After Dark: A Winter Solstice Celebration takes place on Friday 23 June.
Whether you’re a fan of winter or wish it would go away, you can’t deny the beauty of the Winter Solstice. Also known as midwinter, the Winter Solstice occurs when the Earth’s poles has its maximum tilt away from the Sun. It happens twice yearly, once in the middle and once at the end. The Winter Solstice is the day with the least daylight and the longest night of the year!
To celebrate the annual event, this Winter will see the culmination of one of Geelong’s most exciting collaborations, with the launch of ‘After Dark’ at Federal Mills. 1915 Restaurant and Bar has joined with Anther Spirits to create an innovative, culinary celebration of Winter Solstice, set in the evening of Friday 23rd June, 2023.
Keep up with the latest food and booze news across the region here.
The two established icons of Geelong’s food and drink scene are inviting patrons to join them in celebrating the longest night of the year, by way of a delicious 3-course candle-lit dinner at 1915 paired with finely crafted Anther Spirits cocktails. The menu will have killer combinations of earth and fire.
Dinner will be crafted by Chef Andy Symeonakis from 1915, inspired by the traditions of Winter Solstice while the gin cocktails to match are designed specifically by Anther Spirits Chief Distiller, Derv McGowan.
Tickets are $145 each and include a fiery gin cocktail on arrival, a decadent three-course meal and three drinks to pair perfectly with the food – either three gin cocktails or three wines.
Indulge in some ancient traditions, bask in the candlelight, connect with community, and be surprised at what the Solstice can provoke for you!
It all goes down from 6:30pm on Friday 23 June, 2023 at 1915 Restaurant & Bar, 33 Mackey Street, North Geelong. Tickets are on sale now here.
