There’s no shortage of interesting things to do around Sydney this weekend, nor is there a lack of new restaurants and bars to help you keep your plans flowing along nicely. Here are five things to throw on your to-do list for this Friday 29th Jan to Sunday 31st Jan, from the highest silent disco in town to an immersive cinema experience of Jaws.
Eye Live Silent Disco (Sydney CBD)
Eye Live is the highest silent disco to ever hit Sydney, perched right up there near the top of Sydney Tower Eye. Kicking off at 9pm this Friday, the party will take place 250 meters above Sydney, offering a 360 degree view across the city while three different DJ’s broadcast over three channels.

Potts Point’s newest speakeasy has been gaining in popularity since it’s recent opening, serving up some good, GF fried chicken in honey butter, and some even better cocktails, like the Witch of Kings Cross or the Tiki’s Hummingbird with homemade sherbert rim and orange blossom. They are open from 4pm to 1am on Friday and Saturday, and 12pm to 11pm on Sunday. For far they only have an Instagram, but it looks so damn good that it should be more than enough info to coax you into a weekend visit.
Address: 175 Victoria Street, Potts Point.
Pub Life Kitchen x Barrio Chino x Deus Ex Machina Pop Up (Camperdown)
You only have a few days left to make the most of the greatest burger pop-up to ever hit Sydney’s inner-west. Pub Life Kitchen and Barrio Chino have been holed up in Camperdown’s Deus Ex Machina all summer now, churning out some truly exceptional burgers, sides, and shakes. They’ll be wrapping it up and finishing their residency at the end of this month so if you haven’t been down to experience the glory yet then hop to it!

JAWS on the water (Andrew “Boy” Charlton Pool)
The creative team at Golden Age Cinema are putting on an immersive cinema experience as part of Art & About Sydney this Friday and Saturday, and the idea is pretty terrifying. Both nights will see outdoor screenings of Jaws as viewers float in one of Sydney’s most popular pools by the harbour. Up for forty inflatable boats will be available to hire and there will be a few special guest speakers as well (like an expert on shark conservation and a special guest chef to talk about sustainable seafood). There’s a special menu of craft beers and handpicked wines floating around as well. Doors open at 7:30pm

Sunday Sundown at Coogee Pavilion (Coogee)
As part of Merivale’s Sunday Sundown series, the gorgeous rooftop at Coogee Pavilion will host Dustin Tebbutt, Bluejuice DJs, and Gordi, not only bringing in some awesome local live music but presenting the atmosphere to match, with the sun setting of Coogee. It’s free entry and fun times, what more could you want?
