A potential lifeline has been handed to Sydney’s small bar industry, which was effectively shuttered on Monday as the federal government ordered the closure of non-essential services – including pubs and clubs – to stop the spread of COVID-19.

New South Wales’ existing restrictions on alcohol licensing will be immediately lifted, to allow door-to-door delivery of cocktails and other alcoholic beverages.

This Friday, we encourage you to support a bar near you by ordering an elaborate cocktail or two and crank up the group chat for an end-of-week drink session, corona-style.
