Bungalow 8 and Cargo Bar to close this weekend
Two of Sydney’s iconic venues, Cargo Bar and Bungalow 8, are set for major makeovers and will close this weekend (Saturday 12 August) before reopening in spring.
Both Cargo Bar and Bungalow 8 are owned by Dixon Hospitality, and have been entertaining Sydneysiders for almost two decades.
While full details about the reincarnation of both venues are yet to be revealed, Cargo Bar will remain a party spot but with a new face: “the best DJs and drinks but with an incredible, entirely different look and feel that’s a nod to the sleek, sexy vibe of the 80s,” reads a statement released today.
“Don’t forget about Bungalow 8, which is set to transform into a ‘palm beach villa meets city chic’ bar and eatery. This is the place for relaxed drinks and dining overlooking Sydney Harbour just in time for that gorgeous spring and summer weather.”
The news comes just over a month after global investment firm KKR announced they would be buying a majority stake worth $190 million in the fast-growing Dixon Hospitality group.
The two venues will be hosting a final send-off party this Saturday night (12 August) – further details about the closing parties are available on the Cargo Bar and Bungalow 8 Facebook pages.
