Bring Your Darling To The Harbour: The Perfect Winter Date Night
Love is for all seasons, but there is something extra special about love in the winter. Warm meals lovingly shared, gloved fingers intertwined together, and more excuses than ever before to hold each other close. To help you celebrate your love in the colder months, we’ve devised some awesome ideas for the perfect winter date night.
Wander down to Darling Quarter under the city lights. You can come through the bustling neon of Chinatown, or waltz along The Goods Line from Ultimo for a beautiful evening walk. Amble together under the glowing lights of Luminous, then head into Stacks Bar Restaurant for a special steak dinner. Try inspired urban sushi dining at Umi Sushi + Udon, fresh modern Italian at Vesta, or head into the Guylian Belgian Chocolate Cafe for a luxurious chocolate dessert while you make googly eyes across the table.
Stroll past the playground and the carousel to Palm Grove, then head into The Meat & Wine Co for succulent ribs, or pop into Gelatissimo for something sweet. Then go upstairs to IMAX Sydney to catch a movie on the world’s biggest screen. (And maybe share a few cheeky kisses in the dark!)
Go arm in arm along Cockle Bay Wharf, taking in the cosmopolitan sights and sounds of the waterfront strip. Indulge in a whole baby lobster at Nick’s Seafood Restaurant for only $49, have your own Lady and the Tramp moment over a plate of fresh, delicious pasta at Baia The Italian, or try the best in seasonal produce and slow-cooked meats up on the rooftop at new restaurant Hunter & Barrel. Settle in on the balcony at Blackbird Cafe for a signature cocktail designed by in-house mixologist Mirko Cacciola, or take in some chill house beats and a winter gimlet overlooking the water at Cafe Del Mar.
Walk across Pyrmont Bay Bridge and see the harbour in full view, before heading into Harbourside to sit down for a fresh seafood dinner or succulent pork ribs at Cyren Seafood Restaurant & Bar. Visit Morocco at Kazbah, share some authentic Japanese cuisine at Sushi Bay, or sit on the open terrace at Cohi Bar for some sophisticated date night cocktails. Settle in at Hard Rock Cafe for $5 mulled wine to warm the body and soul, or grab two milkshakes for $15 or two regular premium Belgian hot chocolates for $8 from Andersen’s of Denmark before soaring above the city on the Star of the Show Ferris Wheel, taking in all the city lights as you snuggle up close.
So grab a scarf, some gloves, and someone you love, for the perfect winter date night.
