Five Awesome Things To Do In Sydney This Week

By Frances Magiera - 10 Jul 2017


This week in Sydney it’s all about getting fancy. From a six-course Italian degustation with complimentary wine (not-so-dry July), to a Michelin star dining experience, here are five awesome things to do in Sydney this week. 

Monday 10 July

Hot Tub Time Machine @ The Hot Tub Cinema

What better way to stay warm at an outdoor cinema in winter than from a pool of hot water?! We’ve had Hot Dub Time Machine (aka the dubstep DJ). We’ve had the Hot Dub Wine Machine music festival. But this, this is THE original Hot Tub Time Machine movie, enjoyed from a real life hot tub, at the (surely you’re following this now?) Hot Tub Cinema. Hell to the yes. Float in a giant blow-up tub whilst watching the movie that put ‘hot tub’ in our vocab forever and even better, you can do it with a drink in hand too. Book the whole tub for you and your mates, or go it solo and hop in a tub with strangers (nothing says making new friends like sharing bath water).

Where: The Newmarket Hotel
When: Monday 10 July
Cost: book tickets here

Tuesday 11 July

Drake Eatery Duck & Pinot Nights

Name a better duo than duck and Pinot Noir. We’ll wait. If you missed Drake Eatery’s pinot and duck deal last month, don’t panic. Or do panic, because you missed duck and pistachio sausage wrapped in savoy cabbage, paired with smoked potato. Thankfully, they’re extending it for July, and boy is there a mouthwatering lineup of duck dishes on offer. This Tuesday, Drake Eatery will be serving up the honey glazed roast duck maryland, with burnt mandarin and braised fennel, paired with a glass of Yarra Peaks Pinot Noir. Grab your appetite and get quacking (we couldn’t help ourselves).

Where: Drake Bondi
When: Tuesday 11 July
Cost: $35

Jamila Rizvi & Wendy Harmer On Confidence

ICYMI confidence on anyone is damn attractive, but what happens if you don’t have the confidence to own your success? This candid conversation from Jamila Rizvi and Wendy Harmer is all about life, success, and how to overcome the challenges in our 2017 work lives (#deep). Rizvi and Harmer are here to help, and here’s hoping we all leave confident AF. Come for the LOLs, advice and hopefully those answers you’re looking for.

Four Hands International Chef Collaboration 

The Private Kitchen in Chippendale’s foodie mecca of Kensington Street is gearing up to host the Four Hands International Chef Collaboration, bringing some of the world’s best international chefs to Sydney bellies. As the name suggests, the Private Kitchen is normally reserved for private events only, so this one’s going to be super fun. Wednesday night you’ll feast on the delicious creations by Chef Seita Nakahara, from Singapore’s Michelin star restaurant Terra, and Kensington Street’s very own Lino Saura, from Olio. The six-course menu will bring together the best of Italian-inspired cuisine to create one seriously luxe dining experience.

When: Wednesday 12 July
Cost: $120pp dinner only, $175pp with paired wine 

Not So Dry July At Casoni

It may be Dry July, but we can make an exception for red wine. Especially when it’s a complimentary bottle of Sangiovese from our faves at Casoni. This place does Negroni on tap, traditional Italian pasta, and a killer cheeseboard. If that isn’t enough motivation to get you out of your winter hibernation, Casoni is offering a free bottle of Sangiovese wine when you and your gang opt for the Menu Fisso, which features all the signature Casoni dishes. Start with the burnt butter and sage pumpkin ravioli, then move to the lamb shank ragu, and finish off the six-course feast with the lemon curd and raspberry vanilla custard. We’re drooling already. 

Where: Casoni
When: Wednesday 12 July
Cost: $55pp for Menu Fisso
