As we inch ever closer to the 20s of the modern day, take a step back to last century's roaring era of swinging jazz, flapper dresses and underground drinking dens. Hatted CBD restaurant, Silvester's, is throwing a Gatsby-themed party with all the glitz and glamour of the roaring twenties.
The cocktail party is an ode to the Silvester Brothers: one of Sydney's finest butchers and providores that operated in the 1920s in the same spot where you'll now find the fine diner. Expect over-the-top culinary treats, including a massive chocolate centrepiece, plus a flowing wine fountain at the centre of it all.
As it's a stand up do, you'll be feasting on canapés, small treats and some Silvester's signature dishes, with different food offerings set up throughout the grand space.
Wander through the (fabulously dressed) crowd and start at the caviar bar, then head to the oyster bar or the crudo bar with kingfish, snapper and tuna on offer. You'll also find charcuterie, a parmesan cheese wheel gnocchi stall, and an open kitchen-cum-butcher serving duck and hollandaise trout, plus carving beef to order. For dessert, you can either feast on liquid nitrogen desserts or get creative at the interactive pastry lab.
On the drinks front there'll be a roaming tray service of fine Australian wines and aperitifs. The soiree will be swinging, too, with a live jazz band performing prohibition-era favourites.
The dress code is 'Gatsby and chic', so think dapper suits, beaded dresses with tassels, feather hairpieces and long strings of pearls.
