Atura Blacktown Sydney pool

Making the most of the Palm Springs-inspired, pool deck, Atura Blacktown is preparing to shake up the post-party recovery scene with cocktail-infused poolside dance sessions every Sunday all summer long.

From 1pm – 9pm every Sunday throughout summer, Atura’s firing up the barbie and shaking up the cocktails, throwing the gates open to give locals unprecedented access to their guest-only resort-styled pool courtyard with music by renowned Australian DJ Nick Young.

Handpicked by QT and Atura Hotels Music Director Andrew Lewis, Nick Young has had more than 10 years’ experience spinning just about every genre in the best bars and clubs across Australasia.

“A Knicks set sounds like a great old friend you’ve never met, splicing underplayed classics with breaking music,” Young said.

“I’m really looking forward to serving up this fresh sound to a whole new Western Sydney audience this summer.”

Somewhat of a passion project for Atura’s General Manager Joel Gordon, the concept is one he’s been cooking up all winter long.

“Atura’s pool deck is magic in summer and it gives us the ability to create an experience like nothing else for Western Sydney,” he said.

“We think it’ll become a real mecca for people looking for a cool way to spend the day with their friends chilling by the pool with great music.”

If you’re yearning for a cruisy Sunday cooling your heels in the pool, sipping on the latest concoctions by Atura’s renowned cocktail mixologists and listening to some great tunes, grab the swimmers and your sunnies and head to Western Sydney’s coolest recovery party.
