DOLPHIN WINE BAR won Best Wine Bar.
BIG POPPA’S in Darlo went home with Best Restaurant Bar.
GRETZ in Enmore took out the Best Neighbourhood Bar but that wasn’t without a fight with competition from Castle Hill, Parramatta, Redfern and Newtown!

RYAN SNEDDEN from Lobo Plantation won the Hot Talent Award.
HUDSON BALLROOM (formerly Plan B and Goodgod) received the People’s Choice Award.
