Disaronno is Adding some Spark to Sydney’s Nightlife
This August, something exciting is happening at Spice Trader, nestled cozily within the historic Porter House Hotel. They’re teaming up with the Italian liqueur, Disaronno, to add a new spark to Sydney’s nightlife.
In a city centre where options for post-dinner cocktails are limited, these two esteemed establishments with rich histories have joined hands to craft a whole month of special evenings. It’s all about giving those who love staying out late a reason to rejoice. They’re putting together a unique cocktail menu that’s perfect for sipping as you soak up the cozy vibes of the winter night. And to add rhythm to the experience, the talented DJ Alice Q will be spinning tunes.
Prepare your taste buds for a treat because Spice Trader and Disaronno have created a late-night menu that’s a blend of classics and inventive new concoctions. Savour drinks like The Godfather, The Italian Gentleman, Espresso Di Saronno, and Is Dis A Tiramisu… just to name a few. It’s going to be a month filled with delicious sips, great music, and the kind of nights that turn into cherished memories.

Natty Workwear Keeps the Worksite Inclusive
At Man of Many, we’re all about inclusivity, so when we stumbled across Melbourne-born, Burleigh-operated workwear brand Natty this week, we had to spread the good word. Launched in 2020, the label was founded on the vision to encourage pride in the trade, with a large (and rapidly growing) community who are collectively leaving a positive impact on the trade and its people. Dropping the Ice Break-loving stereotype and shining a new light on the progressive tradespeople building Australia’s future, Natty Workwear is one of those refreshing brands you can’t help but smile at.
From its long list of female ambassadors to the change-making campaigns that champion the tradies in our lives, Natty is changing the way we view Aussie craftspeople. To that, we say cheers.
