Welcome to Happy Hours opening on Thursday 25 November and running until Sunday 5 December.
A celebration of all good things in our neighbourhood. After the year that we’d all rather forget and a Sydney lock-down that seemed to go on and on, we figured that now was the time to support our local hospitality venues as they throw open their doors once more.
From coffee to cocktails, fine dining to gelato, beer gardens or rooftops – Eastside Sydney has a food scene that’s second to none. This is the time to show your support for your favourite barista, or pizzeria, or wine bar.
Drop into your local for a long lunch, a fancy dinner or a quick bevy at Happy Hours time.
It’s been a tough year and they’d love to see your face.
Performers also did it tough, so we decided to help out by programming performance in small venues across Eastside. Jazz, classical, pop and country. Fiddlers, banjo players and cabaret – we’ve got it all covered.
As well, there’s queer comedy, life drawing and our beloved drag queens are back once more to preside over bingo and bottomless brunches.
Eastside Sydney spans Surry Hills, Darlinghurst and Potts Point and this event is brought to you by those local business chambers, with funding support by the City of Sydney.
All of our participants are COVID compliant, so you may be asked to make a reservation, book in small groups, and be aware of reduced venue capacity. We’re all pretty up to speed with check-in and vac passports by now. Rest assured that the safety and well-being of local business, guests and our wider community is always on our mind.
