To celebrate the annual ‘Summer at the House’ festivities, Opera Bar has been transformed into Sydney’s Backyard, green turf, an iconic Hills Hoist, picnic tables and authentic veggie patch are all in place and offer a backyard experience right on Sydney Harbour. Sydney’s Backyard is in action from Fri 3 Jan to Fri 31 Jan.

Despite the grey skies, Sydney summer was in full swing last night…guests enjoyed tasty BBQ bites; grilled corn on the cob and barbequed prawns and sipped on Frostie Fruit Slushies and Spiked Homemade Lemonade all made with Australian Tasmanian 666 Vodka and Perth based Gin West Winds.

The venue takes on a true backyard look and feel with green turf laid, an iconic Hills Hoist, picnic tables and an authentic veggie patch. An Aussie BBQ will be on the go from midday through to the evening with tasty barbeque bites including corn on the cob with lime butter and parmesan, pulled lamb shoulder with hummus and salsa and king prawn skewers with romesco and aioli.
