The glitz and glamour is coming to Sydney, as Dolly Parton’s smash-hit musical 9 TO 5 makes its Australian premiere in Sydney. To celebrate, we’ve compiled the ultimate 9 TO 5 (and beyond) day out in Sydney. From where to shop and get your glam on, long lunch locales for the ladies, and the “happy hour” hot-spots to kick up the heels at the end of the working day. So get your colleagues and friends together and enjoy this Dolly-inspired itinerary in Sydney.

On-the-go
Looking for the perfect brew or brekkie where the locals go before work? The Grounds of the City has old-school charm and superb coffee, while in Woolloomooloo, Flour and Stone bake delectable pastries daily. Further afield, sweeten up with a seasonal fruit tart from Loulou’s Boulangerie in Milson’s Point or grab a bunch of blooms with your morning brew at Cuppa Flower in Waterloo. By the seaside, Bowl’d Out Bronte has colourful acai bowls bursting with goodness, or try Madame and Yves for sweet pink décor and delicate croissants.

Blonde ambition
Be inspired by Dolly’s signature sky-high, platinum hairdo. Lighten things up at Valonz in Paddington where celebrity stylist Renya Xydis and team are experts at beachy balayage, creamy platinum and every shade in between. There’s also The Men’s Grooming Room with principal barber, Aiden Xydis.

Blow out

Star-quality hair needs a pro cut and dry. For a bespoke layered chop to boost volume, multi-award-winning hairstylist Dario Cotroneo cuts hair dry, for precision and finish. For an enviable blow out, book a pamper package at Blown Lux, Barangaroo, or gather the sisterhood for a group style up and tipple at Blow Bar and Co., with outposts in Bronte, Balmain, Coogee or the CBD.

Shopping
Stand out from the crowd with a day shopping for gorgeous local designs, curated international collections and vintage finds. Sydney’s hottest spots include Glenmore Road Paddington, The Strand Arcade for Rebecca Vallance’s stylish workwear, and Bondi fashion institution Tuchuzy for international brands alongside cutting-edge designers. Buy dreamy dresses at Zimmermann or explore Newtown and Surry Hills for vintage treasures. Want a beach-ready cowgirl hat? Visit Helen Kaminski for a luxury raffia version.

Power lunch
Book in a long lunch fit for a girl boss. Bert’s is a Sydney favourite – light-filled and overlooking sparkling Pittwater. Kick off at the Champagne bar before delving into delicate seafood dishes of caviar, fresh crab and succulent Sydney rock oysters. For the ultimate garden party, book Chiswick in Woollahra – nestled in lush greenery with a share-style menu. In Double Bay, Margaret has elegant interiors and sublime desserts – try their Memories of a Mirabelle Tart.

5pm to 9pm

Happy Hour
Get your glitz on and join after-work gatherings across Sydney. Maybe a mini martini at Maybe Sammy – one of the World’s 50 Best Bars – or visit their elegant new pad with city views, Dean and Nancy on 22. At Henry Deane at Hotel Palisade, plush pink interiors, awe-inspiring views of Sydney Harbour Bridge and delicious cocktails await. The CBD’s newest hang out du jour with an outdoor terrace bar is Cabana Bar or visit Employees Only the Sydney outpost of the NYC cult cocktail bar and get your tarot cards read by the resident psychic.

Stylish Stay
