The Emma Sleep Hotel launches a seven course shared degustation menu infused with foods that help you fall asleep
- Each dish has been made with ingredients scientifically proven to improve sleep quality
- Book to enjoy the $120 menu designed for two people from 22nd to 25th June
- Emma Happy Hour from 4-5pm, with access to $12 Sbagliato cocktails
What you eat is how you sleep, and Sydneysiders are about to get the best bite’s sleep ever with a world-first, seven course “Sleepgustation” menu developed by Emma Sleep’s global sleep scientists and the culinary legends at The Strand in Darlinghurst.
From the 22nd to the 25th of June, located at the Emma Sleep Hotel’s rooftop bar, diners will be treated to dishes formulated with ingredients that are scientifically proven to improve your sleep while you eat. The $120 shared degustation menu (two person) has been created with sleep-inducing foods including potatoes served as fluffy pillow clouds, healthy-fat fish plated on shells with dry ice, and cherries resting between layers upon layers of sheets (pastry).
“We know that more than half of Australians struggle to fall asleep, and what you eat before you lay down for the night plays a vital role in how well you sleep. The Sleepgustation Menu is a delicious way of helping Aussies to understand the role that food plays in getting a good night of shut eye,” said Emma Global’s resident Snooze-ologist Emma Merritt.
But for those Sydneysiders who want to enjoy a delicious beverage (in moderation, of course!), the Emma Sleep Hotel rooftop bar will feature a custom cocktail list with sleep-centric ingredients such as chamomile, lavender, and hops. The seven signature cocktails will include:
- Melon-tonin Marg: A strawberry and watermelon margarita. Strawberries contain a key ingredient that supports the creation of melatonin, a hormone that’s crucial in helping you sleep.
- White Sbagliato: A classic cocktail reimagined with chamomile and honey to aid in restfulness and digestion while falling asleep.
- Nanna Nap (Non-alc): Warm chai latte with house made oat milk and pineapple caramel.

“To set you up for your most productive day, your breakfast and lunch should contain more protein to stimulate the production of dopamine and norepinephrine, which are some of the hormones responsible for maintaining wakefulness. However, when it comes to evening meals, you should eat more complex carbohydrates such as potatoes, legumes, and whole grains. These are all some of the things our guests will experience as they enjoy a seven course journey curated to help them drift off to sleep,” said Merritt.
The Emma Sleep Hotel rooftop bar will be running a series of activities including an Emma Happy Hour from 4pm to 5pm on Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd of June, where the general public can enjoy $10 Sbagliato cocktails. Lucky people will be chosen at random to receive one of Emma’s award-winning pillows to take home.
The Emma Sleep Hotel rooftop bar will say goodnight with a Sunday Snooze Session with a Sbagliato and Snack special during the afternoon on the 25th of June.
“We’ve seen overwhelming interest in the Emma Sleep Hotel demonstrating that Aussies are in desperate need of some quality shut eye. While not everybody can join us for a sleepover, the Sleepgustation is a delicious way that we can provide more extra tips and tricks to ensure a great night of sleep,” said Merritt.
Running from Thursday 22nd to Monday the 26th of June, The Emma Sleep Hotel will include 10 custom Sleep zzZ-uites uniquely designed by Emma’s global Dream Team of sleep experts and psychologists to cater to different types of sleepers. The Emma Sleep Hotel will educate guests ways to best set themselves up for the ultimate snooze. Guests will be greeted at entry by a Snoreman, before heading to the hotel’s Rest-ception Desk to “tuck in”.
