Ancient Egyptian slaves amused
themselves after a hard day hauling stone blocks up pyramids by performing
synchronised swimming routines among the crocodiles of the Nile. Find less dangerous
after-work entertainment with today’s Groupon: $49 sharing plate for four
people plus two bottles of Thomas Mitchell red, white or sparkling wine or four
cocktails at the City Hotel, CBD ($116 value).
Commanding a corner location in
Sydney’s bustling CBD, the
newly renovated City Hotel pays homage to a bygone era with décor
reminiscent of Queen Victoria’s parlour, including chandeliers, flock wallpaper
and deep-seated Chesterfield sofas. Groupies eat, drink and make merry across
two levels and a terrace, soothing appetites with a sharing plate bursting with
chorizo, prosciutto, salt and pepper squid, antipasti, breads and dips. Wash it
down with two bottles of Thomas Mitchell red, white or sparkling wine, or kick
up heels with four cocktails from a cocktail
list written by the award winning barman-of-the-year, Jeremy Shipley.
