OPEN FOR LUNCH- A Feast for the Senses is more than a Friday lunch outing. Kicking off the summer events season, it is a larger-than-life celebration of what Sydney does best: food, entertainment, and bringing people together. The unique outdoor setting in Sydney’s CBD, with the backdrop of The Hilton hotel and the QVB, is the setting for more than 600 diners to be immersed in the globally recognised hotpot that is Sydney’s diverse dining scene.

Diners will enjoy a three-course meal designed by renowned chef Luke Mangan of glass brasserie at Hilton Sydney including smoked King Ora salmon, roasted spatchcock, and passionfruit meringue, served with live music and unexpected moments of entertainment including headline act Ministry of Sound Orchestra, amazing DJs, hundreds of performers, and lots of surprises.  Sydney-sider Ben Fordham will be the expert MC to guide the day and introduce the acts.
