Accor’s Swiss Grand Bondi hotel has opened Sydney’s latest pop-up bar, The Deck.

Swiss Grand Bondi General Manager Richard Holt said with views over the rolling waves and white sand of the Australia’s most famous beach, cooling ocean breezes, refreshing cocktails and a DJ playing cool sounds, it’s a top spot to watch the sun set as the surfers come in from the sea.

He said the pop-up bar was created to allow guests and locals to enjoy the best deck in Bondi before it disappears, with the hotel set to close and undergo redevelopment in May.

Fake turf, tiki torches, ambient lighting, multi-coloured beach balls and comfortable lounges create a relaxed vibe and encourage patrons to linger.

The Deck is open Thursdays – Sundays until the end of March, and will host several themed parties, with a big bash for planned for Australia Day on January 26 and a Brazilian party on January 27.
