Helios Rising, Bivacco’s epic new party series is here, where superb food, cocktails, music and dancing collide

This event has been postponed until further notice

In our opinion, there’s nothing like a convivial party or two to see us through winter. It’s clearly a sentiment shared by the fine hospitality purveyors at Viaduct Harbour’s Bivacco, who will be kicking off their inaugural party series on the 6th of May with Helios Rising (and more on the horizon).

This exciting event is calling for all attendees to dust off their dancing shoes and prepare for an evening of utterly delicious food, satiating cocktails and of course, epic music and entertainment. Curated by the inimitable musical talents of Nathan Haines and Jaimie Webster Haines, who have called on renowned DJ Dan Lywood (from London via Sydney and with over three decades of DJ experience) to take to the decks, Helios Rising will set the tone for a fun winter season.

If you want to immerse yourself in the full experience, you won’t want to miss out on Helios Rising’s VIP tickets, which are $150 per person and include a four-course meal with a flute of Moët & Chandon on arrival and an Altos margarita. For guests with these tickets, the event will start from 6:30pm, although spaces are limited, so be quick. Otherwise, if you’d rather just join for the latter portion of the night, party tickets are $65 per person and include a flute of Moët & Chandon, or an Altos Margarita or a Peroni on arrival, as well as a series of aperitivo bites, served from 9pm until 10:30pm. For guests with these tickets, entry will be from 9pm when the music will kick off with a live set by Nathan Haines and Jaimie Webster Haines, who will then give way to Dan Lywood until close.

Set to be an evening to remember, we highly suggest getting a group together and securing tickets before they all disappear. That said, we are also giving one lucky Denizen the chance to win six party tickets to Bivacco’s Helios Rising, including drinks on arrival, a magnum of Moët & Chandon and aperitivo bites. Enter by filling in the form here, or see below.
