Whiskey, Cocktails and Tamworth's best kept secrets

The Press is a Whiskey and Cocktail bar in Tamworth NSW. A step back to a time where we connected not through screens and filters, but over a few glasses of our favourite liquors. Drink, Mix and Relax in Tamworth’s best kept secret bar located in the Basement of the Leader Building, an important part of Tamworth’s heritage since 1924. Strictly 18+ only.

About the Press
