Down the quiet lanes of unassuming Alberta Street in Surry Hills, the exceptional Alberto's Lounge welcomes diners in via a narrow door beneath a neon glow. The intimate venue is staffed by warm knowledgeable staff who'll take you to Italian streets with plates of house-made ricotta, seasonal pastas and perfected mains.

On Sundays the vibes are taken higher with Tempo della Musica, where guests are accompanied by a talented muso to serenade you as you dine. And in celebration of Vivid Sydney, the team is taking it up a notch with Gusta della Musica.

For three Sundays of Vivid, the Alberto's team has designed a special food and drink menu to pair with the evening's tunes, supplied by vinyl-only DJs. On Sunday, June 4, it'll be Dan Lupica's Afro Groove and on Sunday, June 11, Italo-disco will fill the seductive space courtesy of Marco Vella.

These Sundays in the Lounge are a fan fave, so the special editions are sure to sell out. Bookings are essential, so grab a table quick if you're considering it.

Hollywood Quarter's Alberto's Lounge will be hosting Gusta della Musica on Sundays throughout Vivid Sydney 2023. To secure your spot, head to the website.
