HAPPY HOURS 25 November to 5 December will be Sydney’s first 11 day hospitality festival since lockdown as 100 local Eastside Sydney businesses offer mouthwatering food and drink deals, alongside delightful community performances and much more!

As the name suggests 5pm to 7pm will be the key timing, but events will be running from dawn till the small hours... wink wink

Sooooo get that glue on your falsies and head to Eastside Sydney - Darlinghurst and Surry Hills and Potts Point - which will play host to an 11 day program of events encouraging Sydney-siders to once again kick up their heels in the area after months living within their 5km radius. Taking place from 25th November until 5th December HAPPY HOURS will host over

HIGHLIGHTS from HAPPY HOURS include bottomless brunches and live music in venues right across the precinct - from jazz musicians, fiddlers and banjo players to cellists and DJs spinning vinyl. Comedy nights and poetry slams will also be featured. Vocal sensation, from The Voice Australia and X Factor UK, Seann Miley Moore will be singing Christmas songs and moonlighting as a life drawing model. His appearance will mark the 1st of December, a day to celebrate the lifting of Sydney’s four square metre rule within hospitality venues and the return of dancing - this means it is sure to be one of the most celebratory nights of this year’s event.
