From 12pm–2pm and 3pm–5pm every Saturday.

More gin, less problems

What a night
Two of Sydney’s top restaurants will become one on December 7. Aria executive chef Joel Bickford and Lumi head chef and owner Federico Zanellato will team up to craft an eight-course snack-style menu ($250 or $380 with beverage pairing) that melds influences from both venues. Tackles dishes such as yellowfin tuna tartare with oyster crackling and coral trout with honeydew melon, cucumber and wasabi in the stunning surrounds of the Aria dining room. Dinner sessions will run for two hours.

Hit the road
Mr Black coffee liqueur has launched a “coffee cocktail trail” on the central coast. The focal point of the trail is Mr Black’s distillery in Erina, where visitors will learn how to shake their own Espresso Martinis, and get a tour of the roastery and distillery ($25). Mr Black’s Caffeine Caravan will also be on site pumping out samples of Mr Black’s products, and you can pop in to Bar Botanica – which shares the grounds with Mr Black – for lunch or another cheeky drink. Continue the self-led tour by sampling the eight-strong Espresso Martini at Bon Pavilion in Gosford; head down the road to South End Social for a fortifying cup of joe; or make for Rhondas, in the beachside suburb of Terrigal, which is serving Coffee Negronis.
