Don’t let the colder weather bring you down! Round up some of your closest friends, bundle up in your favourite coat and head down into the city to some of the best pop-ups Sydney has to offer. We promise the mulled wine and banging tunes will be worth the winter chill!
The former Victoria Room has been transformed into The Chalet, which will be open for the next three months. The quaint space looks just like a traditional ski lodge, equipped with an in-house snow making machine, delicious mulled wine and even a chairlift at the entrance.
235 Victoria Street, Darlinghurst from June 25th
Winter Garden St Mary’s Cathedral
If you’re up for a bit of ice-skating, head down to St Mary’s Cathedral for the annual winter festival. The forecourt is transformed into the ultimate winter wonderland, without the hassle of heading to the snow itself! Kids will have fun playing on the various slides, ice skating and even exploring the igloos. Unwind with a cocktail at the winter garden lounge if you need a break from the chaos of it all.
St Mary’s Road, Sydney
Fire and Ice Festival
June in Sydney will see Saké Restaurant and Bar transform into a full-blown whisky bar featuring Japanese Nikka Whisky. Try it with some nibbles, in a cocktail, or try a tasting session with a few friends.

Rye July at The Glenmore
One of Sydney’s hottest rooftop bars is getting into the winter with one of our favourite spirits – whisky! Rye July is packed with cocktails, whisky tasting (Johnnie Walker to be specific) and many canapés to choose from. Kicking off on Thursday 2 July, the event will be available every week.
