Tuesday, 17 May 2016:
Avatar, Willy Wonka, Star Wars and Marvel fans rejoice – The Argyle at The Rocks will be turned into four consecutive Parallel Universes during Vivid that will rock your futuristic socks off.
Enjoy 23 immersive nights as futuristic music and kaleidoscopic lights collide in an otherworldly paradise.
From state of the art light shows, themed roaming performers, mouth-watering Tex-Mex food, a special Vivid cocktail, live bands and top-line DJs, The Argyle has something for everyone.
The whole family will be entertained each Movie Monday when The Argyle’s iconic cobblestone courtyard will be decked out with astro turf and deck chairs and guests can watch the free weekly movie with complimentary popcorn. For a pre-Vivid food fix there is kid-friendly Tex-Mex at The Argyle, as well as child-friendly meals at neighbouring restaurants El Camino Cantina and Munich Brauhaus.
Pre-vivid dining from 5pm is also on offer at Saké Restaurant & Bar and The Cut Bar & Grill, which are located in The Argyle precinct, as well as Café Ananas which is situated in the hustle and bustle of Circular Quay.
For those looking for a post-Vivid visit after party The Argyle, with two floors, six bars and revolving line-up of great DJs each weekend, is the place to be. The Lilikoi cocktail ($19) comprising Belvedere Pink Grapefruit, Aperol, raspberry and passionfruit will be offered throughout the Vivid celebrations.
