It’s Emma Floyd’s 40th birthday and she has decided to celebrate this milestone in quite a unique way. We have been invited to an evening at the Slide Bar in Darlinghurst. Not quite sure what to expect we scrub up early and pick up our friends Helen and Harvey on the way to the City. We have an easy drive in on a warm evening sand arrive on time as the party is just beginning.
Slide’s signature serving is its unique degustation menu night called El Circo where guests are treated to a nine-course meal while being entertained by a variety of acts in between courses. Emma had booked the mezzanine level for her big night out and we had our own selection of yummy hord’oeuvres washed down with drinks from the bar conveniently located on the same level. As we socialised and chatted with friends, we looked down on amazing acts from trapeze artists, contortionists, and other circus performers – a kaleidoscope of colours that flashed by just metres away from where we stood. The night ended with the tables pulled back and the diners taking to the floor. It was a great night and a fun way to celebrate turning 40!
