WEBSTERS BAR, ‘2ND BEST WHISKY BAR IN AUSTRALIA’

– Whisky Magazine, 2018

We are very excited to be included in Whisky Magazine’s ‘Icons of Whisky Australia – Bar of The Year’ Nominations.

Being listed among such incredible venues as Baxter Inn, Mjolner & NOLA is such a humbling experience, let alone coming second, which is an honor to say the least.

Our venue, formerly known as Zanzibar, has come a long way since the name change and three floor renovation. It has been a team effort, from our talented Kitchen crew, to our dedicated bar staff & management team to get us where we are today. Websters Bar started off its journey with only 128 whiskys, and were proud to have that selection. Just over 2 years later and our collection has just overstepped 600.

Something that we have always believed in is the offering of educational dinners, focusing on both local craft beers, whiskys from across the globe, and also Hunter Valley wines. We wanted a way to create a formal, yet relaxed and entertaining environment for our customers, and we will continue to grow with these dinners and we want to thank everyone who has attended our events in the past. Without our friends and followers these evenings wouldn’t be possible.

Cheers to the years ahead, and thanks again for your support and joining us in this journey.

The Websters Team

KING ST BAR

Ground floor

The entry level of our venue is a rustic street bar, paying homage to a 1950’s Industrial & steampunk era, with wooden and brick interiors, antique copper lighting, and a quirky collection of hand-picked curios from outback Australia. This bar is relaxed and comfortable in nature through the day, and late on Friday & Saturday evenings transforms into a thriving nightspot and dance floor.

BOURBON BAR & GRILL

Level 1

With ambient lighting, warm wood decor, a fireplace, Chesterfield booth seating and a distinct Prohibition feel, this floor is designed for comfort and class. The Websters Signature Bar features over 430 whiskys, ranging rare, unreleased and exclusive drams. Along with specially crafted cocktails, internationally renowned Belgian beers, unique wine varietals from the Hunter Valley Region, The Bourbon Bar & Grill is the perfect place for both intimate and group gatherings.
