West Hotel Sydney Lights Up Vivid 2023

West Hotel Sydney, Curio Collection by Hilton is embracing Vivid 2023 with a series of colourful and immersive activations. From May 26 to June 17, the hotel will be illuminated with vibrant lighting installations, a series of themed cocktails and a bespoke Vivid menu.

Located a short walk from the Vivid light walk, West Hotel is a perfect base for those coming into the city during the festival.

West Hotel’s lush garden atrium and bar, Solander Dining and Bar, will come to life with a series of kaleidoscopic florals, neon signs and lights that will provide the perfect backdrop for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle, whilst still embracing the fun.

To celebrate, Solander Dining and Bar will serve up a series of multi-coloured, Vivid-themed cocktails. These include the Enchanted Forest, a delightful blend of Pernod Absinthe and apple liqueur. For those wanting something a little bolder, the Chromatic Cosmos has been created from Absolute vodka, Cointreau, lime, cranberry juice and Curacao. The third flavourful cocktail is the Midori Mountain, a vibrant green cocktail created from Midori liqueur, Malibu rum, pineapple juice and coconut cream.

The hotel’s Head Chef, Joel Robinson, has curated a selection of mouth-watering bar bites. Highlights include whipped cauliflower seared scallops served in a burnt butter, truffle shoestring fries, jalapeño poppers filled with a coriander cream cheese, salumi miso, fried Seoul wings with chili caramel and caramelised mini chorizo.

Alongside the Solander Vivid menu, a special accommodation package will be available to guests from now until June 17.

“We’re thrilled to be a part of Vivid this year and are delighted to offer our guests a unique and memorable way to experience this incredible event,” said Nathan Kengike, Hotel Manager.
