STORY BY SARAH GLOVER • PHOTOGRAPHY BY LUISA BRIMBLE
My model of a sister calls me up saying she is coming to Sydney and she can’t wait to hit the dance floor; immediately my mind starts to panic! Where do we go? New Year’s Eve is one of the times that you want to plan the party you’re going to or get out of town and go camping, and seeing the later was not an option, I had to find out where the heck we would go to welcome in 2017.
When I heard the Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel was having a bash, I knew in an instant that it’s the place to be. It’s a no-brainer. As you know, I LOVE the outdoors, so the idea of being able to get all dressed up and dance the night away under the stars at one of the most stunning venues in Sydney is hard to pass up.
But if you’re like me the New Year’s Day is almost as important as the celebrations the night prior, the Surf Lodge Montauk (I have been there on a few occasions when I lived in New York) is coming Down Under, and Bambi is DJ-ing, and this is where you’ll find me on the first day of the year. Celebrating good friends, food, drinks and music.
I wanted to get the scoop on the best drinks to be sipping while watching the sun go down, and the boys behind the bar were most obliging to help…
