PARTY ON BOURBON STREET AS NEW ORLEANS COMES TO COCKATOO ISLAND

20130124-231850.jpg

Let The Island Bar at Cockatoo Island transport you to Bourbon Street in New Orleans for an Aussie take on one of the world’s legendary festivals- the New Orleans Mardi Gras.

It will be all about old-fashioned Southern hospitality (in the heart of Sydney Harbour) as Sydney’s favourite summer-time bar is transformed into New Orleans oldest neighbourhood, the French Quarter. Featuring Bourbon Street favourites Maker’s Mark Bourbon and Cruzan Rum, from Friday February 15 to Sunday February 17 there will be an irreverent festival atmosphere at The Island Bar with top bartenders showcasing the traditions and history of cocktails from New Orleans.

The Island Bar’s Bourbon Street party will transport island-goers into a world of decadence, Creole style. To get into the spirit, visitors will be given beaded necklaces and festival masks on arrival to party in the bar festooned with lighting and jester hats. On offer will be Maker’s Mark Mint Juleps, Cruzan Rum Hurricanes and other classic New Orleans cocktails, to be sipped on a French Quarter balcony with garlands and bunting flags.

Food carts will serve unique Louisiana cuisine including Creole pizzas straight from the wood-fire oven, Louisiana “hot” dogs and spicy Cajun chicken strips. Signature New Orleans jazz, blues and soul music & street performers will keep you movin’ from day to night, and don’t miss the marching band as they parade through the bar in celebration. For dessert, finish with banana crepes and banana fritters with cinnamon, prepared right in front of you.

Bluesy tunes, Southern food and a vibrant atmosphere- if it weren’t for the spectacular Sydney Harbour backdrop, you could almost be in New Orleans this February….

  1. Stand upright, knees slightly bent, shoulder width apart,
    holding dumbbells in front of thighs. They are used in yoga,
    Pilates, strength training and aerobics. You would just have to obtain a strong model that is not notorious to fail when having heavier weights.

  2. I every time spent my half an hour to read this website’s articles every day along with a cup of coffee.
