Inspired by this season's headline exhibition, Pipilotti Rist: Sip my Ocean the popular bar offers Sydney-siders and visitors the chance to view the harbour in a different light.

Designed by director and artist James Dive, the facade is created using hundreds of individually dyed and cut industrial PVC strip curtains. Once inside visitors can celebrate summer with a vibrant menu created by Culinary Edge, a colourful cocktail list and Sunday sets by Future Classic.
