Van Gogh-inspired "Starry Night" cocktail in Champagne Bar, Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour

The art of mixing, Van Gogh style

Available from 17 September 2020 until 31 August 2021

Indulge in a deluxe cultural getaway to celebrate the Sydney opening of acclaimed ‘Van Gogh Alive’ exhibition, the most visited multi-sensory arts experience in the world.

Unleashing his own artistry, our talented Champagne Bar Manager Jarod Senior marked the occasion with an exciting new signature cocktail called “The Starry Night”, after one of Van Gogh’s most iconic masterpieces.

“The Starry Night”, which hangs on the walls of the prestigious MoMA Museum in New York, is one of the most recognized paintings in the history of Western culture. It features a sunrise scene with vibrant blues and lavender fields, inspired by Van Gogh’s long stay in Provence, in the south of France (a place where Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour takes a lot of its culinary cues from).

As a nod to this sunrise, our own Starry Night cocktail shifts from blue to purple, as our bartender pours it in your glass. It artfully blends Joseph Cartron Crème de Pêche, Butterfly Pea Flower Syrup, Lemon and Egg White ($22) and is available every Friday and Saturday night in Champagne Bar.

And for the perfect date night, book our exclusive Van Gogh package from $299 a night, inclusive of overnight accommodation in a Superior Room, complimentary upgrade to Darling Harbour views, breakfast for two, and two “Starry Night” cocktails in Champagne Bar. Book before 29th December 2020, stay until 31st August 2021 (excluding 30-31 December 2020).
