Newtown’s popular neighborhood bar, The Midnight Special is opening a pop-up bar in the Opera House’s Concert Hall Northern Foyer called Bar Subterranean. In town as part of Vivid Sydney, the bar is inspired by Bob Dylan’s song Subterranean Homesick Blues and it promises the full psychedelic experience. Drinks will be served from 6pm until late each night throughout the festival and entry is free.
