It was a fun local establishment for this born-and-bred Bondi girl: a place in New York City to bring Aussie visitors for a trip back home, just for a second. But sadly, the Lower East Side’s Bondi Road will soon be no longer. It’s set to close its doors at the end of this month after an amazing 6-year run.
It was a perfect nod to Australia: coming to the local favourite, you’d be met outside by the familiar image on the awning of bathers and thongs. Inside was pretty great, too – a huge wall-to-wall image of Bondi Beach as you faced it from the South side. If you squinted wistfully (or had a couple of extra cocktails), you could almost imagine you were about to walk to Bronte.
Now the lease is up, but this Aussie-icon-in-NYC won’t go down without a party. All month, they’re offering a very non-Bondi priced Happy Hour from 4pm-8pm: $2 beer, $3 mixed drinks and $4 bar plates.
Then, on 30 September 2012, the sun will set on Bondi Road (NYC) in style: an official closing party to say goodbye the right way. Stay tuned to our official event page or the Bondi Road facebook page and we’ll make sure you know what’s going on.
And if you’re looking for more casual Aussie fare in New York, the team behind Bondi road – the Moo Life Group – also run 3 other successful Australian restaurants in New York City: The Sunburnt Cow, The Sunburnt Calf, and The Sunburnt Calf Brooklyn.
