Win a pass to Sydney's newest escape rooms for you and your friends
If your idea of a great time with your crew is playing detective and solving riddles, then you'll want to check out the city's newest escape rooms in Sydney's inner west. Myst Escape Rooms in Glebe have four themed experiences and they all have custom props and interactive technologies to make the life-size riddles more fun. New at this? You can start with one-hour experiences like the vampire-themed Dracula's Dark Awakening and the treasure finding quest of Pirate's Gold. But if you've been working your way through Sydney's escape rooms and feel like a challenge, the Cursed Tomb is the escape room for you. It's a two-hour journey into a sinister ancient tomb that involves the members of your team being separated and working together to escape the tomb unharmed. Maybe your favourite part of any game is the 'boss fight', in that case you'll want to try the Ancient Palace immersive theatre experience, which is made for six to 12 players. The concept: a murder mystery at a grim birthday party in the Qing Dynasty. Your role: get into character with professional actors to crack the case and prove your innocence. If you're intrigued, you could win one of three complimentary passes to experience the Dracula's Dark Awakening or the Pirate's Gold escape rooms. With one of these passes, you can gather a group of four to eight people, so make sure you bring a solid crew. To win a pass, simply enter the competition through the link below before 10am, Friday June 21. Enter now
Merivale is cutting your evening bar tab by 49 per cent in June
We love a good happy hour here in Sydney. Hell, most evenings the glorious post-work 60-minute drinks special will often last for more like two or three hours. But for the month of June, hospo giant Merivale is cranking it up a notch. For the second year running, they’re offering a 49 per cent discount on drinks from 5-7pm for the whole month, just to give you a fab start to every evening. Photograph: Anna Kucera And you won’t be limited to ho-hum house wine or bulk standard beer. The special covers everything on the drinks list up to $200, so you can splash out without getting all your cash out. The best part? Merivale’s venues stretch from the CBD to the Inner West, the shores of the Northern Beaches and by the sand in the Eastern Suburbs, so you can make your way through the fancy end of menus at 39 very cool bars and pubs across town. But if you’ve got a particular booze experience you’d like to knock over during this month of cheap hacks, you’ll need to study up. If you’re all about complex cocktails with a per-page description and ingredient list, head to Charlie Parker’s in Paddington. This subterranean joint will fix you a fantastical drink filled with seasonal produce and mixed with chef-like dedication. Try the Strawberry, which is a surprising blend of soy sauce, evaporated coffee, bitter orange and tonic water. Photograph: Anna Kucera Whisky hounds should make a beeline for J&M. You can while away the evening sipping smooth, top-shelf single malt pours for so
BoConcept brings chic Danish designer furniture to Sydney
Walking into a BoConcept store is like entering an alternative reality, giving you a glimpse of what your life could be like if you were living the best version of it. If your home were this clean, organised and stylish, surely you would cease to clutter it with unfolded laundry and takeaway menus? (Would you even order takeaway anymore, or would you cook organic meals and host dinner parties around your elegant-yet-functional dining table?) Good design can be aspirational like that. And Danish company BoConcept has been crafting modern, innovative furniture since 1952. You know – the kind of pieces that feel as good to sit on as they are to look at. Or effortlessly stylish interiors that signal the owner has both means and taste – or at least the good sense to outsource their decorating to the interior designers that staff BoConcept Sydney stores. The in-store stylists can guide you towards the furniture and accessories that fit your lifestyle, or the designers that most align with your aesthetic. Some serious names have designed contemporary pieces for BoConcept: Morten Georgsen, Anders Nørgaard, Henrik Pedersen, Frans Schrofer, ARDE, Oki Sato and rockstar designer Karim Rashid are all among their ranks. (Don’t know those names? Don’t worry, their work speaks for itself.) Whether you need to enliven your living space with one outstanding furniture piece, or furnish your entire dwelling with coordinated design, BoConcept's customer-focused interior designers can help. C
