The Morrison Oyster Festival 2020
$1.50 oyster happy hour, every single day.
September 29, 2020
As any Sydney seafood aficionado should know by now, The Morrison has a constant focus on the not-so-humble oyster. But when the month-long Oyster Festival takes over, that focus turns into an overwhelming obsession.
From Thursday, October 1 through to Saturday, October 31, the Sydney bar will become a shucking shrine to the freshest oysters around. And one of the major drawcards is Oyster Hour. Between 6pm and 7pm every single day, you'll be able to eat as many oysters as you can handle at just $1.50 a pop.
Throughout the month, Chef Sean Connolly will be conjuring up his favourite oyster dishes, including the Million Dollar Oyster topped with snow crab meat and caviar, fried chicken po' boys with oyster mayo and a oysters served with the likes of fermented chilli XO sauce and Tanqueray gin and tonic.
Plus, there'll be oysters paired with bottomless bevs on weekends during the month. Rock up on Saturday and Sunday and you can down a dozen oysters with two hours of bottomless bubbles for just $55 a head. Or you can upgrade your bubbles to GH Mumm for $155 a pop. Bookings are recommended for this.
Also on the menu at this year's slightly delayed festival (it's usually held in August, but COVID-19) is the oyster and wine flight option — with three oysters and three wines — for $25 a person.
