Archie Rose is teaming up with the National Art School, FBi Radio and P&V for the return of Stickybeak Festival – a two-day party of eats, drinks, tunes and art

Award-winning Aussie distillery Archie Rose is teaming up with the National Art School (NAS), P&V Wine & Liquor Merchants, and for the first time ever, FBi Radio, to bring back food and booze festival Stickybeak over two days this March. On Friday, March 8, and Saturday 9, the National Art School will be taken over by an all-star line-up of Sydney’s best restaurants and bars, with top diners like Bar Copains, Gildas, King Clarence, Raja, Red Bird, Porcine, Bloodwood, Takam and more pumping out delicious eats.

Outstanding booze by Archie Rose, as well as tipples by PS40, Grifter Brewing Co, Tucano’s, The Waratah, Double Deuce Lounge and the soon-to-open The Emerald Room will be keeping punters well sauced. FBi Radio will be making their Stickybeak debut across the two days, with a killer line-up of FBi DJs spinning bangers as well as Sydney-based music acts performing.

NAS will be opening their incredible campus and gallery at the former Darlinghurst Gaol for all to have a wander and stickybeak around. And if you’re keen to get your Libby Haines-on, there will be art workshops – including drawing, screen printing and heat press collaging – across the two days (spaces are limited and tickets go on sale soon).

This is the third year for Stickybeak Festival, and something tells us this is going to be the best one yet. Tickets are just $20 (plus booking fee) per person. Your ticket gets you a free Archie Rose tasting, a bumper gift bag valued at $50, plus you get to take home three 50ml Archie Rose bottles from the signature range (Signature Dry Gin, Native Botanical Vodka and Rye Malt Whisky) and two free premix Archie Rose gin or vodka cans. For more info, head to the Stickybeak website to get the scoop.
