James Squire was a convict. He was also Australia's first brewer. While the man might have been responsible for an unknown crime, he was responsible for some good beer, too. And, many years on, his name adorns brewhouses all over the country. The Squire's Landing in Circular Quay is one of them: a two-storey restaurant and brewhouse with a microbrewery in residence, home to stunning panoramic views of Sydney Harbour.
The venue will be capitalising on this come New Year's Eve. With front row seats for the fireworks display, there's a couple of different options for punters looking for a party on December 31. You can opt to spend the night in the exclusive Tower Room, with access to the Harbour Deck for the 9pm and 12am fireworks. With its floor-to-ceiling windows, it'll be serving you up a big dose of gobsmacking views, and the restaurant will serve you a five-course sharing menu and a drink on arrival. All this will set you back a cool $1000 but hey, it's New Year's — worry about your bank account next year.
Or, you can head to the restaurant and make use of one of its long tables if you've got a big group with you. You'll also get to cop the fireworks from the Harbour Deck, and dine on the same five-course meal and drink, for the marginally lower $900. The menu features a luxe selection of bites including oysters, lobster and coffee-cured smoked duck. If you want to dial things back just a tad, you can head out into the Forecourt for $450 per person, which includes canapés from 6pm until 2am plus a drink on arrival.
Three options to steer your night into smooth sailing party waters: James Squire was a man of opportunity.
