The secret venue has been pulled straight from a fantasy realm, and preludes a much bigger chapter from The D.L.M. Hiding in plain sight…concealed behind the bureaucratic frontage of 300 Barangaroo Ave, on the Corner of Exchange Place, a unique fantasy world awaits. Promising ethereal surrounds, tempting tipples and quirky resident entertainers, the magical bar is all set to shimmer into existence Friday 27th May – Saturday 18th June.

Plunge into a fantastical realm of plush blue velvet and settle into a mythical cosmos. Sip on supernatural libations from Creativity Project, the cocktail company renowned for telling a tale with every sip. The beverage list is a mixture of fun and adventure. Cocktails include a range of Martinis using Hickson Rd gin and Mai Tais with Plantation rum. The D.L.M will also be stocked with Australian beer and sour beer from Lord Howe Island Brewing Co and Yalumba wines.
