COVID 19 has had a devastating impact on the Inner West's night time economy, with hundreds out of work and venues struggling to keep their heads above water. This has been particularly true for the small bars and live music venues that make the inner west such an eclectic, exciting place to live and work, but businesses have quickly adapted. The Sausage Factory has become a hub for local products and produce. Small bars like Temperance Society and Titus Jones have delivered inner westies with cocktails right to our door, pubs and restaurants have provided our favourite meals. The Red Rattler Theatre, Butchers Brew and Lazybones have streamed live performances right to our living rooms, giving local artists and musicians a space to play. With restrictions now lifting, our local night time economy needs even greater investment and support to help get these much-loved businesses back on their feet. Thank you to all the inner west businesses, hospitality workers, artists and delivery drivers for all your hard work during this pandemic.
