Frequently Asked Questions

How you can join Bars March

What's Bars March?

Bars March is a month-long celebration of bar culture, featuring great venues and drinks. We raise money for animal welfare charities by encouraging everyone to head out on the town throughout March to enjoy our Participating Venues responsibly. Our campaign also promotes mindful, responsible and sociable enjoyment of great drinks. Our mission: good times for a good cause.

It works like this

Throughout March, our Participating Venues add a Bars March drink of their choice to their menus and donate a percentage of the sales to our charities. We encourage our Marchers to head out to the venues and post up a storm on social media while they 'have a drink, save a dog.'

Who gets involved?

Over the years, our mix of generous supporters has included venues of all shapes and sizes, from larger groups such as Merivale to craft-focused independents like Lobo Plantation, The Barber Shop and Tokyo Bird. Whether you’re a bustling suburban pub or a speciality small bar, a café or a club, we’d love you on board and we’ll promote your participation across all our platforms and media (Bars March boss Amy Cooper is a journo/columnist for Good Food). Our celebrity ambassadors include Jamie Durie, TV vet Dr Katrina Warren, and an army of ‘Marchers’ who love bars, doggos and good drinks.

Our cause

Bars March supports Animal Welfare League NSW and, in Victoria, Save a Dog Scheme (SADS). Both these amazing organisations have been caring for surrendered, neglected and abandoned animals for decades.

What's in it for the venues?

  • The Bars March PR, social media and marketing teams promote your venue via online channels including website, Facebook and Instagram, and in our media communications.
  • Eye-catching point of sale materials supplied to help promote your participation.
  • Promotional listing and photo for your venue and cocktail on the Bars March website.
  • Support for Bars March events to bring extra traffic into your venue.

What do I need to do?

To participate in Bars March, we ask venues to:

  • Create and sell a special Bars March drink throughout March. A minimum of a dollar per drink – ‘A Dollar for A Dog!’ - must be donated to Animal Welfare League NSW or Save a Dog Scheme at the end of March.
  • Display our PoS materials in your venue throughout March.
  • Post up a storm about Bars March on your social media channels!
