HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I can hardly believe that another year has been and gone – even though 2014 was a wonderful ride, here at Sydney Social we cannot wait for all that 2015 has in store!
New Year’s Eve is always such a crazy night, it goes by so quickly and then all of a sudden, before you know it the countdown is happening, mesmerising fireworks grace the night sky and bam…it’s a new year. WOW. Hello 2015!
Sydney is one of the first cities to welcome in the New Year, (and in my opinion) Sydney’s fireworks display is the best in the world and this year was no exception. This NYE, Sydney Social’s vantage point was from Dawes Point Park, right under the Sydney Harbour Bridge – incredible is an understatement!
But before all the countdown craziness, Sydney Social 101 was lucky enough to be treated to the most fabulous meal in the heart of Sydney at The Morrison Bar and Oyster Room. Located in prime position, right on George Street, after dinner it was literally a hop, skip and a jump down to Circular Quay to watch the incredible fireworks.
The Morrison Bar and Oyster Room certainly did not disappoint, with a glass of Bollinger Champagne to start and 3-course meal menu by Sean Connolly, the relaxed yet stylish atmosphere was the perfect place to farewell 2014.
The thing I loved about The Morrison’s NYE dinner was that each course was designed to share (so if you’re someone like me who can never decide what to order) you actually got a taste of everything!
No surprise, one of the picks of the night was the Freshly Shucked Oysters with red wine vinaigrette. The melt-in-your-mouth Lamb Shoulder was another crowd favourite.
With service we couldn’t fault, The Morrison put on a simply spectacular NYE – thanks so much for having us!
