Bloody great news
It’s back: Four Pillars’ cult-favourite Bloody Shiraz Gin has its 2021 release date. On June 1, you’ll be able to get your mitts on the purple-hued spirit, as well as some Bloody Shiraz Gin-infused treats, including caviar and a grape and quince paste. To celebrate the launch, Eileen’s Bar at the Four Pillars Laboratory is hosting a bunch of events, including a night of cabaret, gin and dress-ups; and a cocktail masterclass. It’ll also be serving a special menu of Bloody Shiraz cocktails throughout June.

A Pitt Street pop-up
Aussie leather accessories brand Maison de Sabré today launches a pop-up store at Pitt Street Mall. The company has collaborated with Sony to create a nature-inspired 85-square-metre space, filled with visual projections and sounds from the Australian wild. You’ll be able to pick up the brand’s range of colourful leather phone covers, totes, clutches and wallets. The store is open until July 2021 at shop 1-03G in Westfield Sydney.

Wear your favourite bar on your sleeve
CBD mezcal bar Cantina Ok! has launched a new seasonal cocktail menu – named Down the Wormhole – that’ll be available until October. It includes tasty-sounding concoctions such as a sour with salted peanut and banana meringue; the Nevada Ok! (microwave-popcorn tequila, sweet corn, lemon ice, chamoy); and the Sagittarius Ok! (tequila, rhubarb, riesling, raspberry, vanilla). To mark the occasion, it’s released a line of spunky, intergalactic-themed merch, including a tote, a tee and a long-sleeved tee.

Catch of the day
Woolloomooloo waterfront diner Manta is hosting a one-night-only dinner celebrating the produce of its very own fishmonger, Fishermen’s Wharf in Nelson Bay. On May 19 a five-course meal ($125; drinks not included) will make use of that morning’s catch – there’s no sample menu, what you’ll eat completely depends on what the fishermen net on the day. The event starts at 7pm.

Woven stories
From May 14 to July 4, the Granville Centre art gallery is exploring how textiles are harnessed by a group of contemporary artists from Australia and New Zealand in an exhibition titled A link a loop, a circle. Artists including Elizabeth Pulie, Teelah George, Hayley Pigram, Rainbow Chan and Sayd Abdali will display works that demonstrate how textiles are woven through their practices, revealing how each interacts with and interprets their community, culture and history.
