Happy Hours

Thu 15th October, 2020 – Sat 31st October, 2020
Various locations
Celebrate and support the businesses of 2010 and beyond with two weeks of meal deals, cocktail specials, gin tastings and movie nights.

More than 80 businesses, including Marta, Poly, Bitter Phew, La Farmacia and Ariel Books, have come together for Happy Hours – a two-week event in celebration and support of the businesses of Darlinghurst and Surry Hills (and their neighbours). Businesses across the 2010 postcode and beyond will offer a series of meal deals, drinks specials, movie nights and more as part of the festival, in an effort to inject much-needed cash into the coronavirus-affected economy.

Food and beverage deals include an Aperol Spritz and bar snack for $20 at Casoni (from 5pm to 7pm); $10 Espresso Martinis from 5pm to 6pm at La Farmacia (plus free chips and salsa); 49 per cent off bottles of wine at The Winery; three snacks matched with sake from Black Market Sake at Poly; and a range of cocktail specials at Wild Rover.

Other deals include 15 per cent off cookbooks all October at Ariel Books (just mention "happy hours"); 10 per cent off vinyl all month at Record Store (just mention "happy hours"); $5 house wine, beer and spirits between 5pm and 7pm every night at Universal; and $10 burgers and $10 cocktails at Harpoon Harry all day, every day.

On October 23 and 30 The Essential Ingredient will host Friyay Fiesta happy hours. For $30 you'll get Mexican-inspired snacks, cocktails from Brix Distillers and Katie Swift Cordials and tortilla-making demos from Rosa Cienfuegos (Rosa Cienfuegos Tamaleria).

There's also an art walk that takes in four galleries and dinner or a drink at Marta; fashion-styling sessions at Baz Inc; fundraising for Rough Edges drop-in centre; dinner and drag shows at some of Sydney's classic LGBTQI+ venues; "karma kegs" from Young Henrys (raising money for mental health organisation Heart On My Sleeve); and happy-hour deals at pubs and bars including Dove and Olive, East Village, Green Park, The Taphouse and The Trinity.
