Since it began last year, temporary precinct Wulugul Pop Up along The Streets of Barangaroo has been a regular go-to spot for hungry, thirsty Sydneysiders craving the likes of Belle’s Hot Chicken, Gin & It, and Chaco Bar in an open-air harbourside experience. The end of July sadly brings the close of this pop-up, as it moves to make way for a permanent line-up of world class restaurants – which so far includes the excellent Anason – and seeing as the series of eateries and bars has met massive success over the past few months, the organisers are planning a little farewell festival to see the residency off with style.
A whopping 1 tonne of Belle’s Hot Chicken has been devoured every week since the pop-up began back in November of last year, which should give you a rough idea of how wild the reception has been. In addition, Gin & It have poured a total of 23,000 shots of Bombay Dry Gin, expecting more during the final weeks which will see a celebration full of live music, food, and drink take over the precinct from Monday 18th to Friday 22nd July.
Some of the artists who have been tapped to perform include indie soloist Aaliyah Marie, vocalist Matt Boylan, electronica act Fernando Aragones and funk-soul trio Stef, Cam & Ron. They will all be soundtracking several days of festive eating and drinking before the slate is wiped clean and the space is prepared for high-profile openings from the likes of Brent Savage, Hamish Ingham, and Nick Hildebrandt. Belle’s will also be opening up a permanent spot along the walk come September.
More names across the Wulugul Walk will include Tapavino (Spanish), Muum Maam (Thai), Lotus (Chinese), and Ume Burger (Japanese), adding to the already opened food outlets which include The Canteen, Shortstop Donut, and The Rabbit Hole Organic Tea Bar.
