Everyone has a bevvy of choice but we’re partial to the odd gin. If you are too, you’ll want to head straight to Bondi for a 10-day gin-soaked fiesta. Bondi Liquor Co. is launching the inaugural Bondi Festival of Gin and all our regular haunts right from Corner House to Neighbourhood and Bikini Bar are joining the party. On from April 14 to May 1, the festival will take over a number of venues and you can expect entertainment, canapes, beachside parties and of course, endless gin.
Bondi Festival of Gin
Kicking off on Thursday April 14, a number of free and ticketed events will take over Bondi and we’ve sussed out some highlights for you.
Start your long weekend right with a launch party by festival hosts Bondi Liquor Co. on Easter Thursday. For the ticket price of $55, you can get Easter eggs spiked with house made coffee vodka, entertainment, a drink, canapes, and a take-home bottle of gin.

On Easter Sunday, The Beach Road Hotel will host a Bondi Liquor Co. Gin Garden Pop-Up, highlighting creative cocktails, entertainment and a special Easter prize wheel in the courtyard.
April 20 will see Corner House hosting a special Gin & Food Dinner with all three courses matching dinner. Gin-ius. There’s also a Bondi Bartender Cocktail Challenge on April 24 where Bondi’s perennial fave bartenders will create exclusive cocktails for guests who can then vote their favourite.
