In the words of ACDC — it’s a long way to the top, if you wanna rock and roll.
For the latest and greatest late night drink spot, climb on up to Boogie Mountain— a newly opened club, enlivening up Potts Point.
Just a short walk from the iconic Coca Cola sign, enter through an inconspicuous entrance on Darlinghurst road, and follow your way up to level two. The stairway walls are splattered with art and signs of creativity, very characteristic of Sydney’s infamous Kings Cross.
At the venue’s opening night event, my guest and I powered through a plethora of the bar’s classic cocktails, and a variety of all Australian wines. The “Alabama Slammer” and timeless “Pina Colada” are our standout cocktail picks.
The nightclub’s decor is equally impressive. Rose-patterned pillars surround red velvet couches. Dimly lit booths create mysterious nooks throughout the space, complimenting the venue’s rock-chic ambience.
Boogie Mountain appeals to taste, sight, and sound too. The DJ spins everything from Talking Heads through to Iggy Pop. It’s guaranteed to be a Sydney go-to for late night bites, and a boogie until the early morn.
Creative and concept designer Byron Georgouras said, “We wanted to create a space that celebrated what Sydney was always about. A youthful loss of innocence, a sense of adventure, simple pleasures and free spirit… Sydney is an awesome city, with some great places to go out and we just wanted to be contributing to that”.
The Boogie Mountain menu focuses on playful and shareable meals, offering everything from chorizo and chicken poutine, to arancini style “Disco Ball” bites. Their way-after-dark Midnight Snack menu will see them serve up cheeseburgers, fries, and apple pie delights.
Byron Georgouras teams up with hospitality industry leader John Duncan to bring this great new option to Sydney’s late night scene (formerly Kit & Kaboodle).
The place is inspired by the hedonistic cults of the Arizona desert — so if you’re gonna climb some stairs, you may as well make sure there’s a rock n’ roll oasis waiting for you at the top. Make sure to check it out.
