Curated content via Concrete Playground See your name in lights this New Year. Want to ring in New Year with Young Henrys, picnic rugs, smoked meats, massages and an entire dessert garden by Anna Polyviou? Your NYE dream date might just be the new harbourside NYE party New Year’s Eve Above the Harbour. Taking place at the south-eastern side of Circular Quay in the Tarpeian Precinct, NYEATH will take over a spacious site adjacent to the Royal Botanical Gardens, complete with green, rolling lawn perfectly positioned for those multimillion-dollar Sydney fireworks. It’s a more laidback NYE party than others in the area, with picnic rugs and a lavish outdoor dining experience from the culinary team behind the five-star Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney. Ticketholders can feast all evening, with four pop-up food stands planned for the night. There’ll be Asian-inspired street food, American-style smokehouse meats, fresh seafood and salads, and (the clincher) an entire dessert carnival by the hotel’s celebrated executive pastry chef Anna Polyviou. Of course, you’ll be after a bev or two to ring in the new year, and everyone’s favourite Newtonian brewers Young Henrys are on board with their beloved craft beers. The YH crew will be serving a special batch of session beer, a fruity pale ale exclusively available on the night. The event’s meant to take the stress out of hectic Sydney NYE parties, so you don’t have to get there early, fight crowds, pack picnics or smuggle booze. There’ll be a hair and makeup station for both ladies and gents, alongside masseuses available all the way until midnight. You’ll probably see midnight more invigorated than when you arrived — instead of drunkenly, tiredly missing the whole bloody thing. Tickets to NYE on the Harbour are $395 including the unlimited five-star food & beverage package, but we’re giving one reader and a friend the chance to go along for free — and to name Young Henrys’ special NYE Above the Harbour beer. To be in the running, subscribe to the Concrete Playground newsletter (if you haven’t already), then email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name you’d give to the beer and why. In addition to naming rights and your 2x GA tickets, you’ll also get to take home a case of Young Henrys tinnies. Entries close November 22, and the winner will be drawn on November 23.
