Long before Russian mafia hitman John Wick’s shady dealings brought him to The Continental, the hotel chain was already a safe haven and neutral territory for assassins and members of the underworld. Now a new three-part series set in the ’70s chronicles how Winston Scott (Ian McShane in the Keanu Reeves-starring flicks, Colin Woodell in the new prequel) came to be the luxury hotel’s proprietor in New York, and we’re giving you the chance to live out the glamour (minus the organised crime, of course).

To celebrate the release of The Continental: From the World of John Wick, we’ve teamed up with Prime Video to give one lucky reader a weekend away in Sydney, inspired by The Continental hotel.

Sound good? Here’s what you can win.

A $1000 gift voucher to QT Sydney means you can spend your weekend of indulgence in the five-star hotel. It’s housed across two heritage-listed structures: the Gowings building, a former department store that’s also one of Sydney’s most historic landmarks, and the opulent State Theatre. Its mix of palazzo-style architecture, art deco features and gothic elements give it an old-world grandeur, while inside you’ll find a modern space full of bold colour.

It’s not a proper trip to Sydney without hitting some stars of the city’s exciting dining scene. Your prize includes a $400 Broadsheet gift card that can be used at almost any restaurant, cafe or bar around the country – including some of Sydney’s finest. Our suggestions for that ’70s New York feel? Manhattan-inspired steakhouse Clam Bar, by the team behind Pellegrino 2000 and Bistrot 916; the first Australian outpost of famed New York bar Employees Only in a heritage-listed and semi-hidden basement bar; Continental Deli, Bar and Bistro in Newtown; and more.

Not based in Sydney? No worries – the prize also includes a $600 Flight Centre voucher to get you there and back.
