Sunset Style Session X Blessed Days

In July we had the pleasure of welcoming wedding stylist Eve from Blessed Days into our venue as part of our Sunset Style Sessions. Eve decided to style the semi-private dining area, perfect for an intimate dinner or lunch with smaller number of guests.

Eve worked with the neutral tones of our Hamptons, NYC style room with her crisp colour palette, varying textures and fresh florals. Eve also bought the outside in by creating a charming drinks area on the Juliette Balcony where  enjoy a glass of Moet, while taking in the harbour view. This champagne experience station can be added on to any weddings or events packages.

A day filled with bananas, games, singing, dancing and face painting! Our Minions Tea Party was fun for all and a big thank you to everyone who came along.



As part of our school holiday activities, we hosted a banana crazy Minions Tea Party on our amazing Top Deck. Kids showed up rocking their best minion inspired costumes, ready for some fun! Our minion entertainer kept the kids entertained with lots of dancing, games and balloon making, while our minion was there to get photos with the kids.  The kids could also get their face painted by our resident fairy, who also joined in with the fun

There was a variety of delicious Minion treats on offer including banana cupcakes, banana bread, fairy bread, banana milkshakes, fresh banana sticks as well as platters of baked delicious goods. Parents were offered mini sandwiches, fruit platters and other healthy snacks alongside tea, coffee and a glass of bubbles. The morning was a big success for all!

Cocktail season has arrived | How to make the perfect summer drink


With Spring finally here and summer quickly approaching, refreshing and delicious cocktails are on the mind!

Here are our top 3 tips to make the perfect cocktail that will be enjoyed by all during the summer months:

All cocktails should be made with the 2:1:1 ratio: 2 parts alcohol, 1 part sweet and 1 part sour. This is how all our signature cocktails are made in the Beach Club, and this is what makes them delicious! The right combination of ingredients is essential.

Choosing the right fruits and herbs to accompany your cocktail will make all the difference. Whether you decide to add mint or fresh lime, these flavours can essentially make or break your cocktail. Our Berry Trap not only has muddled mint included in the mix, but is also topped with a sprig, which enhances all the senses.

Always chill your glass before adding your mixed drink. the cold glass will help bring out the flavours and make the drink perfect for a hot summers day!


Follow these 3 tips, get creative and experiment and you will no doubt have some delicious cocktails to enjoy all summer.


Why not head into the Beach Club and try some of our delicious cocktails while soaking up the rays. Our cocktail menu is sure to have something for everyone.  From our Passionfruit Collins made with gin, fresh lime and passionfruit puree to our Grapefruit Margaritas, with tequila, lime, agave and fresh grapefruit, you’ll be sure to find something you enjoy!

Valued Patrons,

The popularity of Aussie meat overseas, coupled with the falling Aussie dollar, has led to a sharp increase in the price of meat. Some beef cuts have spiked by as much as 50 per cent in the past six months.  While this is great news for our farmers, it is forcing us to look at prices for affected dishes.

We have been taking a hit on our margins for the past few months but constant increases have forced us to raise the price on some of our dishes. Prices are being increased only on affected meat products, namely beef, pork and lamb. Chicken and seafood products will remain at current prices.

#KardashianKids Launch


Last week we hosted international celebrity Khloe Kardashian in Sunset Room for the exclusive launch of the lovable children’s apparel collection, Kardashian Kids.

Our events team turned Sunset Room into a carnival themed, fairy-tale playground decorated with unicorn rides, fairy lights, mini carousel’s, interactive arts and craft tables and a painting station where kids could decorate their very own Kardashian Kids t-shirt.

Guests feasted on the fruit and veggie station created by our amazing team of chefs, while bite sized canapes, yogurt parfaits, fruit infused waters and strawberry milks circled the room. For those with a sweet tooth, there were plenty of options including toffee apples and fresh coconuts topped with delicious, decedent desserts by Kayter Co!

Sydney’s most stylish mum’s, trendy kids, lifestyle and fashion media and mummy bloggers gathered together to celebrate the debut collection for little girls. Guests included Jules Sebastian, Terry Biviano and daughter Azura, Lynette Bolton and daughter Sierra, Paula Joye and daughter Ella and fashion blogger Tash Sefton and son’s Mac and Jay.

Each month we invite stylists and creatives into our venue to interpret and takeover our Sunset Room, as part of our Sunset Style Sessions. In March we had the pleasure of welcoming wedding stylist Michelle Villagra from Barefoot Projects into our venue, who took over Sunset Room and the Juliette Balcony for the day.

Michelle grew inspiration from our venue, in particular Sunset Room itself, which she explains as having “has the best of both worlds – sweeping oceanic views mixed with the lush greenery of the adjacent park”. Her crisp colour palette and design worked in synergy with the Hampton style canvas of our Sunset Room. Michelle even created a relaxed drinks area on the Juliette Balcony where guests could sit and enjoy a glass of bubbles, while enjoying the view of Watsons Bay.

White Magazine featured this styled shoot and listed Michele’s aesthetics of “billowing linen, fresh, clean accents and seasonally appropriate tones of white and dove grey meet casual touches of natural fibres, earthy florals and greenery.” These decorative features “juxtaposed with the formality and drama of the crystal cut glassware and white fur”.
