Oyster Festival @ The Morrison Bar
The Morrison’s annual Oyster Festival is back for its fourth year running and safe to say it’s better than ever!
Overseen by our Culinary Director Sean Connolly, we want to celebrate Australia’s great seafood producers, and celebrate we have. Ensuring there’s no shortage of mollusc morsels for oyster enthusiasts, our oyster themed menu has it all, from Oysters Rockefeller, to Southern Fried Oyster Tacos, Chowder and Chips and the infamous Carpetbag Steak.
Where to start?
Smack bang in the middle of our $5 Happy Hour in main bar, between 6-7pm every night of August we welcome you to dine on Sydney’s freshest oysters, at only $1 a pop! That’s right folks, the $1 Oyster Hour is back, so roll up those sleeves and tuck in to a bivalve bounty…
We have an array of juicy drink offers available this month, why not pop a Piper-Heidsieck and enjoy its bouquet of springtime aromas of citrus, apple and pear while you slurp down a dozen juicy Smoky Bay pacifics? Available by the glass for $17 or bottle for $99.
Fancy yourself an expert? Test your knowledge and book a spot in our Champagne + Oyster Masterclass, on Tuesday 23rd August hosted by wine buff Ned Goodwin.
Tickets are $45 per person: bit.ly/champagnemasterclass
Whether you’re old fashioned or prefer it shaken and stirred, we have the perfect tipple for you: pre-batched cocktails by the bottle for only $18. A smoky sweet Old Fashioned with Lagavulin 8 or a classic Vodka Martini with Ciroc and a twist. Sit and sip from the bottle or pour over a glass of ice and add a peel twist.
Wine a little and pair your freshly shucked rock oysters with a trio of wines – the Ophalum Albarino, Crawford River Riesling and the Tyrrells Stevens Semillon are our recommendation. A 75ml glass of each for $25 is a delightful treat and an ideal way to start your night.
Celebrate Lagavulin’s 200th Anniversary and enjoy a complimentary whisky dropper when you order a dozen oysters!
We aren’t just passionate about supporting our local sustainable producers, but also our local designers. This Oyster Festival we invited design students, past and present, from the Whitehouse Institute of Design to create couture and homeware pieces to display in our Conservatory. Vote for your favourite piece and go into the draw to win a pearl necklace by Australian family owned jewellery company Linney’s (RRP $850). Vote here: http://bit.ly/OysterFestVoting
Whatever floats your boat we have it covered! So come on down and find a seat, our doors are always open…
