The tropical vibes are always strong at King Street Wharf's Bungalow 8, but its latest offering has taken things up another notch. The part bar, par nightclub is now serving up bottomless sorbet cocktails. Held upstairs in The Loft every Saturday and Sunday lunchtime, the 2.5-hour sessions of unlimited cocktails — served with matching grazing plates — will help you forget that summer is over for another year.
For $79 per person, you get endless access to three lush cocktails: the Italian-inspired Sgroppino with vodka, prosecco and lime sorbet; the pink-tinged Istanbul Rose, which is the same as the latter but with rose syrup; and the Coconut Kiss — a strong blend of Tanqueray gin, white crème de cacao, lemon juice, coconut sorbet and tart lemon curd.
To help line your stomach throughout this rousing session, the bar will ply you with a heap of tasty morsels (and by heap, we mean a serious amount of food). There's an antipasto board — piled high with cured meats, cheese, figs and bread — vegetarian rice paper rolls, a honey-spiked mountain of fried prawns and a moreish dip platter.
Head to The Loft website to reserve your spot at a Sorbet Sessions and to make those tropical island (and bottomless cocktail) daydreams a reality.
