Vivid LIVE: Spellbound pop-up bar

Immerse yourself in moody opulence inspired by the masters of Dutch still life and new wave punk.

This year’s Vivid LIVE pop-up bar in the Opera House’s spectacular Concert Hall Northern Foyer has been conceived by the creative minds behind Newtown’s The Midnight Special and the Goldie’s Music Hall pop-up at Vivid LIVE 2018.

Indulge in brioche sliders with confit duck rillettes and a traditional Croque Monsieur (available “avec champignons” for vegetarians) at long banquet tables adorned with illuminated fruit centrepieces, bouquets in pewter urns, sheet music and skulls. Enjoy a botanical cocktail from Pyewacket’s Traditional Shrubs or a beer from local brewers Grifter Brewing Co. Moo Brew and Young Henrys under punky neon lights. Black felt pool tables and leather couches complete the look, creating the perfect late-night haunt for music lovers and Light Walk devotees alike.

Leading Sydney DJs including Lucy Cliché, Mitch Tolman and Cristian O’Sullivan (Low Life) and Will Harley (Straight Arrows, BB & the Blips) will spin a selection of hits and B-sides from the likes of The Damned, Nick Cave and the Bad Seed, Siouxsie and the Banshees, New Order and Iggy Pop to create a dancefloor reminiscent of the 80s Blitz Club in London.

Open nightly until late from 24 May to 3 June. Opening times vary significantly each night. Check for up to date information to avoid disappointment.



Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays to Saturdays, 9.45pm to 12am
Wednesdays and Sundays, 6pm to 12am

Friday 24 May to Monday 3 June 2019
