The ultimate VIVID pop-up bar at the doorstep of Sydney's famous light walk

Pier One Sydney Harbour’s Bridge Marquee will be transformed this August into a stunning illuminated bar to celebrate and embrace VIVID Sydney, taking place in our beautiful city and surrounding area. Guests to Pier One will enjoy fabulous cocktails and share plates in the stunning venue, with views over the Harbour Bridge and Sydney Harbour. 

‘Happiness art experts’ Maurice Goldberg and Matthew Aberline of Goldberg Aberline Studio have created the amazing illuminated inflatable art installation, exploring the concept theme of “The Love of Travel” with a local eye.

Gather in style and enjoy premium drinking and dining from the comfort of the marquee, a place to start or finish your VIVID experience. Walk out the door and you are just minutes away from the VIVID light trail, making the Luminous Bar at Pier One the best place to enjoy VIVID in style.
