View the “Soul of the City” from Four Seasons Hotel Sydney during Vivid

Secure the best view in town to experience the return of Vivid Sydney, 27 May to 18 June, at Sydney’s luxury five-star hotel, Four Seasons Hotel Sydney. From enhanced room packages to a luminated experience at Grain, there is something to spark joy in everyone.

Just steps away from the hotel is the Light Walk which will host the works of 62 light collaborators and 114 light artists from 5 countries, with street installations re-shaping old sights, surprising projection sites, large-scale immersive experiences and never-before-lit buildings adding new sparkle to the city skyline, while revealing the various artistic interpretations of the “soul of the city”.

Enjoy spectacular uninterrupted views of the colourful projections across the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House from the comfort of your own room. Elevate your stay with the Club Lounge Experience package including overnight accommodation in a Premier room and above, with afternoon canapes and a breakfast buffet in Lounge 32, and valet parking, starting from AU$530 per night*. For more information and reservations, visit www.fourseasons.com/sydney.

Before heading out and exploring Vivid at street level, dine at the hotel’s award-winning Mode Kitchen & Bar by Executive Restaurant Chef Francesco Mannelli.

Francesco and his team have created a Vivid-inspired menu featuring a bright purple beetroot risotto, a steamed Hapuka with yellow saffron, and a colourful dessert to end the evening. The menu is available throughout the entire festival; two courses for $75 or three courses for $90 per person. For reservations, please visit www.modekitchenandbar.com.au.

The window to Sydney’s soul can be found at Grain, overlooking George Street and Circular Quay, while the craftsmen behind the bar shake illuminating cocktails. To celebrate, Grain is digging into its inner artist and will have Sydney artist, James Patrick, create a beautifully glowing Vivid drawing along the exterior window. Guests are invited to take pictures with the stunning backdrop and search for the hidden art to win a prize.

Glowing cocktails at Grain include:

Contessa #1 Bombay Sapphire Gin | Select Aperitivo | Mancino Bianco Ambrato Vermouth | Beetroot cordial
Navy Cross Bombay Sapphire Gin | Rye Malt | Citrus Cordial | Tonic Water
Royal Fortune Plantation Stiggins Fancy Pineapple Rum | Plantation Xaymaca Jamaican Rum | Disaronno | Grand Marnier | Citrus | Bitters

Four Seasons Hotel Sydney’s façade will also feature as a backdrop to a major Vivid Sydney light projection across the cityscape, illuminating the building each evening from 6:00pm to 11:00pm.
