Last Friday Night an intimate selection of Sydney’s Cocktail Enthusiasts were treated to a wonderful night of drinking and decadence. The Ivy’s Den hosted the event as part of the World Cocktail Week Celebrations and with Head mixologist Mikey Enright and Tim Phillips (2009 UK Bartender of the Year ) creating unique twists on early evening cocktails there was plenty to celebrate.
