Customs House's champagne igloos are returning in June!

Brown Snake views from a cosy igloo? Un-brr-lieveable!

Returning once again, Customs House’s beloved igloos are fast becoming a regular instalment in Brisbane’s winter foodie calendar. From Thursday, June 3, immerse yourself in a Euro chalet experience with its latest pop-up, Veuve Clicquot In The Snow, featuring fancy French champagne and nibbles!

Nestled along Brisbane’s stunning riverfront, this winter paradise will see you sipping and savouring a range of Veuve Clicquot champagne, either by the glass, bottle or magnum in cosy igloos styled with luxe faux furs and a dazzling view of Brisbane’s iconic Story Bridge.

Paired perfectly with the lavish drinks menu are indulgent bites like scampi caviar blini with crème frâiche, whole baked brie with crostini, smoked duck rillettes, and various gourmet cheeses that will be sure to have you s-mitten. The team’s notorious Moreton Bay bug roll on brioche with creamy lime mayo and roe is making a return (cue sigh of relief)!

On top of champagne, guests can also enjoy a collection of luxurious French wines, beers, and a range of cocktails including the Berries and Bubbles with fresh raspberry and lemon, Bombay Sapphire gin and St Germaine elderflower liqueur topped off with Veuve!

Veuve Clicquot In The Snow will run from 4 pm on Thursdays and Fridays, and from 1 pm on Saturdays and Sundays throughout winter.  For a premium experience, the igloos can be reserved for a minimum spend of $800, which can go towards food and drinks for your crew.  Head here to learn more and secure your spot!
