The venue is named after the Hotel Street in Honolulu, Hawaii where Norman ‘Sailor Jerry’ Collins set up a tattoo shop where sailors came to get “screwed, stewed and tattooed”. The Sydney pop up runs from September 6th to October 13th and pays a tribute to the global culture of  Sailor Jerry.

Bar Manager, Daniel Gregory (ex Black Pearl in Melbourne) alone with Hugh Payten Smith, Sailor Jerry Ambassador have put together a blackboard cocktail list including an easy drinking Tijuana Jerry made with rum, tequila, lime and agave and the Stewed and Screwed Sour with rum, lemon, sugar and port.

Food truck, Eat Art Truck is dishing up tasty American BBQ street food nightly. The Truckstop menu includes irresistible hot smoked Pulled Pork Buns ($12) in Sailor Jerry BBQ sauce and tasty bites of Pork and Prawn Wontons with chilli and shallots ($8).

Hotel Street features live performances by Bloods, Drunk Mums, Money For Rope, Chicks Who Love Guns, Goons of Doom and many others, the world’s largest collection of original Sailor Jerry flash art and a weekly rock’n’roll film and documentary screenings including Hori Smoku. Limited-edition Sailor Jerry clothing is available along with sunglasses made from Sailor Jerry skateboards by Holloway Eyewear in Queensland.

Adding to the excitement of the pop up, the venue is using RFID technology that links to Facebook. Guests can check-in and post photos automatically via flash tattoo-inspired smart pendants which double as an entry pass. Interactive points around Hotel Street include the live music stage and the art exhibition.

Norman ‘Sailor Jerry’ Collins would be right at home.

Hotel Street is anchored at 12 Kellett Street in Kings Cross until October 13th, 2013.
