Sydney just loves a rooftop bar. When the weather's fine, and you want to celebrate making it through another nine-to-five, can you really blame us? Some good news: there's a new lush oasis in town that'll help the workday woes wash away and you'll find it right in the CBD. Tanqueray has taken over Taylor's Rooftop on Pitt Street for one month, filling it with tons of hanging greenery and a gin and tonic bar that's slinging cocktails for only a tenner.
More good news: the gin connoisseurs are throwing a launch party for the new terrace bar and giving away 100 G&Ts — first in, best dressed. It's going down this Thursday, February 7, and you can RSVP here. Be sure to get in close to the 4pm start time to nab your freebie.
Apart from the giveaway, the menu will feature three versions of the Tanqueray gin and tonic — using either London Dry, Flor de Sevilla or Rangpur — at $10 a pop. There's also a premium option with Tanqueray No. TEN ($12) and a spritz ($13) featuring Flor de Sevilla, prosecco and an orange garnish (which you can then recreate at home with this step-by-step guide). Each is served in a Copa de Balon, a glass specifically designed for G&T sipping.
The pop-up will be open every day in February from 11.30am–11pm, with a daily $6 happy hour on offer from 4–6pm, too.
