This year, Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour brings the Vivid Sydney experience to a whole new level, with spectacular light projections on its façade every evening, a pop-up bar serving highball cocktails on the top floor Club Millesime, and a signature cocktail in Champagne Bar, created as a tribute to Madame Clicquot’s artistry.
For the first time, Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour will open its exclusive Club Millesime to external guests for a luxurious pop-up bar. Located on the hotel’s 35th floor and usually reserved for the hotel’s VIP guests, Club Millesime offers dazzling panoramic views over Darling Harbour and the CBD skyline, making it the ideal vantage point to soak up the Vivid views. Created in partnership with Glenmorangie single malt whiskies, the pop-up bar will offer a selection of 8 signature highball cocktails and a small selection of beverages, and will be open Thursday to Saturday nights from 8pm throughout Vivid Sydney.
Meanwhile, the hotel’s award-winning Champagne Bar will serve a Vivid-inspired Champagne cocktail every evening: the ‘Yellow-flamed Phoenix’, literally going up in flames under the guest’s eyes. Created by resident mixologist Evan Brown as a tribute to Madame Clicquot’s own artistry and spirit of innovation, the cocktail includes Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label, plantation rum, rockmelon, Chartreuse, lemon bitters and Yellow Box honey ($26). Located on the third floor, Champagne Bar will offer a chic candle-lit atmosphere, with spectacular Darling Harbour views.
And to make this the perfect night out, guests can also stay in one of the hotel’s Superior Rooms, Darling Harbour View (from $452 per room per night including breakfast and a Yellow-Flamed Phoenix cocktail), or in a luxurious Junior Suite, Darling Harbour View (from $797 per night including breakfast, a Yellow-Flamed Phoenix cocktail and access to the 35th floor Club Millesime).
