Time Out says

Couldn't go to Coachella this year? Come to Cargo instead

Darling Harbour is far from a desert, but Cargo Bar is nevertheless channeling Palm Springs this summer, so throw on your best festival attire and head down for drinks and party tunes.

Groups of 4-15 people can book one of the new harbourside booths for some exclusive fun. The GA package costs $35 per person and gets you jugs of cocktails on arrival plus pizza to share, while the VIP package gets you bottomless cocktails and snacks for two hours for $80 per person. 

On Saturdays, there's a two-hour bottomless Cargo-cella Brunch with a hard seltzer opener followed by the main act of rosé sangria, Bloody Marys and wine. The menu is all-American with poke bowls, mac 'n' cheese balls, brisket tacos, doughnut fries and baked New York cheesecake. Book for 11am or 1.30pm sessions.

And if you're looking for a party on NYE, the DJs will be spinning all night by the water. Tickets range from $69 General Admission (with a complimentary drink on arrival) to the $140 Upstairs package, which includes three hours of canapés and beverages. Rockstars, their groupies and high rollers can upgrade to a private booth for $200 per person.
