On 21st September, Rogue Homme celebrated a milestone moment paying tribute to its first five years with a celebration that resonated with the style, heritage and understated luxury present at the core of Arrnott Olssen’s iconic lifestyle blog. InterContinental Sydney was proud to host the season’s hottest rooftop event, with 120 of Sydney’s elite and industry partners uniting to toast to Rogue Homme’s success atop #levelthirtytwo.
With key event partners Grey Goose and Hayman’s Gin on board to bring the creative vision to life, the elusive Supper Club was transformed with signature cocktails and a dramatic Grey Goose centrepiece to mark the occasion. Guests arrived at the hotel’s pop-up Florist bar which was reimagined to transport guests back to the venue’s origins in the 1851 Treasury Building. Designed to reflect the innovation of modern luxury, the converted florist shop was a styled production with garden-party theming, vintage watering cans, garden gnomes and a canopy of fairy lights. You couldn’t miss the rows of teddy-bear glass jars holding resident mixologist John Toubia’s twist on Hayman’s signature Gin & Jay cocktail, nor the candle-lit flora installation designed by Fresh Creative Styling.
As the ambience shifted, guests were escorted via private elevators up to level 32 where the elusive Supper Club emerged. Entering a candle-lit haven floating above the Harbour, guests were met with the venue’s legendary 270-degree views stretching from the Harbour Bridge to Sydney Opera House and beyond. In signature Supper Club style, the exclusive rooftop bar and lounge were themed to seasonal perfection, showcasing fresh blooms shaded in dark red hues and a stunning long-run centrepiece featuring a luxe line-up of cheese & charcuterie, grapes, figs, seasonal fruits – and of course, Grey Goose highlights.
Celebrating in style among rooftop lights and cocktail dreams, live performances by Rodd Richard, Romy Black and ‘man of the moment’, Arrnott Olssen were matched with a journey through three bespoke Grey Goose cocktails included the halo cocktail of the evening, the Le Grand Fizz. As the night progressed, the guest-list spilled out onto the wrap-around balcony to take in incredible vantage points of the Eastern Suburbs, Royal Botanic Gardens and the bustling cityscape below.
