As Sydney's temps continue to drop, venues across the city are finding ways to warm you up. Darlinghurst's East Village is following suit and has transformed its rooftop terrace into a winter wonderland. The fairy light-lit, pink-hued winter garden opens today, Thursday, June 6, offering an inner-city oasis where you can rug up, sip hot cocktails and eat European fare.

The charming surrounds take inspiration from Europe's winter night markets and feature hearty eats from Germany, Switzerland and France. Expect Berlin-style currywurst (bratwurst topped with sauerkraut, fries and curried ketchup gravy); a take on the French coq au vin (wine-braised chicken pie served with mash and smoked rosemary camembert); and a four-cheese fondue, spiked with maraschino liqueur and served with assorted veg, cured meats and bread for dipping.

You can also heat your insides with a spiced mulled wine, warmed mead, mulled cider by Young Henrys or a Tasmanian gin toddy. All of these specialty cocktails are available as two-for-one during daily happy hour from 5–7pm, along with select beer and wine. While entry is free, bookings are recommended.

East Village's Pink Winter Garden is open from 5–11pm, Tuesday through Sunday.
