This riverside garden pop-up is serving high tea and spritzes
Riverbar and Kitchen’s Chandon Garden pop-up is the perfect place to sip away your day (or night)!
They're here for a good time, not a long time!
As the weather warms up, there’s just something about a pop-up bar! Whether you’re all about cheers-ing in style or just keen to try somewhere new, we’ve picked five pop-ups to experience ASAP.
Taste a little trip to Italy, with the Malfy Gin pop-up at Brisbane Quarter providing the perfect spot for knockoffs or pre-drinks before heading to one of the neighbouring restaurants! Running from 5:30pm to 7pm every Thursday in November, the Summer Nights menu features fresh Mediterranean flavours like blood orange and thyme to complement the Malfy Gin, while the pop-up also offers live DJ tunes and plenty of photo ops! Head up to Persone, Tenya, Phat Boy, Phoenix or the W Brisbane’s WET Deck, Living Room Bar or Three Blue Ducks once you’ve whet your appetite.
You can’t beat the classic Aperol spritz! Get down to Eagle Street between November 10 and December 18 to pull up a spot at this riverside pop-up with cocktails by COPPA and bar snacks from Fatcow Steak & Lobster, Rico Bar & Dining and City Winery available to order directly from the bar. The Aperol Spritz pop-up will operate Wednesdays-Saturdays, 12pm-7pm opposite City Winery.
Two words: lobster rolls. That’s right, this seafood and spritz pop-up by the team from One Fish Two Fish is only hanging around until Christmas time, serving up lunch-worthy faves like seafood sangas, burgers and salads alongside an after-4pm menu with a “seacuterie” platter for sharing as well as the aforementioned crustacean delight! Read more about what to expect here.
The Regatta’s courtyard bar has been transformed into a pastel floral paradise, complete with a warm-weather menu of share plates (we’re talking fried prawn tacos, mushroom sliders and salumi plates), pizzas and cocktails! Sundays will see the spritz cart roll out from midday to 5 pm, with live music to suit. The perfect spot to enjoy some early summer sunshine? We think so!
Scone in one hand, spritz in the other! This pop-up is celebrating all things Chandon Garden, the new pre-mixed spritz that’s a little bit floral and a whole lot refreshing. Head down by the boardwalk to try it for yourself from the pop-up menu, or plan a Spruced with Spritz high tea offering loads of snacks and a spritz for just $50pp! Read more here.
Pull out that pink ‘fit you’ve been saving; here’s the occasion! Customs House’s pop-up bar is a seasonal fave (and for food reason), with premium champagne and cocktails on the menu as well as THOSE to-die-for Moreton Bay big croissants. Pull up a spot inside a gorgeous floral dome, order another glass of Moët & Chandon rosé champagne, and snap that double-tap-worthy Insta. Read more about the Rosé Garden here.
Once you pop, you can’t stop…
