Drink, Eat, Events, Play, Sydney / 16 October 2019

Love live tunes and whiskey? Head to Vic on the Park this weekend for the free Jameson House of Rounds festival.

It’s a beloved Inner West watering hole. Vic on the Park has been the go-to spot for punters looking to kick back with mates over a drink. Located in the heart of Marrickville, it’s a destination that’s no stranger to a good time. And this weekend, they’ve teamed up with Jameson to bring Sydneysiders a free one-day festival of whiskey, live tunes and food.

Jameson House of Rounds kicks off on Saturday, October 19th for one jam-packed day of fun. The beloved venue is set to come alive with live music all day long, featuring the likes of artists Carmoflage Rose, Ziggy Ramo, Body Type and Godtet plus DJ sets from The Delta Riggs and Beryl Streep.

And that’s just the start of the entertainment offering at this festival. Stop by the Sweatshop stall to nab your own on-demand custom merch designed by the music world’s beloved Sydney-based illustrator Sindy Sinn. Plus, head to Vic on the Park’s carpark to join in an open-to-all basketball competition to try your hand at shooting a few hoops.

To keep punters happy all day long, Vic on the Park will also be hosting a series of outdoor food stalls serving up all your favourite pub-grub classics. Make sure to scout out the all-day BBQ stall serving a selection of Jameson-infused sauces.

Consider yourself a whiskey connoisseur? Try your hand at a blind-folded sensory tasting experience (hosted in a secret location) for the chance to test your whiskey knowledge. If you’d rather cut straight to the drink, a whole range of Jameson-focused mixes will be available to purchase on the day.

To support the local community, Jameson will be providing a $1 throwback on every Jameson drink sold, with all proceeds going towards Addison Road Community Centre (a local not-for-profit supporting social justice, arts and culture since 1976 through a nine-acre heritage site for community use in the Inner West).
