Bars, Drink, Melbourne, Pubs, Sydney / 9 October 2020

Get ready for the ultimate Summer Staycation with these pop-up experiences at Australia’s top bars and pubs.

Dreaming of spring in Tokyo? What about a European summer on the Italian coastline? Or maybe a colourful Mexican Fiesta? While we might not be able to jump on a plane aboard this summer, this latest pop-up series is bringing the best international holiday destination to pubs and bars across Australia.

Launching this spring, the crew from Australian Venue Co is hosting a new pop-up experience called Summer Staycations. The group is bringing a taste of some of the world’s best holiday destinations to Australia, transforming their venues into incredible summer vacay spots for a limited time only.

Launching on November 2 (in all states but Victoria, with these experiences expected to launch in December), the Summer Staycations pop-ups will transform 20 of the groups’ pubs and bars into incredible international holiday destinations. Each venue will feature an international-inspired food, drinks and experiences as well as stunning themed interiors.

For Sydneysiders, get ready to experience some of your favourite venues as you’ve never seen them before this summer. Cargo Bar is set to be transformed into a Coachella-inspired destination, complete with a giant tee-pee and Palm Springs-inspired garden. Head to Bungalow 8 for a pop-up Bali Beach Club and head to The Rook for an escape to an Italian coastal summer. Plus, Manly Wine will come alive as a Japanese-inspired cherry blossom garden.

For Melbourne locals, head to Fargo and Co for a taste of Coachella or flock to College Lawn for the ultimate pop-up Mexican Fiesta. The Smith will transform into a Japanese cherry blossom garden and The Provincial will bring an Italian summer to the heart of Melbourne.
