Rosé Rising at Barangaroo House
Time Out says
One venue. Three levels. Thirty-one days to rosé...all day
You most definitely don’t need another reason to knock back a bottle of rosé as the mercury rises, but Barangaroo House is giving you a whole lot more of ’em with the return of its month-long celebration of everyone’s favourite blush-coloured party starter.
Rosé Rising sees all three levels of the waterside venue raising a glass to all things pink, all October long. On the ground floor, the House Bar will be pouring frosé and carafes of rosé sangria from open till close, but if you want to get bubbly, buy a mini bottle of Moët & Chandon Rosé Imperial from the custom vending machine, or shell out for a 750ml bottle for a chance to spin the Rosé Roulette Wheel and walk home with a prize. Oyster happy hour happens between 4-6pm on weekdays, when bivalves drop to $2 each (served with rosé mignonette, of course).
Up at Bea, the fine diner on level one, the Ruinart Rosé Raw Bar will be the main event, offering bundles of Ruinart Rosé Champagne and oysters. If quantity is what you seek, make a lunch booking Friday through Sunday and opt in for $55 bottomless rosé, or add a rosé pairing (‘Classy’ for $60, ‘Outrageous’ for $80) to the chef’s menu any day of the week.
Still thirsty? Make your way up to Smoke – our pick for one of the city’s best rooftop bars – where a round-up of some of their best-selling pink drinks is back for a limited run. Does a dessert with a pink macaron, gummy bears and a raspberry musk stick made especially for the occasion seem OTT? They've gone all out here, and so should you.
It’s a lot to conquer in one go, so get your hands on a rosé passport, take the pink disco lift from one stop to the next and make sure to get it stamped with every experience you enjoy. Six stamps scores you a chance to win big (even more rosé?), and you can get one just by finding the tiny pink room hidden somewhere in the venue. (Hint: it’s very…pink.)
