These Four Sydney Venues Will Be Transforming Into Overseas Holiday Destinations This Summer

Italy? Bali? Tokyo or Palm Springs? Sydney, where do you want to go first?


No passports and no airfares required, just the right mindset.

Thanks to Australian Venue Co transforming twenty of their outstanding bars and restaurants around Australia into international holiday destinations, Aussies will now be able to go on a ”summer staycation”.

That’s right. A holiday without ever having to leave Sydney. Considering the times, this sounds pretty good to us. And there will be four in Sydney.

Sydneysiders will have the choice of jetting to the stunning Amalfi Coast at The Rook, a trip to see Japan’s cherry blossoms at Manly Wine, the chance to soak up some sun and sea at Bungalow 8’s Bali Beach Club, and the opportunity to bust a move on the Cargo-Chella garden dancefloor.

Each of the venues will be decked out in all the necessary trim to transport you to these other places, including giant teepees, hanging vines, pretty-pink flowers, and food and drink menus inspired by their exotic destinations.


Think perfectly mixed Negroni’s, chilled Bintangs and frozen cocktails, Japanese fusion bites, and weekend brunching to the sounds of the biggest festival bangers. So far there are few details available to us (more have been promised), but considering the transformation of The Rook’s rooftop to a cherry-blossom wonderland earlier in the year, and which ends this October 11, then we reckon that we’re in for a treat no matter where we head to first on our round-the-world adventure.

Bungalow 8’s Bali Beach Club, though, has already let slip that they’ll be putting together ‘day bed packages’, which include two hours of Prosecco and Bintang sipping; a ‘bottomless brunch’ fare where frozen cocktails are the stars alongside the Balinese-inspired menu; and, our personal favourite, the ‘suckling pig sessions’ for the best way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

More information is expected on October 19 with the pop-ups expected to go live on Friday, November 2.
