We love a pop-up AND we love Fashion Week. Put the two together – bippity boppity boo – and what have you got? The Catwalk Collins cocktail. Keystone Group as the official catering partners for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2012 are building a bespoke pop-up dining space and bar on site called Keystone Canteen with views out into the harbour for the duration of the week.
As an overview, the restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner throughout the entire week and feature BBQ favourites such as the lamb burger and grilled chicken salad. The menu will also feature the Aussie favourite ‘toastie’, including the Crab toasted sandwich, with coriander and zesty lime mayo and the Buffalo mozzarella, pesto, spinach, vine ripened tomato toastie.
And of course, the Keystone Group has also creating a bespoke cocktail for the event – the Catwalk Collins.

“Our partnership with the Keystone Group is an exciting step forward in our ongoing commitment to provide greater facilities for the guests attending Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. We are looking forward to sampling the delicious menu and are sure our guests will enjoy the premium dining experience at the Keystone Canteen” said Jarrad Clark, Global Production Director, IMG Fashion.
This latest partnership is part of Keystone’s continued commitment to providing their signature dining and entertaining experiences outside of their stand-alone venues. Keystone showcased this commitment earlier this year by launching a highly successful partnership with Sydney Festival by becoming the naming rights sponsor for Keystone Festival Bar at Hyde Park Barracks.
