Moonshine Bar

back Back to Feasts

The social centrepiece of the Mile is Moonshine Bar. This is where you can get a drink, get fed, pull up a deck chair or dance the night away. 

The main room of Moonshine Bar is filled with an enormous art installation called Hi-Vis, which is free to explore. It's an unmissable experience that is also literally impossible to miss. 

Awesome ticketed events will also be held in the installation space, so sometimes that part will be closed off to ticket buyers only. At these times, you will still be able to enjoy drinks, food and seating in the foyer and outside areas of Moonshine Bar. See the Moonshine Bar menu and installation hours below. 


Moonshine Bar is a licensed venue – patrons under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

This venue is on The Thirsty Mile for Sydney Festival 2024.
