Feliz St Patrick’s Day: Veja onde comemorar em Sydney!

postado por Younger Intercâmbio

Having trouble finding the best place for those celebratory pints of Guinness and Irish folk tunes? Pick your pub for 17 March with the help of our guide to Sydney’s Irish bars.

PJ O’Brien’s

You’ll find PJ’s inside the beautiful old Grace hotel complex. They’re putting on a special 7am St Patrick’s Day feed with a hot Irish breakfast (the real thing, with black pudding and fried eggs) and a pint of Guinness or glass of wine. Did you know that in Ireland, Guinness is still made available to blood donors and stomach and intestinal post-operative patients as it’s known to be high in iron content? 57 King St, Sydney 2000. (02 9290 1811).

The Mercantile

Take in Monday morning on St Pat’s for the all-day breakfast and stay into the evenings and craic (geddit?) some floorboards dancing to the bush and Irish bands that’ll be playing all day. These guys aren’t so much about wearing their county on their sleeve in terms of décor, but the place is constantly packed with Irish people and the big all-wood bar is a stunner. 25–27 George St, Sydney 2000. (02 9247 3570).

Durty Nelly’s

Built to accommodate the ranks from the Victoria barracks, it’s been going since 1854. Another great one for trad Irish music, folks come from all over the shop with their fiddles, guitars, and tin whistles to play here and Sunday afternoons are the time to see it happen. They’ve got a great selection of beers on tap – Guinness (duh), Kronenbourg and Kilkenny to name a few – as well as bottled Magners cider and Irish soft drinks. 9-11 Glenmore Rd, Paddington 2021. (02 9360 4467).

PJ Gallagher’s

Though the main view is onto Victoria Road, there’s enough going on inside to keep you distracted. Prop up the rosewood bar with a pint or sink back with a single malt whisky. This St Pat’s kicks of with a roving fiddler, Irish dancing galore and $5.50 pints of Guinness all day. 195 Victoria Rd, Drummoyne 2047. (02 9181 1229).

Scruffy Murphy’s

There’ll be traditional Irish music on all day at the Scruffs this St Pat’s. Join the backpackers of Sydney for a jig and a pint at this infamous city pub. 43–49 Goulburn St, Sydney 2000. (02 9211 2002).

The Mean Fiddler

Who says there’s no such thing as a free lunch? Rouse Hill Irish pub, The Mean Fiddler will be offering St Paddy’s Day revellers a complimentary meal of sausages, bacon, eggs, tomatoes and toast with each purchase of an Irish coffee or Guinness. And just to get you in the celebratory mood, finish off the breakky with some green bubbly, champagne with Midori. Cnr Commercial and Windsor Rd, Rouse HIll, 2155 (02 9629 4811).

O’Malley’s Hotel

Soak up some of the Guinness and cider with a free Irish BBQ of pork sausages and irish pudding at O’Malley’s in Kings Cross. Good place to head to after the parade with free live music from 4pm. 228 William St, Woolloomooloo, 2011 (02 9357 2211).

Kelly’s on King

Head to Kelly’s On King after the parade for twelve hours of live music, a special Irish cafe menu and free giveaways. Starts from 12 noon. 285 King St, Newtown, 2042 (02 9565 2288).

St Patrick’s Day Parade

If the Mardi Gras parade wasn’t quite enough, join the Irish culture enthusiasts in the annual St Patrick’s Day Parade on Sunday 20 Mar. Finally an excuse to wear that fluro green outfit. Catch the parade from 12 noon on the corner of Bathurst and George Streets, Sydney. Sun 20 Mar

Greenhouse Sydney: é possível ser “verde” numa grande cidade

Opening Times

Mon-Sat 7am-12 midnight; Sun 10am-10pm

At

Campbells Cove

Address

The Rocks

Sydney, 2000

“Some people in the building industry regard it as possibly the greenest building on Earth,” says architect Joost Bakker. “Because it’s been considered on so many levels, it probably is.”

Bakker is the Dutch-born, Victoria-based designer of Greenhouse Sydney, the pop-up bar and restaurant that is about to open on the harbour, opposite the Opera House and in front of Quay restaurant, for eight weeks. The project is designed to demonstrate a range of sustainable urban practises in as visible a location as possible.

The venue is constructed from 100 per cent recycled or sustainable materials. A rooftop garden grows vegetables and herbs that are served in the restaurant downstairs. Only local or sustainable produce go into the food and drinks menus and the venue is rubbish-bin free – only waste that can be composted is allowed onto the site.

