If you’ve ever wanted to know what it takes to open a bar — in the middle of a global pandemic — and months of lockdown, The Blend by Beam Suntory and The Blends of the World are back with a behind the scenes look at the making of new Sydney bar, About Time.

An online education resource, which is a four-episode docuseries following seven mates, affectionately known to one another as The Danger Friends.

Whom all got to know each other in the 2010s working the bars of Kings Cross, we introduce Tom Price, Ben Hickey, Naomi Palmer, Steve Davis, Paul Oscar, Shannon Ponsford and Jono Carr. 

Each episode tracks them as they take their late-night post-work dream of opening a bar together and turn it into reality in the midst of an unprecedented pandemic. From concept, to cocktail menu creation, to staff hiring and team culture, to budgeting and operations…. The docuseries shares it all.

Not only do they share their experiences and advice, but you’ll see behind the scenes of a bar build — long days at the disc sander, painting walls, building tables and the backbar; if you’ve ever wanted to make a bar of your own, this is what you’re in for.

Brought to you by The Blends of the World and The Blend, you can watch each of the four episodes now by clicking HERE.
