Heated outdoor spaces are a hot commodity during winter. They offer a rare occasion to enjoy some fresh air without freezing your butt off. Luckily, The Grounds of Alexandria has you sorted. Sounds from The Grounds — a series of after-dark music events held in their fairy-lit Alexandria garden — returns this winter to tempt Sydneysiders outdoors, and the next instalment is Latin-themed.
If you missed tickets to previous sold-out events, the salsa night will return on Thursday, July 26 and August 23. Bundle up and arrive from 6pm to enjoy a glass (or two) of sangria in the heated garden. Latin band Los Papis will play at 6.30pm, 8pm and 8.50pm with a salsa performance at 7.30pm — dancing is encouraged.
The $30 ticket price includes entry, music and the performance, with food and drinks available to purchase from the kitchen's South American-inspired menu. Think comfort-food favourites like arepas, quesadillas and tacos, plus the aforementioned sangria by-the-glass.
If you want to bring your furry friend along, dogs (and kids under 12) are welcome and get in for free, too.
