The new decade is almost here, which means you’re probably like us and already behind in planning 2020’s escapades. But never fear, because we’ve teamed up with The Star Sydney to make sure you start the new year off on the right foot.

And—in even better news—because 2019 was a big one, BLACK Bar & Grill, Sokyo and Flying Fish are serving up a pretty sweet deal to ensure you send off the year with a bang. If you gather up five or more of your mates, head to either restaurant and spend over $450, you’ll receive a free bottle of Moët & Chandon Brut Impérial to help you celebrate—you don’t have to ask us twice.

Be Boujee

There’s no denying any good New Year’s Eve plan revolves around a feast of epic proportions, so make sure your last meal of 2019 is a memorable one at BLACK Bar & Grill. Serving up some of their most inspired dishes from the grill and charcoal oven, you can indulge in Sydney rock oysters with smoked cream, pickled cucumber and caviar for $12 each and wash it all down with a bottle of champagne from their extensive champagne menu. Classy much? 

If you’re still in search for more, you can snap up Black Lip Abalone from the charcoal grill, with seaweed butter and lemon for $68, A5 110g Japanese Wagyu striploin from the wood grill with charred onion and shiraz jus for $160 or the WA Marron from the mibrasa oven with garlic and herb butter for $72. Because if there’s any time to ball out, it’s New Year’s Eve, right?
