Urban farm and eatery Acre has announced it will close its Camperdown site in Sydney’s Inner West.
The venue, which opened in 2016, was the first for the Acre brand, which has gone on to expand in Melbourne and Sydney.
“It is unfortunate to have to depart from what has been a much-loved and successful venue at Camperdown for the Acre Group, but it also gives us scope to reinvest in our existing and growing portfolio … ” says Co-Director John Tully.
But it’s not all bad news – a new Acre is set to open in Chippendale under the moniker Acrette.
Tully says the past year has given the group the chance to look at different ways of doing business, with the acquisition of the Chippendale site providing an opportunity to “set a new direction”.
“Acrette is a neat addition to the group we have been looking at for some time,” says Managing Director Luke Heard.
“It has been created to complement the ongoing success of the self-operated, longer-lease and larger footprints of other Acre Group properties … “
Acrette is located at 822 George Street Chippendale and will revolve around the same farm-to-plate ethos as the other Acre sites.
Guests can expect Gypsy coffee, a bakery range, salads, desserts, drinks and more.
The Acre brand will continue its expansion throughout the year, with another Sydney site set to open in November and a Western Sydney location slated for 2022.
Acre Camperdown will close its doors this May.
