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 Seedhttp://sydneyoperahouse.com/vividlives, Siouxsie and the Banshees, New Order and Iggy Pop to create a dancefloor reminiscent of the 80s Blitz Club in London.
