Lighting the night sky…VIVID 2019

Lighting the night sky…VIVID 2019

VIVID is not just a yearly festival, it is far more than just lights and animation. It’s a culture and a calling for creativity and inspiration. It brings alive conditions of the world and animates our human desires and behaviours. This year, Darling harbour showcases Robot SPACELand, an imaginative future where civilisation rises from post-industrial wreckages. Designed with electro-automotive super robots which have been sent to build a brighter and greener future. Their colours and sounds bring to life a child’s imagination whilst delivering a message of protecting what we have left of our world.

VIVID Festivities at Nick

To get into the spirit of VIVID, Nick’s group will be participating in Cockle Bay’s “Mushroomed” installation with themed cocktails exclusive to VIVID. Served in a lit glass, our cocktails “Peachy”, “Baby Blue” and “Midnight Glow” are the perfect addition to your harbourside festivities. You’ll find our celebratory cocktails at Nick’s Seafood, Adria and I’m Angus. Be sure to check out the Mushroomed installation just outside Adria on Cockle Bay Wharf and let your imagination run wild.

We love vivid and the excitement it brings to Darling Harbour. We see how the installations brighten the faces of its viewers and create a world of wonder in their eyes. Make VIVID extra special with a dining experience in one of our harbourside venues. All offering a perfect view of SPACELand, the kids will not be disappointed. Indulge in our Lobster special from Nick’s Seafood, our succulent Tomahawk steak from I’m Angus, perhaps our giant pork ribs from Adria or our pizza varieties at Cyren. Spoil the kids with our special kids meals, all served with their choice of soft drink and ice-cream.

For the Months of May and June, Nick’s group is offering 10% off group bookings across all venues. Enjoy the lit skies and the VIVID hype from the best seats in Darling Harbour. Book your harbourside table, enjoy unlimited drinks, devour gorgeous foods and immerse yourself in the light spectacular and evening fireworks across Darling Harbour. We can’t think of a better way to get together with friends or family!
