Throughout October, we are partnering with Hendrick’s to transform everyone's favourite Paddington pub. Celebrating the launch of Midsummer Solstice - a new small-batch, limited-edition gin - we'll having a deeply floral makeover, encouraging you to embrace your curious side...


Dr Lisa Cooper - Sydney-based artist, florist, author and doctor of philosophy - will be transforming our humble Paddo (G)Inn into an immersive floral wonderland, with first-of-their-kind artworks. Cooper has lovingly created a truly extraordinary installation, bringing to life the eternal mystery of nature’s most vivid blooms and a tribute to the sensory powers of the Midsummer Solstice. 




"For eons humans have celebrated the Midsummer Solstice, and now there's so much more to celebrate at Paddo (G)inn."




Our uniquely crafted Midsummer Solstice cocktails are available throughout the venue every day in October. We're also hosting a Most Unusual Bottomless Long Lunch, a very special edition of Inn Talks, a pop-up Gin Bathtub Bar at William Street Festival and many more curious surprises...


As the solstice itself, this takeover will only appear for a fleeting period of time.


Don't wait for the seasons to turn...
