Bula! Gold-Winning Fiji Sevens Team Open Pop-Up Pub, ‘The Golden Fijian’, Next Weekend

January 31, 2017 Sports No Comments Email Email

Sydneysiders and visitors alike will get a slice of Fiji this February as ‘The Golden Fijian’ pop-up pub opens in Sydney next weekend, thanks to Fiji Airways.

Open 3rd – 5th February, the Fijian-themed bar – complete with beach ‘photo op’ backdrops, cocktails, Kava-mix, and a warm breeze* – is being opened by the world champion Fiji Sevens team, who were propelled to global fame after taking home their country’s first gold medal from Brazil in August last year.

The opening coincides with one of the most exciting global rugby tournaments taking place a stone’s throw away at the Moore Park Stadium. The Golden Fijian will provide the perfect post to take in the atmosphere and watch the games on a big screen.

As well as having Fiji Bitter and Vonu Pure Lager on offer, The Golden Fijian at The Olympic Hotel will offer a lunch and dinner menu of Fijian holiday favourites over the weekend.  Fiji Airways’ delicious coconut rum-infused Business Class Signature Cocktail will also be on sale.

The opening of the pop-up follows the sell-out success of ‘The Flying Fijian’ pop up that opened at the same time last year, and resulted in an electric atmosphere of sports fans cheering on their chosen Sevens team, queues to get in around the block, and the menu selling out before the weekend was over.

On the Saturday and Sunday afternoon, at 3.50pm (the time it takes to fly from Sydney to Nadi) there will be prize giveaways to those who turn up in the best fancy dress.

While a little slice of Fiji will be coming to Sydney, people who visit The Golden Fijian can also have the chance to escape to the real tropical paradise for themselves. All guests need to do is take a picture of themselves at the pub, use the hash #FlyLikeAFijian, and add a creative caption on Twitter or Instagram to be in for a chance to win two x return economy flights from Australia.**

For those wanting to say ‘bula!’ over a beverage, Gold medal winning former Fiji Sevens Coach and Fiji Airways Ambassador, Ben Ryan, is expected to also make   an appearance over the weekend.

‘The Golden Fijian’ Details:

Where: The Olympic Hotel – 308 Moore Park Rd, Paddington (directly across the road from Allianz Stadium)

When (bar opening times):
