February events in Sydney

Celebrate love in all forms, Lunar New Year and live music this month

By Time Out editors

We may see our final summer sunsets in February, but the second month of the year is as steamy as ever. Hit up the city’s swankiest boutique florists on Valentine’s Day to show your favourite person that you care. Or, woo a new beau by shouting them some noods at the spicy Lunar New Year markets and feasts, then spread all the colours of love at Mardi Gras.

Since it’s the month of that lovin’ feeling, we’ve found some alluring bars for first dates and quirky, cheap date ideas that let you treat bae without breaking the bank.

1. Liverpool Sculpture Walk

Art Sculpture and installations Casula Parklands Playground, Casula

Casula Parklands is playing host to a new sculpture walk, featuring eight works from Sculpture by the Sea. Visitors will be able to follow the sculptures along the banks of the Georges River, starting at Casula Powerhouse. One of the key works you'll encounter on the walk is Southern Highlands sculptor David Ball's 'Celest', which stood proud on Tamarama Beach at this year's Sculpture by the Sea. The imposing corten steel sculpture will be installed in Casula for the duration of the sculpture walk.

2. The Room at Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace

Film Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace, Cremorne

Hayden Orpheum holds cult screenings on the first Friday of every month. These screenings show no sign of petering out. Indeed, every month the cult of The Room grows. Time Out can't recommend this movie highly enough. The James Franco film The Disaster Artist is about the making of The Room – but why go for the pale imitation when you can mainline the pure stuff?
