The Sandwiches festive season

Come celebrate 3 special events for the Sandwiches festive season…

Thursday 16

Musical Chairs

Sandwiches would like your help in celebrating the launch of Outdoor Area.

With the assistance of Michael Melville Architects, we have worked long and hard on a positive solution to the outdoor needs of our clientele (with the new smoking laws and all), so on Thursday night we are celebrating the launch of what we have nick-named the “Took-tooks” (as they look like the bugie-seat of a Chinese Took-took). These revolutionary custom built outdoor booths are able to shelter patrons in any and all weather conditions, and are an exciting and colourful addition to the Sandwiches frontage (positioned on our licensed area on the Kent Terrace footpath below Clemenger BBDO).

This will be teamed up with a night a funky sounds from the “Musical Chairs” DJs Jack Uzi, Hollywood Alphamale, The Uptown Duo and Havana Club cocktails.

Free Entry
