Paranormal Activity

Paranormal Turns One

Many thank yous to all who will join us on Sunday to celebrate our headquarters turning one. We express sincere gratitude to those who’ve dropped into the ship, purchased, perused, sat in. It is not lost on us. Onto Year Two. 


Aotearoa Awaits at Paramount House

Aotearoa Awaits at Paramount House

There’s another Paranormal-skewed event on the horizon for you. On Thursday May 26, Broadsheet is offering “a portal to New Zealand”, otherwise known as an immersive party of New Zealand’s culinary, cultural and artistic offering, at Surry Hills’ Paramount House Hotel. There’ll be a Māori welcome, Max is on the wine, Amber Doig is on the snacks, along with Bar Celeste, there will be live art by Estere and music from Natalie Ex. Thirty double passes for mere mortals to win are up for the winning. Godspeed.

(Pet) Nats of Mersel

(Pet) Nats of Mersel

A drop as fun as the weather? The weather may be the stuff of comedy but Mersel is not. The north Lebanon producer is making two (outer)stellar fizzy drinks, with indigenous vines and a lotta pizzazz. Paranormal’s secured both the Leb (Pet) Nat Gold and Let (Pet) Nat Ruby, both 2020. Gold’s a fruity fruit salad on the nose and Aero-style with its bubbles. Its Ruby counterpart? Bubblegummy, berry-y, Saturday’s only salve.

Comme Ci Comme Ca

Comme Ci Comme Ca

Come one, come all, comme ci, comme ça. Tomorrow, the day barrelling towards us, May 20, we’re hosting dear acquaintances Jean Bouteille and Chateau Comme Ci Comme Ça’s Aaron Fenwick for a tasty tasting. As part of their Marathon Fruité, Jean and Aaron are traversing the terra firma to showcase the latest, greatest and tastiest of autumn 2021. Join us at Paranormal for the Canberra stop on their tour, from 1pm till 4pm tomorrow to insert yourself into the activity.
Brutal Wine

Brutal Wine

Brutal Brutal!! A special wine waiting to dock at your place. Christian Tschida’s Brutal!! Pinot Noir offers some of the best out of Burgenland, Austria. Fact: the contents of this bottle is a wine crushed by feet. Its cult status is gained from its cola-y, pine-y notes and it’s not an enemy of rabbit risotto or an evening plonked by an open flame. If we were you, we’d lay up horizontal with Don’t Look Up on the television set.

Planet Pasta

Planet Pasta

Had the pleasure of encountering Planet Pasta? ‘Tis our weekly pasta eve’ in the bar. Every Friday night Aidan plates up pasta’s best — different shapes, different sauces — the world’s his oyster, and yours to eat. Bookings are neither necessary nor available, apologies, but there’s always plenty to go ‘round. Remember, Planet Pasta is every Friday but pre-warning, we’ll be skipping it Friday May 13, so don’t come seeking sauce then.
