The Blind Barber
Time Out says
Get suited up for this 1920s-inspired party
This new pop-up party experience has a gin-sipping, flapper dress-wearing, hooch-smuggling theme that’ll entice Sydney’s boozy history buffs. The Blind Barber will channel the taboo excitement of the Prohibition era into a monthly party that gives a sly nod to Sydney’s penchant for hidden underground drinking dens.
A standard ticket to the event covers entry to this very secretive affair plus entertainment – think waistcoated Charlestoning and high-stakes card games – but you’ll need to barter for booze and dinner on your own dime at the bar. Otherwise, book in for canapés or a three-course meal for a higher price.
This is the first time the pop-up speakeasy will sneak into Sydney, and it’s setting up inside some of North Sydney’s most well-hidden vaults at the Coal Loader. You’ll probably want to don a costume worthy of the roaring ’20s for the occasion, but they won’t call the coppers on you if you’re not entirely historically accurate.
