Not shy of an event or two, in one short year, The Dolphin has thrown a series of impressive parties, including the E.P . L.P takeover last month, a huge New Year's Eve Party and Melbourne Cup,  among a host of collaborations with some of Australia's best chefs, wine makers and producers. The bar has been set high, and for their very first birthday, boy have they raised it, with Aussie '80s Rock Band, The Models headlining the night.

The ARIA hall of fame rockers will be performing all of their original hits including 'Out of Sight, Out of Mind' and 'Barbados'. At the bar, a curated beverage selection of Delfino Negronis & Terzini's will be served, along with old favourites, No.8. The Screwdriver and GnT.

The food menu has been meticulously produced by Maurice Terzini and Monty Koludrovic, think traditional pizza romana by the slice (a Dolphin classic), proper sandwiches, pies and freshly roasted and carved Porchetta Panini. The Wine Room will also host its very own mortadella & natural wines party.

The Models will be supported by a host of local DJs including The Original Roman, Tyson Koh (Keep Sydney Open founder), DJ Salami and Adi Toohey (FBi Radio), among others.

$20 will get you entry, food and drinks for the night, with proceeds going to Crown Street Public School.

The Dolphin's 1st Birthday takes place Thursday, August 3 from 6pm - 12pm at 412 Crown Street Surry Hills. dolphinhotel.com.au
