Sydney this week has been packed with mysteries, urban legends, art shows, an early morning lunar eclipse and one floating villa to rival your mate's sparkly Sicilian summer.
Here's a bit of what you missed this week in Sydney.
CULTURE IS OVER
On Wednesday night, world-renowned street artist Anthony Lister returned to Kings Cross to open a week-long pop-up exhibition. Hosted within a former strip club, where Lister held a show back in 2009, CULTURE IS OVER centres on a spooky Sydney urban legend and features a tonne of new work from the artist. If you missed the opening night party (wow, the queue to get in was so long, some locals were heard commenting that they "hadn't seen this many people in the Cross for ten years"), fear not—the show is open until Wednesday 24 July. More details are here.
The Mysterious Unicornzilla
In news that's proving to be as mysterious as an actual mythical creature, we got wind of a giant inflatable unicorn popping up in Sydney Harbour to host yacht parties every Saturday throughout summer. We have many unanswered questions here: where will this giant unicorn be in our precious sparkly harbour? Does anyone actually want to swim in Sydney Harbour? Is this floating supersized unicorn even real? We'll keep you updated as this fanciful story evolves.
Once a very exclusive, members-only type affair with hefty monthly fees and a 12-month contract, Lilypad is now available for anyone to book. It's a floating villa, anchored off Palm Beach with a tonne of luxury inclusions, like French champagne, whiskey, breaky from The Boat House and dinner at iconic Whale Beach spot, Barrenjoey House. Check it out here.
A Beachside Wine Room
In major news, Coogee is set to get a beachside wine room, aptly titled: Coogee Wine Room. The wine list is the work of Brooke Adey (of Bea, Chiswick and Yellow), with Mediterranean-inspired food from head chef Sandro Di Marino (A Tavola). Check all the details right here.
