Revel in the city’s creative brilliance as you wander the festival of light and music. Expect grand projections, interactive light displays, and stunning lasers as you explore the city on foot.
For a truly unforgettable experience, begin the festivities with a Mexican feast or end it with a nightcap at Bar Patrón! At the heart of Circular Quay, our modern Mexican restaurant is the clear choice for those who want to be close to the action and breathtaking views.
Heading to Sydney during the VIVID festival? See the city in a new light and discover why Bar Patrón should be your go-to spot for artisanal cocktails, modern Mexican fare, and an energetic atmosphere.
Bar Patrón offers the best seats to enjoy VIVID Sydney
