If your news game has been strong of late, you’ll be well aware of the NSW Government’s recent announcement to drop six million people in NSW a handful of dining vouchers. Yep, if you are over the age of 18, you’ll be dished out four individual $25 tickets as part of the Government’s “Out & About” scheme. The tickets themselves will be sent through the Service NSW app and will roll out as early as January next year.
However, there’s some more news on the horizon that’ll get you really excited. The Sydney Collective, a juggernaut hospitality group you’re no doubt familiar with, has announced it will double Out & About vouchers across all eight of its Sydney venues.
Participating venues include Daniel San in Manly, The Imperial Erskineville, Northie’s in Cronulla, Park House Mona Vale, The Morrison Bar and Oyster Room, The Republic Hotel, Taylor’s Rooftop, and Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel.
“Our industry’s been hit among the hardest in 2020 and we want to support our local communities who have been instrumental in keeping our businesses alive,” The Sydney
Collective CEO, Fraser Short, said in a statement.
“Plus, we want to see people out having a good time again. We’ve all doubled-down during lock-down and now you can double-up supporting your local.”
A trial for the Out & About dining vouchers will take place during December 2020. When the full scheme hits, you can expect vouchers to extend well beyond the food scene with plans to have it covering entertainment venues, cultural institutions, and the arts.
