When the weather's putting on a show and summer's just around the corner, few things trump a party by the beach. And, here at Concrete Playground, we thrive on bringing you the very best of Sydney's cultural happenings. So much so, we decided to get in on the action and partnered up with BATI Fijian Rum by RUM Co. of Fiji, to throw an afternoon of rum cocktails, dance-worthy tunes and stunning water views.
On Saturday, November 16, we took over a luxe location at one of Sydney's most picturesque beaches to celebrate the start of summer. It all went down at Manly Yacht Club, with many opting to cop some sun and cool sea breeze out on the open deck. BATI Fijian Rum brought a touch of Fijian paradise to our Sydney shores, too, decking out the space with lots of leafy palms and, of course, plenty of rum.
Punters drank white rum fijian daiquiris in coconuts while other boozy options included spiced rum nitro espresso martinis and dark and stormys — all made with BATI Rum, naturally. Shared Affair supplied all the food, which included spit-roasted meats, charred fish curry, Fijian bean stew, roti, banana leaves, grilled pineapple and fried cassava chips.
DJs spun bangers all afternoon, with everyone partying as the sun went down.
