The Brief

Engineroom were briefed to develop new branding for Buckley’s Bar, located in a prime position at Circular Quay, Harbourside. Boasting panoramic water, bridge and CBD views, Buckleys competes for a busy tourist trade with prestigous neighbours including Opera Bar, and the acclaimed restaurants Aria and Bennelong.

The existing branding lacked character and relevance. In addition to this, there was no focus on the venues strengths other than location, AS A RESULT the venue was struggling with an identity crisis. This meant marketing and advertising was unfocussed and ineffective in attracting patrons other than the consistent passing tourist trade, through convenience. The end goal was to attract and grow a more local market of CBD workers, which would lead to a loyal and repeat customer base.

Buckleys point of difference is their large range of boutique beers in the venue, on tap as well as in bottle, and it was agreed repositioning the venue to a craft beer bar & eatery was ownable as well as unique to that particular busy hub of Circular Quay. It also allowed Engineroom to develop a stronger visual positioning for the Buckleys brand that linked to the heart of the business.
