By the time that Thursday night rolls around each week, most of us are thinking about escaping the nine-to-five grind. There's still one pesky weekday left to go until the weekend, of course, but sinking underground with a glass of red wine in your hand — and with jazz tunes setting the upbeat but relaxing mood — sure does sound enticing.
That's what's on offer at The Walrus Club's Jazz and Shiraz nights. Usually, the Regatta spot turns its cosy, dark space into a whisky haven on Thursday evenings, but for winter, it's opting for red wine instead. The event is a weekly fixture from 8.30pm through the colder months, and will give you something to sip other than the watering hole's hefty array of 300-plus spirits. Prohibition-era bar vibes and lively — and live — music remain, of course.
Entry is free, and reservations aren't required — and you'll have a range of different shiraz drops to choose from.
