Make The Most Of Summer With These Waterfront Pop-Up Bars

Picture this: You and your friends are relaxing under a parasol, soaking up the glorious sun by the glistening water with a refreshing tipple in hand. Sounds pretty good, right? Well, consider this summer dream a reality because Melbourne just scored a string of French Riviera-inspired vodka bars to celebrate the launch of Grey Goose's limited-edition Riviera bottle—and we're totally in.

There will be three Melbourne pop-ups sprinkled throughout the warmer months, so there’s no reason not to get the gang together and relish our beloved summer. Each venue takeover will be decked out Riviera-style as an ode to European seaside luxury, and serve up speciality cocktails including espresso martinis and Grey Goose Le Grand Fizz—a refreshing summer cocktail made with the highest quality Grey Goose vodka, sweet notes of St Germain elderflower liqueur, a touch of bright citrus and soda. There will also be a slew of musical acts, DJs and loads of ‘gram-worthy dishes and delights. 

Trust us when we say, these très chic pop-ups are a must-do this summer—and a great place to unleash your (sophisticated) silly season spirit. We’ll meet you at the bar.
