Summer in Brisbane is here (because it hasn't been hot enough), meaning it’s now time to kick back and relax with an afternoon cocktail, right? Right.
We’re all about la dolce vita, so we had to take a seat (and a few deep breaths) when we found out that not one, but two, Aperol Spritz bars are popping up in the city this summer. Now we can finally relax the way the Europeans do—oh, and lucky for you, we know exactly where to find them.
For the entire month of December, Customs House will play host to Sunset Spritz by Aperol Spritz, so you can enjoy a cocktail (or two) while taking in one of the best views in town. There’ll be complimentary canapés at Aperitivo Hour (that’s on Wednesdays from 5pm -6pm) as well as loads more nibbles and snacks (think freshly shucked oysters, truffled mushroom arancini and crispy pork cheek slider) to fill any grumbling belly come the weekend. Get the deets here.
THE REGATTA HOTEL
For anyone with hanger issues, (that would be us), The Regatta is where you should be seating yourself for the entire summer. Every weekend until the end of February, Sunset Sessions will be popping up at this heaving watering-hole, serving Aperol Spritz to complement their mouth-watering custom Aperitivo menu, along with sick beats in the courtyard. Get the deets here.
As if things weren’t sweet enough, Aperol in partnership with the Australian Open are giving you the chance to get your hands on (AKA win) tickets to the Australian Open Final (is there anything better than the tennis come January!? Nope.). Plus, you’ll also score a Club Aperol prepaid card and Flight Centre voucher to cover your flights and accom’—you can find all the deets here.
