This January long weekend, celebrate at some of Sydney’s finest venues.

The Australian Heritage Hotel, The Rocks

You’ll be ready to sink a cold one at The Aussie’s ripper long weekend party and you can’t get more Australian than The Australian Heritage Hotel.  To celebrate the best-known Aussie beer (and prime minister) there’s $2 tinnies available all weekend, just listen for the bell to score a can of VB or Hawkes. Be quick, the offer is only available for 15 minutes from the first ring.

With entertainment and good times in mind, there’s live screening of the Australian Open on the outdoor screens. There’s Pimms available on tap; live music; a Stone & Wood garden party and of course Triple J’s Hottest 100 countdown live and loud. The team will be serving down under themed bites including crocodile san choy bow; a kanga sanga and a Caramello Koala chocolate cheesecake. Wash these down with a national drink paddle celebrating a beer from each state for $17.50.

The Aussie has recovery in mind with a Bloody Mary bar on Monday to set you straight before starting the week.
