Express Lunch At Kensington Street Social
Want a good lunch but running a little short on time? Chippendale fave, Kensington Street Social have you covered.

Learn All About Coffee Cocktails
I think it’s about time we, as a nation, face the truth... we have a little bit of a coffee problem. But we’re totally okay with this. Coffee in the morning to wake you up and a coffee cocktail at night for the perfect top off to the day. Della Hyde, Sydney Cocktail Club and Mr Black Spirits have teamed up to educate us on all things coffee cocktail. You’ll get to watch (and more importantly, taste) a range of both hot and cold coffee cocktails and go through a tasting of coffee liqueurs. This sounds like the perfect night to us.
When: Wednesday, 20th July from 6:30pm
Where: Della Hyde
Cost: $45 per person. Book here.
A Winter Pop-Up At The Pier
Pier One have got all the comforts of winter on the slopes, without all the snow. Chivas Regal is the oldest of the Scottish Highland distilleries and is bringing the warmth of Scotland (or at least the warmth of the whisky) to Sydney. On Thursdays you can pick up a complimentary tasting plate, Fridays will see live music with roaming three minute massage angels and Saturdays and Sundays you’ll find some cool tunes with DJs and live performances. Pop in on the right night and you might even get a Chivas Whisky masterclass or a Mumm Tasting Class. This is one event you have to visit.