“The walls are made from locally sourced plywood,” explains Joost (pronounced Yoast). “The skeleton is recyclable 1.2mm steel and there are straw bales in the walls, ceiling and floor. I’ve made the furniture out of aluminium irrigation pipes, the tables are old billboards from the Rocks, and there’s lots and lots of details, like old Little Creatures beer bottles that we’ve used to make beer glasses.”

Following on from Greenhouse venues in Melbourne and Perth, the project is the brainchild of Joost and Melbourne restaurateur Jason Chan. The restaurant will seat 90 people while the rooftop bar can accommodate a further 100 patrons; Chan anticipates serving around 1,000 meals a day. Menu staples including breads, pastries, pizza, yoghurt, butter and tonic water will all be made on site.

Chan, who is taking Greenhouse to Milan, Berlin, Budapest and London, says that he has local restaurateur Neil Perry to thank for the project’s Sydney stint. “Neil was quoted saying it was such a shame Sydney was not getting [Greenhouse] before it went away overseas. Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority heard about our plight and really came to the party.” The NSW government have ponied up $300,000 to make the project possible. “When the Foreshore Authority offered us the site I was speechless – it has one of the most famous views in the world,” says Joost.

In keeping with the theme of ‘locally made’ the venue will showcase Australian spirits including the Tradewinds Gin from WA, 666 Vodka from Tasmania, Bakery Hill Whiskey from Victoria, and Holey Dollar Rum from Queensland. Beers are Stone and Wood (NSW) and Little Creatures (WA) while wines are by Foster e Rocco (Vic) and the Natural Selection Theory (NSW).

CarnivArgyle: carnaval em Sydney!!

terça-feira, 1 de março de 2011 - 16:03
postado por Younger Intercâmbio

Sydney will get all the excitement of Rio throughout the month of March with CarnivArgyle at the Argyle from 1–31 March.

Because the one-night event in 2010 was a big success, the Argyle has decided to make March a month-long celebration of all things Latin American, from food, to dance, to drinks.

One of Sydney’s famous larger bars, the Argyle and its renowned cobblestone courtyard will be transformed into a ‘little Latin America’. Guests will be able to soak up plenty of atmosphere and excitement for free during the same month as Carnivale in Rio.

Entertainment throughout the month will include dance and drumming shows, live musical acts, Latin-accented DJ sessions, as well as interactive samba classes and tequila tastings each week. The action will reach its peak with a launch celebration on 11 March, when the party will continue late into the night.

Food will also be a huge feature of the month, bringing the tastes of Brazil, Argentina and more to Sydney food-lovers every Thursday evening.

A BBQ will take pride of place in the courtyard with churrasco specialties including meat skewers with chimichurri and Brazil’s national dish feijoada. There will also be a special churros stand, serving the Spanish ‘donuts’ with rich chocolate sauce.

On Friday and Saturday nights, a late night BBQ will serve up more-ish chorizo ‘hot dogs’ with jalapeño salsa.

In contemporary tapas restaurant Argyle Bazar, renowned chef Miguel Maestre and the team have added Latin American themed specials to the menu including ‘DIY’ ceviche with prawn and kingfish, Creole chicken wings, pan fried morcilla and banana fritters with caramel sauce.

KEY CARNIVARGYLE EVENTS IN MARCH:

Tuesday 1 March 1: A Latin Affair

Argyle Bazar will kick off the festival with a Chilean and Argentinean themed evening with matching wines and hosted by winemakers to help food-lovers explore the regions.

Friday 11 March 11: CarnivArgyle Festival Party

CarnivArgyle’s night of nights is Friday 11 March with a Carnivale-style wild, rocking party. Renowned dancer/drummers from Rhythm Brazil and Brazilian capoeira entertainers will get the party started, while food stalls will provide sustenance for plenty of dancing throughout the night. Premium tequila and rum will be available to sample and some of Sydney’s best DJs will inject some Latin beats late into the night.

Valentine’s Day: Melhores bares em Sydney para o primeiro encontro

segunda-feira, 14 de fevereiro de 2011 - 16:02
postado por Younger Intercâmbio

Bennelong Bar, Sydney Opera House

Ambience There’s really nothing like sitting beneath the sails of Jørn Utzon’s Opera House, sinking back in curved chocolate seats with a glass of wine and taking in the view.

