Once upon a time, Sundays were for brunching, lazing, strolling with friends before a family dinner, perhaps. That was until Soul Bar & Bistro introduced us to its epic ‘PUNCH’ sessions, an elaborate party/lunch (p-unch, get it?) on every last Sunday of the month. Having shown us how to celebrate this sensational weather (‘scuse the cylcone) in fitting fashion, dedicating last day of the week to prolonging the good times, February’s event is once again set to liven things up down on the waterfront.
Seamlessly disguised as a Saturday night, where 1pm feels like 3am (in a good way), Sunday the 25th of this month will be dedicated to delivering a luxuriously abundant sharing-style lunch. Think smoked trevally and fresh tuna starters, spaghetti alla chitarra and slow-cooked Sichuan lamb shoulder mains, finished off with saffron and vanilla ice cream sandwiches for dessert.
This month’s theme will be pool party chic, so we suggest you dress accordingly. Tickets are $85 per person and include a flute of Champagne Mumm on arrival, a four-course sharing style lunch and cocktail tasters. Kicking off at midday and running through till 6pm (and later), you’re guaranteed to end the week on a high.
