With the end of daylight savings time fast approaching, now's the time to make the most of our extended sunshine hours. Slipping into the calendar just before the change is A 2021 Night Out, a one-night-only event celebrating the best of Paddington (postcode: 2021), in the year 2021 (see what they did there?).
On Thursday, March 25, the streets of Paddington will come to life as over 100 local businesses in the area host an evening of fashion, food and festivities. There'll be happenings at sites in the main zones of Oxford Street, Five Ways, The Intersection and William Street. A 2021 Night Out is a partnership between Woollahra Council, City of Sydney Council and Visit Paddington.
It's no secret that Paddington is home to some of the best hospo venues in town, so be sure to come hungry. Whet the appetite at subterranean cocktail den Charlie Parker's, which will debut two brand-new, Paddington-inspired cocktails on the night. Both drinks will showcase Paddo-based spirits company Buckley's Rye Whisky: Buckley's Rye 'n' Dry is a refreshing highball topped with house ginger soda, while Banana Buckley's is an intriguing mix of rye, banana mead and Pedro Ximénez.
Kick on down the street at Italian Bar, which will be putting on a pizza party (sidebar: why isn't every party a pizza party?). Come for the $30 pizza degustation and stay for the vibes, with a free house drink and live DJ setting the mood.
Cutting the carbs? Glenmore Road stalwarts — and sibling restaurants — Eat Thai and Vino e Cucina will be grilling up a storm. Eat Thai will be putting on a Thai barbecue for the night, while Vino will plate up delicious grilled lamb skewers.
End the night with an outdoor barbecue fiesta at the cosy Cafe Fiveways. In addition to its all-day menu, the venue will be offering marinated skewers, salads, wine, cocktails and cold beer, available for both dine-in and takeaway.
