It’s finally getting warmer here in Sydney and the good people at Merivale are going to help usher in this beautiful weather with a new Ivy Pool Club look this month, inspired by the Italian Riviera. To celebrate this they are dubbing next week, 19-23 October as “Italian Festival Week”.
Make the next dreaded Monday (19th) a day to look forward to and surprise your date with an intimate but laid back date night by the pool side after work. There will be a list of classic Italian cocktails to choose from and live music from the Sinatra era. Of course pizza and pasta is a must on the menu. Starts from 5pm till late.
On Tuesday, there’s a banquet put on by Uccello that shouldn’t be missed if you love Italian food. Enjoy this shared banquet of authentic Italian fare and fine wine with live music and entertainment in the background. There are three sittings available for this $65 five course dinner which includes cocktail on arrival – 6.30pm, 7pm and 7.30pm.
Wednesday sees the Pool Club further transformed into the piazzas and market places of Tuscany. There will be stalls for Italian BBQ, cheese and charcuterie, pizza and gelato. Cocktails can be enjoyed with live music and roving entertainment. Entry is free but numbers are very limited, register here to get in.Sneak out of the office on Thursday or Friday and treat yourself to a nice long lunch at the Pool Club, 12-3pm. Or better yet, convince your boss to come along so he can pay. Some of Merivale’s best chefs will be preparing a poolside BBQ feast that will probably put you in a serious food coma. If you can’t make it to the lunch then leave work early and go for a pre-dinner drink starting from 3pm.
Get yourself down to La Dolce Pool Club, Ivy Pool Club, Level 4, Ivy, 320 George Street.
