Wine, cocktails, breath taking views and delicious food… does it get any better than that? This Summer, InterContinental Sydney remains at the forefront of innovative wine and dining experiences with two bespoke pop-up laneway dining events launching for the festive season. Introducing Festive Street Dining – four nights of conceptual dining at InterContinental Sydney!
As one of Sydney’s most anticipated temporary locations, the heritage sandstone enclaves of the hotel’s Macquarie Street façade will transform into a pop-up laneway where the InterContinental Sydney culinary team will experiment with a seasonal menu and new techniques to mark summer and the silly season. From the unconventional and glamorous setting of the semi-secret laneway, to the heights of Supper Club on level 32, the Festive Street Dining pop-up is a progressive dinner uncovering rare glimpses of Sydney’s sites in summer.
The five-course degustation dinner from the award-winning 117 dining team unearths the best in local produce. Dishes include seaweed-cured Hiramasa, dry-aged beef strip-loin and 117 dining’s signature dessert, Sweet Passion, from Head Pastry Chef Simon Veauvy (my mouth is watering just thinking about it!). Each course is expertly paired with select wines from the Bimbadgen winery estate before diners will revel in the heights of Supper Club with the signature cocktail of the season, Golden Whistler, overlooking 270 degrees of uninterrupted heavenly harbour views. (Seriously, the view is incredible!)
Available for an exclusive four nights only, the Festive Street Dining series is themed with wreaths of Christmas lights, bold mood lighting and a DJ for the ultimate ambience.
Pricing and availability: $159.00 per person; available 1st December, 2nd December, 8th December and 10th December only.

Festive Laneway Experience – strictly one night only
In true pop-up style, the Festive Laneway Experience will activate for one-night only with a four-course degustation dinner by 117 dining and paired wines from Bimbadgen. As with the five-course Festive Street Dining evenings, guests will gain an exclusive invitation to Supper Club on level 32 for a Santa-inspired cocktail.
Executive Sous Chef, Stephen Lech, said: “Pop-up dining has been a valuable fixture of restaurant innovation for quite some time. Chefs can test new concepts, pairings and new techniques in a completely reinvigorated environment. Our philosophy at 117 dining is focused on seasonality and innovation and the themed ambience of the laneway is the prime location to bring these flavours to life.”
Pricing and availability: $149.00 per person; available 9th December only.
