Time to welcome in spring with a spritz or three, because the ever-creative crew at Customs House are bringing back their spring-inspired pop-up bar, this time with a whole new look. 

While the igloos have been in residence for winter, come Thursday 27 October it will be all about zesty cocktails and citrus bites, with endless popping of bottles of Chandon Garden Spritz (a boujee blend of Chandon's sparkling wine and orange bitters) amongst fresh white garden furniture and plenty of greenery. There’ll be more than a few other other sips on offer too of course, including espresso martinis, so those Friday afternoon drinks might go for a bit longer than planned for, you know?

While you sip, chow down on fromage croquettes with aioli or get a little fancy with French Oscietra Caviar with blini and crème fraiche. Plus, those delicious Moreton Bay bug croissants from last year's pop-up are back, this time with citrus poached bug, so if you haven’t crunched into one yet, we suggest stopping by.

If you're just there for the 'gram, the selfie opportunities will be endless, with open-air garden domes bedecked in greenery and pops of orange set to land by the river. You and a group of freinds will be able to fit inside, and best of all no bookings are required.

It all kicks off from Thursday 27 October, open Thursday to Sunday for sunset sips—you can get all the details here
