The fifth year of the Australian drinks industry’s most respected awards ceremony was our most glamorous yet!
Held at the brand-new ICC Sydney, in Darling Harbour, the 2017 Australian drinks Awards had a glamorous black, red and gold theme.
After walking down the red carpet, guests sat down for a the theatre-style presentation of all awards excluding Brand of the Year and Supplier of the Year. After the presentation, everyone moved to a pre-dinner cocktail party before being seated for dinner in the Grand Ballroom and the presentation of the two major awards.
When the formalities of the evening concluded, the fun will continued with an after-party hosted by Award Partner StayinFront. It featured 48 West, a classy, sophisticated jazz band that re-imagined forever-favourite radio hits into swinging jazz anthems.
Dancers signalled the beginning of the after-party fun, twirling through the room, grabbing guests along the way to spin on the dancefloor.
Here are a few of our favourite photos from the Grand Ballroom.
