We are very excited to announce two dining walk events as part of this year's Good Food Month on the Village Food Adventures programme! One is a newbie for us and one a repeat of a recent success.
So come and join us on one or both events during the month of October and toast this town's wonderful love of food, cocktails and good times!
Join us for a fun night of high-end cocktails, fine wine and craft beer with matching tasting plates, at three of the best small bars and restaurants in our hood. Discover a jade-green lined bar which is a homage to the bohemian Kings Cross of old; a prohibition era- style cocktail bar hidden in the back streets and a slick restaurant bar offering a fine wine list and seafood on a vibrant laneway. Get a history lesson along the way and celebrate what Potts Point and Kings Cross have to offer.

The Sydney Connection curates private dining walks around our favourite inner city precincts of Surry Hills Darlinghurst and Potts Point on a daily basis. Accompanied by a well-connected guide, our walks are aimed at visitors and Sydneysiders who want to go ‘where the locals go’ for inspiring food, good service and cool interiors.
Wine & dine with a local!
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event? Because we are visiting licensed drinking establishments our wine & dine with a local walks are only for 18+ aged guests.
Are you able to cater for special dietary needs? Yes as long as you tick the appropriate box in the bookings form we are able to cater for most dietary requests including: vegetarian, allergies, gluten intolerance and dairy intolerance.
Are you able to create a walk suitable for disabled guests? Certainly - as long you let us know in advance - we can choose flat terrain and easy acess venues for disabled guests. Just be mindful that the distance between venues can be between 5 -15 minutes of travel so guest will need to be able to manage this distance comfortably especially if part of a larger group.
What should I wear? Although Sydney is a casual & relaxed city we encourage our guests to dress for dinner as we will be dining in some pretty snazzy places. However if you have lost your luggage or are just traveling light we will understand if you turn up just wearing your best Zara outfit or smart jeans and a shirt.
What shoes should I wear? Leave the Lady Gaga heels at home as we will be walking between venues so comfy shoes are best!
