Is there a better way to spend a weekend than sipping a margarita harbourside with stunning panoramic views of two of the most iconic landmarks in the world? If this sounds like an ideal way to while away a few hours, Opera Bar is serving up exactly that, with a four-day celebration of everyone's favourite tequila cocktail.

The Marg Fest will take place between Thursday, March 23—Sunday, March 26. Four playful iterations of the humble margarita will be rolled out as part of the festival, ranging from down-the-line classics to inventive interpretations using Patron Silver as the hero spirit. Take your pick between the classic Tommy's Margarita, two frozen margs — a guava variety and a spicy habanero version — and a boozy flip of a summer classic with the margarita soft serve.

Tickets for the festival will set you back $45, which includes three complimentary cocktails of your choice, plus access to the dedicated margarita bar. There will also be roaming entertainment, a glitter squad and DJs throughout the weekend, as well as a Marg Fest food lineup featuring fish tacos, corn ribs and pulled pork quesadillas.

If you're heading on Thursday, the festival kicks off at 4pm. Throughout the rest of the weekend, the bar will be pumping from 11am until late. You can secure your ticket by pre-purchasing it from the Opera Bar website.
