Following on from the success of last year’s temporary pop-up bar in Melbourne, Pure Blonde has brought the concept to a heritage-listed building in Sydney.

Called The Pond, the temporary bar and restaurant has been created within the remains of an abandoned Italian eatery and is furnished with recycled and sustainable materials.

“The Pond is a breath of fresh air for Sydney,” said The Pond creative director Barrie Barton. “Pure Blonde has taken a space that was tired and worn down and given it a new lease on life, bringing a new taste and flavour to the back streets of Darlinghurst.”

The Pond’s concept is about highlighting what can be done with an environmentally-friendly frame of mind, and features rescued plants, ferns and herbs in the garden and reclaimed office carpet on the floors.

The Pond will be open from Wednesday-Sunday, 12pm to 12am until December and will serve a range of beers and wine, along with an organic and local produce focused menu.
