Warmer weather means sunny afternoons soaking up some rays with a refreshing beverage in hand. Long weekends too. All of the above combines at Opera Bar Sydney's newest event, aka the ideal way to spend three days off — plus the Friday evening before the fun really begins.
From September 29 until October 2, the watering hole with a watery view will be thinking and drinking pink thanks to the Rosé All Day Festival. They'll also be encouraging patrons to wear their favourite hue, be it carnation, cerise, fuchsia, magenta or ruby, and handing out floral crowns to the first 50 guests each day.
Drinks-wise, expect the wine of the moment, including frosé, rosé cocktails, rosé spritz, still and sparkling, with varieties such as Yangarra Pet Nat Sparkling, Craggy Range Rosé, AIX Rosé and Pink Claw Grenache Rosé on offer. The Opera Bar's Meat & Cheese Room will even become the Rosé Room for the occasion, while live music will provide a cheery, chilled-out soundtrack. Tickets cost $35 + booking fee in advance or $40 on the day, and include three rosé tipples of your choice. Further plonk, plus platters of oysters and cheese, will also be available to purchase.
