The New Orleans Mardi Gras is one of the worlds’ legendary festivals. But, don’t think, because we live on the other side of the world, we can’t partake in the festivities here in Oz.
The Island Bar @ Cocktatoo Island is hosting an Aussie take on this iconic festival, embracing the warm southern hospitality and setting it against a backdrop of our very own iconic Sydney harbour.
Expect to be transformed into a world of decadence, Creole style.
You’ll be drinking Maker’s Mark Mint Juleps, Cruzan Rum Hurricanes and other classic New Orleans cocktails. You’ll be eating from Food Carts serving unique Louisiana cuisine such as Creole pizzas, Louisiana ‘ot dogs’, spicy cajun chicken strips and banana crepes and fritters. You’ll be listening to signature New Orleans jazz, blues and soul music. You’ll be watching street performers and you’ll even experience a marching band parade!
So, hop on a ferry and embrace the bluesy tunes, Southern food and vibrant atmosphere for yourself!
Party on Bourbon Street, The Island Bar, Cockatoo Island
15 – 17 February 2013 – From 12.30pm till late
