Where to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day 2016
The Glenmore, The Rocks
Cheers (with a Guinness) to one of Ireland’s patron saints St Patrick, on the rooftop of The Glenmore this St. Patrick’s Day. As you overlook views of Sydney Harbour, enjoy pork and fennel sausages, colcannon and peas complete with Guinness and onion gravy. Perfect for the lovers of the “black stuff”, there will be a Guinness pop-up bar on the rooftop, and Irish entertainment will begin at 5pm. Dress in a touch of green (or a kilt if you’re feeling adventurous), listen to the Irish bagpipes and you’ll feel like you’re partying in a local Dublin pub.
Food special: $23 for a pork and fennel sausage, colcannon and peas with Guinness and onion gravy. Available from Tuesday, 15 March to Monday, 21 March.
Opening hours: 11am-12am
Address: 96 Cumberland Street, The Rocks
