Friday Evening at The Port
A new waterfront venue in Darling Harbour called The Port has opened up and we are absolutely loving it. The Port has always been set to make waves, exuding a chic, French coastal vibe that instantaneously transports you to a summer oasis. The stunning water views and harbour front cabanas with cocktail in hand makes The Port the perfect meeting spot to go to with your besties. There is an array of cocktails and an amazing seafood sharing platter that we definitely suggest you try.

Saturday Morning Breakfast at Flower Child Cafe
This special little café brings a little outdoors vibe right inside!
Eat under a sky of ferns as this greenhouse-like café truly plays on the garden theme with hanging pot plants from the ceiling and a planted feature wall to look out to.
We advise that you spoil your sweet tooth with their mouth-watering French Toast – banana mascarpone, sliced banana, dark chocolate crumb, baked pecans, fresh berries and salted toffee and caramel syrup – trust us when we say it’s amazing and incredibly instagrammable (and deliciously decorated with some edible flowers of course!) Oh and to make it just that little bit better they have The Grounds Coffee as well!

Saturday Dinner at Flour Eggs Water
The most divine, authentic Italian restaurant in Sydney which truly celebrates the art and craft of pasta and all things Italian. Flour Eggs Water – as easy as three simple ingredients which when combined can be transformed into one of life’s most satisfying pleasures – pasta. Enjoy a bowl (or two!), some carefully selected Italian wine and to finish the cremino dessert – it the best way one can end a meal (you will only regret it, if you don’t get one!).

Saturday Evening at The Langham
Just off a quaint cobbled street in the heart of The Rocks, stands the most opulent and exquisite hotel Sydney has to offer and our personal favourite. The Langham radiates sophistication and elegance since the moment you step foot inside. Each room is luxuriously appointed with bespoke furnishings, soft panelled walls, high ceilings, unique artworks that accentuate upon the feel of the room complimenting the Parisian-styled shutters. If the rooms weren’t enticing enough The Langham also has one the most serene underground spa sanctuary to help you renew and rejuvenate. It also has a stunning swimming pool with pale stone columns and a star-dappled sky ceiling. The Langham is the ultimate, inviting hotel that will delight and indulge all the senses.

Sunday Drinks at Henry Deane at Hotel Palisade
Henry Deane is Sydney’s current hotspot, the contemporary cocktail lounge offering stunning scenes of Sydney whichever way you look. The deep and ever so comfy lounges make it quite easy to sit back, beverage in hand and enjoy the view with a few of your closest friends.
We strongly suggest you try these two cocktails – Coconut and Pandan Daiquiri (Coconut Havana 3yr with pandan, lime and salter sugar) and the Hotel Georgia (Plymouth with orgeat, lemon, orange blossom water, egg white and nutmeg).
