Sydney Water Pop Up Water Bar

2016 marked the debut Sydney Water’s Pop Up Water Bar. Our mixologists served refreshing water infusions, such as Strawberry Mint Water or Lemon Lime Water, and chilled tap water. We answered customers’ questions and educated about where our drinking water comes from and what we do to make sure quality is assured. Our Water Bar was a featured attraction at the Sydney Festival, Parramatta’s Australia Day celebrations, The Royal Easter Show and more. It gave Sydneysiders a chance to stop have a chat, relax and have a wellness drink on us.
