Moore: Small bars make us civilised

Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore said laws recently passed to encourage smaller bars in Sydney should also generate a "more civilised drinking regime".

"(The problem) is large venues, it is concentration of young people who have drunk too much alcohol and it is an issue that we need to be very proactive about," she said.

"I'm hoping when the new liquor legislation comes into force ... then we might see a more civilised drinking regime of smaller venues."

Sydney's small bars legislation is based on Melbourne's licensing legislation.
