Located in the heart of Bondi Beach, founders and husband & wife team Joaquin Saez and Emily Abay have brought a slice of Greek paradise to Sydney. Their exquisitely styled Mediterranean Meze bar was named after the Aegean island of Ikaria and inspired by its beachside beauty and philosophies.
With its paradisal tranquillity, the interiors look out to stunning ocean views of Bondi Beach and feature a timeless design by African Trading Port’s Lisa Wright. Lisa has meticulously encapsulated the beachside Greek island feel by providing a warm and inviting atmosphere for its patrons.
Featured here is the Officina Pendant Light by Il Fanale. A statement piece that works effortlessly amongst the Mediterranean inspired interior. Officina is raw and rough yet is sophisticated with its refined appearance. Its placement allows it to sit harmoniously above the bar to contrast the light and breezy surrounding motifs.
