The sound of Jazz will emanate from Heard Park as Parnell pays homage to its rich hospitality culture.

The tastes of Parnell will turn to the spectacle of the Waiters’ Race in Heard Park, where Parnell’s ‘best in service’ compete for the title.

In keeping with the wonderful dining/restaurant history of Parnell from the 70s, 80s and 90s, contestants have been invited from the hey days of old, Antoines, VBG, Metropole amongst them, to mix it up with staff from the current flourishing café culture and popular neighbourhood lounge bars. NSP Restaurant was the first to lead the charge to sign up this year. With Japanese and other Asian flavours fusing into the rise of Parnell hospitality offerings. The 2010 race saw Kimonos in the starting line up!
