Italy, Japan, Bali, Palm Springs… destinations we can only dream of visiting right now. But with Australian Venue Co’s Staycations across five venues in Sydney, guests can escape for a while through internationally inspired food, drinks and experiences – no passport required.

Staycation pop-ups are available now and will be live until late February 2021 at The Rook, Manly Wine, The Winery, Bungalow 8 and Cargo.

There’ll be a daily Aperitivo Hour from 4.30-5.30 and Bottomless Brunch on Saturdays and Sundays with 90 minutes of Quincy Seltzers, spritz and delicious antipasto spread for $69pp.

Or guests can venture to Italian wine country and soak up the Tuscan vibes at The Winery where both the wine garden and terrace have been transformed into the go-to spot for Italian inspired alfresco dining in collaboration with Tempus Two. Aperitivo Hour is where guests can enjoy cold carafe’s of freshly poured prosecco with antipasti board for $55, or purchase by the glass with complementary Prosecco Gelati made by local artisian Mapo. Bookings can be made in advance on the floral terrace or garden gazebos for a long lunch for $59pp, with the option to add two hours of free flowing prosecco and rose for $39pp.

Beachside Tokyo is where Manly Wine will take guests. Think Instagram moments with stunning installations of lush Sakura Blossom florals, unbeatable ocean views, a delicious menu of Japanese fusion bites and limited edition sips. Guests can enjoy bottomless Sakura Spring Brunch every Saturday with bottomless Roku Gin Spritz and brunch bites with a Japanese twist, $79pp. Then on Wednesday’s there’ll be Bottomless Dumplings from 5pm with pork & mushroom, Peking duck and vegetable gyoza with sauces and sides for $30pp and a $29pp upgrade gets guests bottomless beer, wine and cider.

The sands of Seminyak are calling at Bungalow 8. The perfect spot to soak up the sun, relaxing on daybeds sipping coconuts and bintangs with epic views of the water. The Day Bed Package will provide two hours of Prosecco and Bintangs from a personal esky with delicious shared dishes for $79pp. Saturdays are sorted thanks to a bottomless brunch of bottomless Bintangs & Prosecco fountain and Bali beach club inspired menu, $65pp. While Sunday Sessions feature spit-roasted suckling pig and live music.

For those who missed their festival fix this year, a taste of Coachella is coming to Cargo Bar!

The Cargo-Chella Brunch will take place each Saturday with Bloody Marys, rose sangria jugs and brunch item, $59pp. The Booth Packages will be great for small groups, the GA package includes cocktail jugs on arrival, pizza to share and exclusive booth space at $35pp, while the VIP package has bottomless cocktails, wine and beer, bottomless snacking and exclusive booth space is perfect for groups of 10 at $80pp.
