Two guys, the Bondi markets – that’s where we begin.
We’ve been incredibly fortunate to be able to bring Bailey Nelson to locales around Australia and New Zealand, but it’s seriously special to be opening our second boutique in Bondi. To celebrate the upcoming opening of our Bondi Junction store, we put together this guide to the neighbourhood.
Stop 1: Aquabumps
A visit to Bondi isn’t complete without going to Aquabumps – a photo gallery by the sea. Driven by founder Eugene (Uge) Tan’s love for the beach, Aquabumps lets you see the beach in the light of a hundred different sunrises. We’ve been friends with Uge for a long time. Early last year we collaborated on a limited collection of sunnies. The last pairs are still available right here.
Stop 2: The Neighbourhood
Bondi has a reputation as a clean living mecca – the sun and sand will do that, but the clean life isn’t for everyone. If you’re feeling a bit gluttonous (and we all too often are) then the Neighbourhood is the go. You’ll find classic, American-style burgers and fresh oysters. We’d wash it down with a well named cocktail – the 'Dark and Stormy, Bra!' –captures the vibe perfectly.
Stop 3: Sculpture by the Sea
You can see why the Sculpture by the Sea art festival celebrates the walk from Bondi to Coogee every year – it’s truly sublime. Winding across the clifftops, you’ll get views here like nothing you’ve seen before. It's on annually in October to November.
Stop 4: Lox, Stock and Barrel
Lox, Stock and Barrel has one of the better twists on the phrase since Guy Ritchie’s classic crime thriller. Unlike the movie, you’ll be perfectly safe here – sipping some of the best drinks in Bondi and enjoying Lox’s signature baked goods. Worth a stop.
