Baby Got Brunch
Enjoy a nostalgic Australian barbecue spread and bottomless cocktails over a bangin' 90s soundtrack.
September 20, 2022
CBD bar About Time is all about the idea that nothing lasts forever and good things must come to the end. It opened in late 2021 in a soon-to-be-demolished building in Sydney's CBD. Situated on the corner of Hunter and Bligh Streets, the venue will only be open until the site's demolition later this year to make way for the new Hunter Street metro train station. So it will go out with a literal wrecking ball.
Each Saturday, the bar combines two of Sydney's favourite things, bottomless brunch and 90s/naughties nostalgia with Baby Got Brunch. The weekly party features a selection of the best eats on the About Time menu, free-flowing drinks and hits from the 90s and 00s.
You can enjoy a bangin' barbecue spread over an equally banger-filled soundtrack full of era-defining classics from the likes of Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls, Blink 182 and Salt-N-Pepa.
Your spread of nostalgic snacks will kick off with crudité, French onion dip and Jatz alongside pulled pork croquettes. From there, things will get a bit heftier with slow-cooked pork shoulder served with apple sauce, lamb forequarter with garlic sauce and an array of sides including bread rolls, potato salad and wedge salad. It will really feel like an old-school family gathering minus the paper plates.
Rounding out the meal and offering a fully loaded dose of nostalgia is a serving of Viennetta for dessert. And, there's also a vegetarian version of the brunch on offer.
Drinks-wise, guests will be treated to two hours of bottomless wines, beers and cocktails. On the cocktail menu are coconut and mango margarita slushies, Haku bloody marys, Roku gin creations, Bati watermelon daiquiris and grape and thyme bellinis.
The full experience will set you back $95 per person, or you can opt for a reduced selection of drinks for $20 less.
