Foley Street is located in the heart of Darlo and is home to five creative businesses working across art, design, fashion, jewellery and home wares on the newly paved laneway. Running between Oxford & Burton Streets off Crown this is inner city Sydney's latest craft & design shopping destination.
Where we are starting our evening with a fun cocktail from Pocket Bar, was already a successful online design emporium before landing in Foley Street via the City of Sydney's Creative Spaces program on Oxford Street.
The store / gallery space features artwork, jewellery and homewares by both local Sydney artists and talented regional designers. Founded by visual merchandiser Jess Polaschek, The Tribe aims to provide a platform for emerging creatives to develop their brand and showcase their work to a wider market. The Tribe’s Foley Street space also hosts a variety of exhibitions and workshops.
Paper artist Jeff McCann will be giving a short talk on his practice whilst guests sip their yummy cocktail.
Established in 2009 as one of the first small bars in Darlo' Pocket Bar has built a reputation over the past eight years for fabulous cocktails and tasty bites. Set in a former old mechanics garage the space has an inner city vibe - with graphic comic-style street art on the walls and comfy old chesterfields to lounge in while you wait for your crew to arrive.
Mr Charlie Ford, Pocket's Resident Mixologist has created two very special cocktail concoctions exclusively for Crafty Dining. Expect bright colours and fun flavours to kick-start your night! Woo Hoo!
