New Year's Eve at Mary's Underground
Time Out says
If you're looking to get down on New Year's Eve, there's no better place to head than Underground
If anybody knows how to throw one hell of a party, it’s the Mary’s crew. And there’s no better stage for a big blowout than their debaucherous den of live music, fat lobsters and high-flying good times, Mary’s Underground.
They’re going all out for their first-ever New Year’s Eve with two epic feasts, and they’re getting the ball rolling early. Bring the whole family along to the pre-fireworks feast, which kicks off at 5.30pm with a glass of bubbles and Sydney rock oysters and evolves into a whopper of a shared three-course menu with all the greatest hits: the luscious spanner crab tortilla, the signature dry-aged rotisserie duck and the flaming bombe Alaska. Meanwhile, the kidlets get fairy bread on arrival before the choice of steak or a Mary’s cheeseburger and an ice cream sundae – so there certainly won’t be any complaints coming from that end of the table. Better still, you’ll wrap up at 8.30pm so you’ve got time to clamber up the stairs and watch the 9pm fireworks from Circular Quay.
Once 9pm rolls around, they’ll shift things into high gear with a Bourbon cocktail on arrival that sets the tone for the adults-only second sitting. The same killer spread will grace the tables, with the added bonus of a midnight toast, and the opportunity to kick on till they switch the lights off at 3am.
The Underground Brass Band will be supplying tunes all night long, with local DJs on the decks well into the witching hour. If you’re looking to see 2019 out with a real bang, look no further.
Tickets cost $150 for adults ($80 for kids aged 12-17 and $40 for those 12 and under) for the pre-fireworks feast, and $300 for the adults-only fireworks feast.
