vaucluse, which is “perfect for a picnic or kid’s birthday.”
“We’re lucky to live in Sydney with one of the most vibrant bar scenes in the world and so many talented staff members,” he says of the lifting of the lockout laws. “This is a great opportunity to get back out there and support not only the famous bars but also the smaller bars that give Sydney the tension a city needs to be three dimensional.”
