Mushroomed, Cockle Bay Wharf

For connoisseurs

Sit back and sip on an exclusive boutique cocktail at Cockle Bay Wharf. Each of our venues is serving up a special libation or sundae to celebrate #CockleBayWharfMushroomed. Learn more about the quirky cocktails in our blog here.

For the adventurers

With live music available seven days a week at Cockle Bay Wharf, there’s always something for an adventurous spirit.

Start your night at Tokio Hotel, settle in for the live music and watch the sun go down before exploring the immersive mushroom forest. Lighting up every night from 6pm.

If you’re eager for more melodies, visit on a Wednesday or Friday and head down to Baia The Italian, order an espresso martini and soak up the atmosphere. Once you’re ready for new sounds shuffle down the wharf to Tokio Hotel and take in the awesome glow of Vivid as you walk.

For chocoholics

Take our glowing martini glass, blend some chocolatey goodness and you’ve got the perfect sundae. From the master chocolatiers at Lindt, try the exclusive Vivid Sundae, only available at Cockle Bay Wharf.

For the foodies

Look out onto spectacular Cockle Bay Wharf and Darling Harbour from the Café del Mar terrace. Situated on the rooftop, you’ll have the perfect view of the city’s illuminations. During the Vivid festival period they’ll be serving a special rooftop menu.
