By Terry Christodoulou 28/05/2020

Four Pillars is set to open the doors on a debut Sydney venture set to further elevate the city’s urban drinking landscape – and mean more than a few lost afternoons for the Robb Report team.

The new Surry Hills outpost will feature a gin shop and gin lab that boasts speakeasy cocktail bar Eileen’s – named after co-founder Matt Jones’ mother and designed by world-leading Oslo-based agency Behind Bars.

The opening on June 12 – coincides with Word Gin Weekend, because, yes, that’s a thing. As such Four Pillars has a weekend of activities planned, including various masterclasses and (naturally) cocktails to celebrate.

Cameron Mackenzie, James Irvine, Stu Gregor and Matt Jones, readying Four Pillars Sydney venue.


For a close up look at how the distillery produces its award-winning tipples, the Gin Lab will open 10am-6pm daily, slinging Four Pillars G&T paddles alongside classics. Eileen’s, meanwhile, will operate from 5pm-midnight Wednesday through Saturday.

As for the shop – pop in for some merch if you’re that way inclined, or, better still, take home a limited-edition bottle.
