Meet Sydney's newest dining hall

Wandering around the CBD is hungry work and it can be pretty hard to find a good place to eat. Now you can head to the 580 George building on (you guessed it) George Street for the latest elevated addition to the city's dining districts and food courts. Entering the revamped 580 Foodhall, you'll be greeted by modern interiors and some of the city's best owner-operated eateries.  The days of food court plastic tables and chairs and grimey tiles are over, the 580 Foodhall is a fresh and luxe space with cosy wood finishes and lush plantlife. Settle in to one of their updated seating options for a big bowl of laksa from Alice's Makan, a refreshing poke bowl from Andy’s Poke, or dosa from Anjappar. Visit 580 Foodhall to see who the rest of the exciting food vendors are, as there are a couple yet to be announced. Relaunching on Friday November 2, the improved 580 Foodhall will begin with a bang. Head down between 11am and 2pm for sets from local musicians, a pop-up prosecco bar from Brown Brothers, and food carts flinging samples of the delicious food available at the new look dining hub. Make sure you enter the competition for a chance to win a $100 food voucher to use at any of the eateries at 580 Foodhall. Simply snap a pic of your experience, or delicious meal, and use the hashtags #580GeorgeStreetLaunch and #580Foodhall to go in the draw. Terms and conditions apply for this competition, see the 580 Foodhall website for details.  Don't settle for another boring work lunch o

Meet Mobsta the roaming photobooth

Fotobox Australia is all about capturing parties and events in the most fun and dynamic way possible. Now they've introduced a new way to capture the action – the Mobsta. It's the next generation of roving photobooths for hire. With the Mobsta, you can snap a branded 3D animated GIF, Boomerang or stop motion GIF on the spot.  The best thing about it? It's handheld and totally portable, meaning it can pop-up anywhere at your event, whether it's a birthday party, wedding or fancy shindig with friends and family. After you've snapped your moment, you can have it sent to your email instantly. For events and brands that means heaps of great social interaction, and for you, it means red hot content. Along with the Mobsta, Fotobox have a bunch of different customisable creative photo solutions for your events, from immersive 3D photobooths, to interactive set designed video loops.  Find out more about Fotobox Australia.

Try this refreshed bar for after-work drinks

The storied, heritage City Tattersalls Club building has been a meeting place for Sydneysiders for over 120 years. Have a side of history with your schooner in their lovingly restored Lower Bar – a popular haunt for bookmakers in the 1920s, its marble floors and Art Deco columns have been reinvigorated this year with a fresh menu, bold whiskies and live music. Give your after-work drinks some polish with Lower Bar's blended whiskies, cocktails, classic beers and shareable snacks. Settle into the leather lounges and choose from their extensive Martini menu, or try one of their fruity cocktails, such as an Everyday Romeo with Alize Gold Passion, Paraiso lychee liqueur, Absolut Blue vodka, passionfruit pulp and fresh lime juice. There are also charcuterie boards to complement your drinks, along with freshly shucked oysters, potato wedges and beef tacos. All soundtracked by live music on Thursday and Friday nights. Tell your workmates to shake up the same old drinks routine and take them to City Tattersalls Club's Lower Bar for a sophisticated and fun change. Find out more here.
