This Darlinghurst pasta and wine staple is lovingly serving up not one, but two, huge happy hours everyday — with $4 bar snacks and $9 glasses of mystery wine.

What's better than one happy hour? How about two? That's exactly what the Paski Vineria Popolare crew is offering up daily. And with Paski's close proximity to Darlinghurst Theatre Company and Oxford Art Factory, this is the perfect opportunity to grab dinner and a drink pre- or post-theatre shows and gigs.

Head into the downstairs bar from Monday, September 4 and you'll stumble upon a set of exciting deals curated by Paski's chef Enrico Tomelleri and the Oxford Street pasta and wine joint's co-owners Giorgio De Maria and Mattia Dicati.

But what exactly is on offer? Well, there are two options available. From 5–6:30pm, the Salatino happy hour reigns supreme, celebrating salty, crunchy Italian pastry snacks. Take your pick from $4 pesto-layered pastries and umami-forward anchovies and mortadella — or enjoy a mix for $10.

Alongside the snacks, you'll find a selection of affordable drink deals that pair perfectly with the snacks on offer — like Paski's vermouth of the week for $10, a $12 glass of sparkling wine or an exclusive sake cocktail collaboration with Newtown's Ante called A Sicilian in Tokyo Fizz, on offer for $14.

The second option, the Aglio e Olio late-night happy hour, will feature its namesake pasta from 9–11pm. The pasta is available for $15 and can be paired with an Amaro Rubino Sour ($10) or a mystery glass of wine hand-selected by the Paski team ($9). Plus, you can end your night with a scooping of tiramisu for just $8.

The happy hours were inspired by the Italian tradition where guests are served a savoury snack alongside paired sips during the early evening before they proceed to cook a hearty pasta dish to curb those late-night cravings.
