Four Seasons Hotel Sydney's cosy whiskey bar Grain is joining forces with Belvedere this Vivid Sydney to transform into a blue, glowing wonderland called Light the Night. Just a minute's walk from Circular Quay, it's the ideal spot to escape the crowds for a warming, top-shelf tipple in front of a fire.
Plus, Grain's bartenders have created a bunch of new Vivid-inspired cocktails to serve up during the month-long celebration, including The Ghost of Mary, a transparent twist on the bloody mary made with Belvedere, house-made tomato consommé and frozen cherry tomatoes instead of ice cubes.
Meanwhile, the hotel's restaurant Mode Kitchen & Bar will be dishing up a three-course Vivid-inspired menu. Settle in to sample head chef Francesco Mannelli's favourite and most-comforting winter creations. Think wood-baked rounds of Italian cheese and Rangers Valley wagyu cheek. Topping off your feast will be a majestic 'glowing' pavlova and free parking (for Mode guests) from Monday to Thursday between 5:30-10pm.
If you're keen to stay over — and lose yourself in the Four Seasons' Sydney Harbour panoramas — then check into one of the luxe harbour view rooms or suites. The hotel is offering a ten percent discount on stays of two nights or longer during Vivid Sydney.
Four Seasons Hotel Sydney's Light the Night experience and restaurant and accommodation specials will run for the duration of Vivid Sydney, from May 25 to June 16. For more information and to make a booking, head to the website.
