Summer in Melbourne is here (fiiiiiinally), 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 three, Aperol Spritz bars are popping up all over 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.
Sunset Sessions by Aperol Spritz will be popping up at Gradi in Brunswick for the last time this Sunday. With a menu full of pizza and all things Italiano, it’s the perfect place to spritz your way through to the end of the weekend (signature Aperol cocktails are only $12 a pop!). Get all the deets here.

For anyone with hanger issues, (that would be us), Prince of Wales at St Kilda is where you should be seating yourself for the entire summer. From 3pm every Sunday, Sunset Sessions will be popping up at this heaving watering-hole, serving $12 Aperol Spritz to complement their mouth-watering menu, along with sick beats on the breezy balcony. Ends mid-February. Get all the deets here.
There’s nothing better than a summer day trip, so it’s time to get the crew out of the concrete jungle and make your way to Lorne for the ultimate Sunday session. Every weekend from 2pm, Cuda Bar will play host to Aperol Spritz’s Sunset Sessions on the deck, with chilled beats, sea views and the classic Aperol Spritz for only $10 a pop. So spend the morning at the beach, then come by and soak up the last of the afternoon sun. Ends mid-February. Get all 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.
