Shakespeare By The Bay – Date Night Sorted

Now that the outdoor cinema season has come to a close, we’ve got the perfect alternative for your next date night with bae. Our inaugural Shakespeare By The Bay is back and set to bring world-renowned Shakespearean performances to life!

What is it you may ask? Shakespeare By The Bay is a collaborative performance concept between Bard On The Beach, Woollahra Council and us. The performances being showcased are the much acclaimed The Tragedy Of King Richard III and The Two Gentlemen of Verona. What makes it really special though is the setting. The shows will be held just across the road from us in Robertson Park so you can enjoy these culture enriching performances overlooking the stunning backdrop of Sydney’s harbour.


So, here’s what we suggest to make this a date night your significant other will never forget!


With the Friday and Saturday night performances starting at 7.30pm, you’ve got time for a quick pre drink over at Beach Club. Have a beer or a glass of vino (or perhaps a cocktail), whatever tickles your fancy to get you into weekend mode.

After your beverage, head on over to the park to allow some time to get settled. Pack a rug and maybe a blanket or two in case it gets a little cold (or don’t if you’re hoping to get a little cozy!)


Food wise, we’ve taken the hard work out for you by preparing take-away picnics filled with a delicious array of eats for you to feast on (movie/show snacks are an absolute must!)

Now it’s time to sit back, relax, tuck into your picnic and enjoy the show! Prepare to be amazed by the exceptional talent of the Bard on The Beach touring team and have you breath taken away by the dazzling view. Even if you’re a Sydney local, watching the sunset over our beautiful harbour never gets old, right?

The show finishes at 10pm (or 9pm on Sundays) so the night is still young! If you’re in the mood, you can come back to us for another drink or perhaps some dessert – our Valrhona Chocolate Nemesis Cake is something pretty special.


Whether you decide to kick on or not, you can rest assured your date will be impressed with the effort and creativity you’ve put into this night out! Massive brownie points right here.
