A retired business owner, my passions are cooking, photography and eating. I use all three of these when I write for recipeyum.com.au which is on HubGarden
Bright lights, excellent food and drinks combined
Vivid Sydney is a festival where there are many items, buildings, and trees lit up in various places in Sydney. Check out this article which is very informative, and gives you 30 reasons to visit Vivid Sydney.
Vivid Sydney is where "inspiration shines bright."This is the eleventh year that this festival has been on and it will start on 24th May and run till 15th June 2019.
Vivid Sydney is Australia's most popular and awarded festival as it showcases the work of light artists, music makers and incredible thinking as they share their creativity with you.
The city will be transformed with artworks, sound and much more.
At the Royal Botanic Gardens, you can wander through 15 light installations, with the city skyscape and the harbour as bright backdrops.
This particular venue will be the Royal Botanic Garden and here you can use your imagination as well as feed your inner self! It is not just about the illuminations and the bright lights at Vivid Sydney this year - as you walk through the Light Walk in the Botanic Gardens, you will come across an old school Fisherman's wharf type bar and eatery amidst all the glowing lights.
You may be needing warming up in this winter weather and to do this, you can buy a mulled wine. Or you may want to feed that tummy and have a delicious supper by the sea. Either way, you will be thankful that you stopped by at either of these places.
The bar has been suitably named the HMAS Royal Archie. This comes from a blue concoction of Archie Rose Signature Dry Gin, pineapple and macadamia. You may, however, prefer the Harbour Rose featuring Archie Rose' original Vodka, watermelon, citrus and pink lustre! Hmmm, they both sound amazing!

But wait, there's more - there's also the New South Wh-Ale if you fancy a drink by a variety of vinos by the glass and bottle. As well as these, you could have a bit of nostalgia with golden fried fish and beer battered chips. Of course, these would not be complete without a mighty dollop of tangy tartare, and all wrapped in paper.
You can enjoy any of this alone or with your family or friends as they do a pack for a family of four.
Another choice is the famous fish chowder, where you will not have to lick the bowl simply because you can eat the bowl also!
Yes, that's right - you can eat the bowl also. It will be served in a bread bowl instead of a normal plate.
There are few foods more comforting than a homemade pot pie or perhaps a big bowl of mac 'n' cheese and luckily the menu features both of these. The mac-n-cheese is really something outstanding with chunks of fresh lobster meat topped with a crispy garlic crumbed topping. Then there are the crispy, sweet pineapple fritters which are topped with a delightful topping of cinnamon sugar and this, in turn, is topped with a scoop of classic vanilla ice cream.
So this list is just fabulous and a great choice when you will be rushing to the official pop-up bar and eatery in The Royal Botanic Gardens this Vivid.
This is situated right along the Light Walk, and the fully licensed area also features a VIP deck. This is the perfect spot for functions and events that require good food and drink packages. These are available by contacting them on email: firstname.lastname@example.org
This bar will be open every night from 6.00 pm until 11.00 pm, from Friday 24th May through to Saturday 15th June 2019.
