Now Open: Tequila On York Is The Top Secret CBD Pop-Up Bar From Tequila Mockingbird

Bars, Drink, Sydney / 2 September 2020

Meet the new CBD pop-up bar from Tequila Mockingbird, open for one-month-only.

For the past four years, neighbourhood bar Tequila Mockingbird has been a favourite among Paddington locals (and Sydney foodies alike). Located in a lovingly converted heritage-listed terrace, this delicious spot has been serving flavourful Latin American eats and expertly crafted cocktails championing all things tequila. And now, Sydneysiders have another chance to enjoy the tastes of Tequila Mockingbird with the launch of a pop-up bar in the CBD.

Swinging open its doors today (September 2nd), Tequila On York is the epic new pop-up venue from the team at Tequila Mockingbird. Finding its home at 50 York Street, this CBD spot finds its home in an old printing shop hidden off York Street (complete with exposed sandstone walls, towering archways and timber beams).

And to make the experience extra special, the secret venue is tucked away with guests personally escorted into the concealed location for a unique private dining experience.

You’ll be in good hands at Tequila on York, with Tequila Mockingbird’s Executive Chef John Frid driving the culinary visions for this pop-up venue. With over 25 years’ experience as a chef (and running the Tequila Mockingbird kitchen since 2017), Frid is passionate about delivering the authentic flavours of Latin American cuisine to Sydney diners.
