The Grounds of Alexandria to Pop Up at Sculpture by the Sea

Ultimate Sydney.

Walking the length of Sculpture by the Sea can make for thirsty (and hungry) work. There aren’t too many points along the way where you can nip off the trail for an express snack. But the good news is that The Grounds of Alexandria is coming to the rescue, pop-up style.

At Marks Park, home to some of the best views between Bondi and Tamarama, they’ll be setting up a temporary cafe by the name of The Grounds by the Sea. All the holistic goodness and gorgeous design of the Alexandria site will be reincarnated at the seaside for just 19 days.

Grounds stylist Therese Moussa will be setting the tone, while Grounds co-director Ramzey Choker has put together a specially designed menu. As you would expect, it is based on a seed-to-plate philosophy. All produce is seasonal and sourced from the finest growers and producers in the local vicinity.

Meanwhile, co-director and world latte champion Jack Hanna will be bringing his skilful team of baristas to the site. A variety of caffeinated solutions will be on offer, with both Synesso machines and a filter brew bar working from dawn to dusk.

The Grounds by the Sea will be open between 7am and 7pm every day throughout Sculpture by the Sea, which runs from October 23 to November 9.
