When Sydney was in lockdown earlier this year, having a drink at any bar around town fell into the realm of fantasy. Come December, however, the city's residents will be able to book in for a gin beverage at a very unusual and unique watering hole — at a floating hot air balloon bar.

We hope you like hovering more than 30 metres above Tumbalong Park in Darling Harbour (110 feet, to be exact) and drinking Hendrick's gin, because that's the exact combination on offer. The hot air balloon bar has been dubbed 'Hendrick's Gin Most Unusual Balloon Bar', after all, and it's designed to promote the spirits brand. Still, it looks set to serve up a bucket list-level experience.

Block out a window of time between 3–9pm on Saturday, December 5 in your diary, because that's when you'll be able to take to the sky — if you can nab a ticket, that is. To score yourself a spot, you'll need to head online from 9am on Monday, November 30. It's first come, first served, obviously.

Tickets are free — which'll get you quite the lofty view, as well as some gin to sip. There'll also be hampers of Hendrick's-themed goodies onboard, which will pay homage to the cucumbers that the brand loves and constantly recommends pairing with your beverage.

Hendrick's Gin Most Unusual Balloon Bar will hit the skies above Tumbalong Park in Darling Harbour from 3–9pm on Saturday, December 5. To book a ticket, you'll need to head online from 9am on Monday, November 30.
