2011 will surely be remembered as the Year of the Pop Up. Every week a new cafe, gallery or collective seems to be springing up before disappearing in puff of smoke akin to a giant version of Whack the Mole.
The latest to follow this trending trend is roofPOP!, a new champagne bar from the Rooftop Bar and Cinema folk. Sitting pretty on Level 6 of Curtin House, Melbourne’s newest bar occupies the space where The Thousands used to lurk.
It’s obvious architects Fitt De Felice have had fun with the design – a gold lined entrance mimics a champagne cork’s foil wrapping, while inside vibrant green walls are lined with thousands of tiny plastic cups resembling bubbles, giving the effect of shrinking like Alice and entering a champagne bottle (an effect doubly effective after a few glasses of bubbly).
Planned to run over the summer, roofPOP! pops its cork this Friday night. Catch it while you can.
