Panama “Snow” House: Bondi’s new Winter Wonderland

Home » Panama “Snow” House: Bondi’s new Winter Wonderland

The launch of Panama Snow House saw the gathering of Sydney socialites as the beach icon transformed into an après-ski winter wonderland.   Overhanging winter gear and skis, snow crystals, a roaring log fire wall projection and Christmas tree set the tone of the pop-up which runs until 28th July in conjunction with themed events to mark the season.

To keep guests toasty warm Canadian Club hot toddies and mulled wine were served, and – to warm tummies – street eats from Mexico were on offer, with a bit of chilli heat.

They were among the appreciative après crowd looking for a warm reception, and comforting food and drinks, while enjoying views across Bondi Beach, including an LED rainbow-hued Ferris Wheel on the beach, while enjoying a relatively mild winter’s night.



In January, after five years on Bondi Road, Panama House relocated to its new beachfront premises on Campbell Parade. While the laid-back vibe remains the same, it isn’t just the address which has changed, it is now a venue for all seasons.  The Panama “Snow” House event launched a fun winter season of events.
