Potts Point's Paper Bird Is Closing Forever This August

Maybe you were a big fan of Moon Park. Maybe you've been in for brunch. Maybe its shrimp-brined fried chicken gave you life on more than a few occasions. Whatever the reason you frequent Paper Bird, your days for popping in for tasty Korean-Japanese-Chinese snacks and wine are (very sadly) numbered. After opening in the Potts Point spot a bit over two years ago, its owners today announced that it will close its door forever on the first weekend of August.

In an Instagram post this morning, the team confirmed that Paper Bird's last day of service will be Saturday, August 3. It has not given a specific reason for the closure.

Fans of the Paper Bird team will be feeling a sense of déjà vu — its previous restaurant Moon Park closed its doors in 2016. Luckily, it looks set to bring back some favourites from both the Paper Bird and Moon Park menus during its final weeks of service. Best make a booking now and cross your fingers for some of that fried chicken.

The restaurant was initially opened in July 2017 by Ned Brooks, Ben Sears and Eun Hee An as an all-day diner. Since then, it had dropped down to dinner service only with lunch on weekends.

The closure of Paper Bird is, sadly, not an isolated incident. Newtown fine diner Oscillate Wildly recently announced it will close its doors soon, as will Billy Kwong. On top of that, Sydney favourites Longrain and Acme are both in their last week of service.

Paper Bird will continue trading at 46A MacLeay Street, Potts Point until Saturday, August 3. Make a booking here.
