As Summer begins, Restaurateur Brett Robinson and the team from Topikós present Bar Topikós, an evolution of Topikós that will see the Curlewis side of the venue operate in a relaxed and casual manner from midday seven days a week. The redefined space is the final piece to the Greek puzzle, neighbouring the restaurant, the new offering highlights the versatility of the much loved venue.
Brett said: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the support and positive feedback of Topikós since we launched earlier this year, coming into our first summer in Bondi we are excited to bring to life Bar Topikós. Offering a relaxed and fun environment completes our vision from the start to offer a Greek restaurant and large scale bar right in the heart of Bondi.”
“Bar Topikós encourages guests to create their own journey, come in off the beach for drinks and snacks, start your night with cocktails or settle in for the evening. Topikos is all about the long lunch and group dinners, with the new menu items at Bar Topikos, we look forward to singles and groups pulling up a seat at the bar after a long day on the beach with sand still on their feet.” continues Brett.
Bar Topikós will offer a rotating menu of specials including a $10 Bellini, $10 wine and the $25 Souvlaki plate (warm pita, three skewers from the wood fire oven, Greek salad, tzatziki, hand cut fries).The flexibility of Bar Topikós caters to all, a quick bite to eat and a cocktail for under $35 or a long evening mixing and matching the meze selection and cocktails. Already proving to be favourites the signature Aegean Spritz (Tanqueray Gin, Bianco Vermouth, Pomelo, Yuzu, Fresh Lemon, Prosecco) or a Lychee & Grapefruit Bellini (Don Julio Blanco, Lychee, Grapefruit, Prosecco) are the perfect accompaniment to the new menu.
To complete the picture Bar Topikos will also be launching the collaboration with the Byron Bay Beer garden on the Campbell Parade outdoor terrace. Pull up to the Topikos x Byron Bay Beer Garden – a casual, walk in off the beach, sand on your feet, shorts drying in the summer breeze, salt on skin, hair still wet from the surf experience.
“We’ve always considered Byron Bay to be North North Bondi. Bondi and Byron share so many similarities in beach culture and the laid-back Summer lifestyle, this collaboration with Byron Bay Lager aims to quench the thirst of every beach-goer this summer – accompanied by some Topikos snacks.”
Bar Topikos is open Monday to Sunday 12pm- 12am and is available for bookings and on a walk-in basis. Topikos will trade throughout the festive season as normal with the exception of Christmas Day.
