The East Village Hotel in Darlinghurst has transformed its terrace rooftop into a pink Winter Garden, inspired by the Christmas markets of Europe.

Drenched in pink flood light & thousands of fairy lights, there’s a warm drinks menu with mulled wine and cider, specialty warm meads and gin hot toddies. Happy hour (two-for-one) is 5-7pm

On the food front there’s a selection of Christmas market-inspired items like currywurst, smoked deep fried camembert and Nutella waffles. Our vote goes to the four-cheese fondue, spiked with maraschino liqueur and served with assorted veg, cured meats and bread for dipping.

Local’s tip: This cute pokie-free venue also has one of the best Sydney skyline views in Eastside!
