Welcome to summer, the unofficial yet official season for oyster happy hours. Sydney is a heavy-hitter when it comes to super fresh seafood and on the shucking-front well, we’re low-key serving up some of the best damn oysters around.
Here are all the best places in Sydney for an oyster happy hour.
The Morrison | CBD
The bad boys here are going for $1.50 a pop with The Morrison giving us cheap-as oysters every Wednesday night.
When: Every Wednesday 6-7pm
The Roosevelt | Potts Point
Champagne and oysters. That’s an iconic duo we’ll never get over. Every Thursday, the legends over at The Roosevelt are offering 20% off sparkling wine and whisky along with dollar oysters.
When: Every Thursday, 5-12am
Eau de Vie | Darlinghurst
Our favourite underground speakeasy in Darlinghurst is bringing us $1 oyster Thursdays until these shuckers sell out. In other words, get there on the dot.
When: Every Thursday from 6pm
Riley St Garage | Woolloomooloo
These guys are just your pit stop for a round of $1 oysters six days a week. Choose from the classic Natural Sydney Rocks Oysters or step it up with their Smokey Soy Truffle Oysters. Grab yourself a $5 beer on tap and watch the start of the sunset.
When: Monday to Saturday 5-6pm
Bellevue Hotel | Paddington
You can get a dozen oysters at Bellevue Hotel for $15 which means you’ll need to round up the troops for this mission. Pair these bad boys with some champers or gin for $6 so you can kick off the weekend early.
When: Every Thursday, 6-8pm
And here's your complete food guide to eating and drinking around Lane Cove.
