Happy Hour in Western Sydney

As you’re probably aware, here at The WEST Journal, we love to celebrate all businesses within Western Sydney. Like many of you, we are well aware of the challenging times businesses and individuals alike are facing with the current lockdown restrictions.

Something that really warms our hearts and makes us proud to stand alongside fellow businesses within Western Sydney is the resilience and adaption shown with many hospitality businesses around the area. When life gets tough, they choose to pivot and explore other avenues. We’re blown away by their creativity and ability to adapt to life’s uncertainties. Today, and all through this week, we are bringing you a selection of local businesses who have adapted to the change and are bringing a wonderful selection of offerings to the market!


Barenz, loated in Argyle Street Camden has been continually adapting and changing its offerings for the public during the current lockdown.
