Spring has brought a renewed sense of fun and excitement to Blue. “As the weather warms up, so does the action at Blue,” said Sanjay Umashankar, general manager of Blue, A Taj Hotel, Sydney.
After a beautiful refurbishment of the rooms and common areas at Blue and let us not forget about Waterbar receiving the 2012 “Bar of the Year” nod from the Tourism Accommodation Australia Awards, the hotel is in the mood for celebrating and is inviting all its guests to join in on the fun.
With the Sydney International Food Festival starting in October, the Waterbar is hosting mixologists from all over Sydney to mix up delicious cocktails and canapés . If guests want a delectable treat made especially by the renowned mixologists at the Waterbar, then the “Sweet Sensation” is the perfect choice. Crafted with Chambord, vodka, caramel liquor, grapefruit and pineapple juices served tall over crushed ice, and perfectly paired with a Parisian prawn ceviche canapé with lemon, shallot, thyme, avocado and a berry coulis.
For jetsetters who enjoy health and fitness, Blue now has an exciting and healthy way to experience the breathtaking sights of Sydney. Blue is now the only hotel in Sydney with bikes. Blue’s new bikes are used exclusively by guests to ride around Woolloomooloo and its stunning surroundings. Two vintage style “fixie” bikes will be at the front of the hotel and can be booked, even with a picnic lunch.
Blue has an activity for everyone this spring, and for those who love sports the Waterbar is hosting an extravagant Melbourne Cup event.
