Now that winter has well and truly kicked in and all we want to do is stay inside until the sun comes out, we have found some great things to do in Sydney that will allow you to do just that.
We’ve got cocktail workshops, degustations, winter-themed drinks, and plenty of Negronis to keep you warm. Let’s get this week started!
Negroni Week Begins!
Are you obsessed with negronis as much as we are? If you answered “hell yes” to that question then you’ll probably already know about Negroni Week which is kicking off today. On this glorious week, drinking a negroni at one of the many participating venues (including The Clock Hotel, Mojo Record Bar and Casoni) will not only be delicious, it will also be supporting local charities. For the list of bars in Sydney participating, head here.