What to order Award-winning sommelier John Clancy’s wine list runs the gamut from the Barossa to Bordeaux and everywhere vine-worthy in between. The crab sandwiches are essential.

In the know There’s not a bad seat in the house – every plush seat has killer views of Sydney Harbour – but it’s best at sunset.

——————————————————————————–

Shore Club, Manly

Ambience The roof at Shore Club peels down to show the beachfront and let in the breeze.

What to order Order the Pimms cup to share. Trust us.

In the know Head right up to the roof for a private tent.

——————————————————————————–

Zeta Bar, Hilton Sydney

Ambience Head bartender Grant Collins and company can make you anything you care to name. The space is sophisticated with dark nooks, squishy banquettes and a long, polished bar. And if it’s a bit of fresh air you’re in need of, there’s a huge balcony looking over the QVB.

What to order Try a ‘sensory experience’ cocktail – fun, 10-minute experiences that involve being blindfolded and played music from an iPod. The ‘Tiki’ involves being sprayed with coconut scent and drinking out of a huge pineapple.

In the know The lounges out the back are a great place to hide if you’ve had one too many Manhattans (or the date is going especially well… ).

——————————————————————————–

In Situ, Manly

Ambience You can’t beat it for vibe and it has excellent cocktails. It’s a cool, breezy courtyard café by day, and an atmospheric, classy, candle-lit cocktail lounge by night.

What to order They do a fantastic Cuba Libre but if beer’s your friend, they have a good selection as well as a modest wine list.

In the know There’s a happy hour each evening as well as regular live music.

——————————————————————————–

Aperitif, Kings Cross

Ambience It’s a cosy old terrace in the heart of the Cross with one of the city’s best wine lists.

What to order The wine list is incredible and there’s also a tapas menu offering share plates – perfect with a Martini or beer, too, if you’re not a lover of all things wine related.

In the know Sit out in the courtyard under the arms of the ancient fig tree or nab a lounge right down the back. Romantic.

——————————————————————————–

Ash Street Cellar, Ivy Sydney

Ambience Because the space is reliant on outdoor seating, diners light up left, right and centre, which can be off putting if you’re not a smoker. But hey, it’s all part of the European bar experience – breathe in the atmosphere.

What to order There’s an impressively large Champagne list as well as a great selection by the glass, bottle and carafe – perfect with Lauren Murdoch’s excellent tapas menu.

In the know Demonstrate your savoir faire by heading to Ash Street via Angel Place, thus avoiding having to queue for Ivy proper.

——————————————————————————–

Café Lounge, Darlinghurst

Ambience The 70s couches, Tretchikoff prints and multi-coloured lantern lighting gives it the ‘I wish this was my local’ vibe and the food and drinks are designed to make you feel at home.

What to order A small but reliable selection of wine turns up a few gems and the beer selection is a who’s who of trendy Surry Hills favourites including Little Creatures and Coopers Pale Ale.

In the know Look out for rotating house specials and DJs.

——————————————————————————–

Different Drummer, Glebe

Ambience A favourite with Glebe’s glitterati, it’s packed three deep at all times and has a working model train that makes its way around the room. Really.

What to order Their sangria is a signature but they also feature a selection of local and imported beers. Try one of the classic cocktails off their recently re-worked list.

In the know Pitch a pozzy out the back in the enclosed garden or brave the throng in the dark pockets of the main bar. There are two-for-one drinks between 6 and 7.30pm, and the bar stays kicking until 2am.

——————————————————————————–

Lotus, Potts Point

Ambience From Florence Broadhurst wallpaper, teardrop chandeliers and backlit resin bar, to drinks straight up, neat or perfect, this place is all class.

What to order The polished and professional bar staff here would rather have you trying something new (or classic) rather than reverting to Lychee Martinis and Midori Splices. There’s also an exceptional wine list, if cocktails aren’t for you.

In the know Arrive earlier in the evening and sit at the bar for maximum cocktail love. The restaurant serves great food, too. Order the roast chicken for two, if it’s on.

——————————————————————————–

Shop and Wine bar, Bondi

Ambience It’s Barbie-Dream-Home-small with a handful of tables and chairs inside and out. It’s also nice to be able to visit a bar in Bondi that isn’t just churning through the punters and the drinks.

What to order The wines on the list aren’t the most exciting in Sydney but they’re reasonably priced and they have half bottles – which is extra cool. They also claim to make “possibly the best Bloody Mary ever!”).

In the know They offer a ‘mystery wine’ on the menu. Fun.
