Summer has suddenly rolled into town on a hot and breathless wind and to say it’s given us a thirst would be an absolute understatement.
So if you’re like us and you’re also a fan of gin and tonic—and let’s face it, who isn’t?—you’re going to want to hear this news.
A pop up bar slinging signature G&T's by Fever-Tree and Bombay Sapphire has just opened at Wynyard Pavilion, Steinlager’s official supporter’s bar of Emirates Team New Zealand, where you can catch all the racing action while basking in the sun, with a cheeky gin and tonic in hand. Score.
The English garden-inspired space boasts a retractable roof, screens to watch the racing and the pop up will be hosting local DJs on the decks all summer long until March.
Rock up to the dedicated G&T bar and select your choice of Bombay Sapphire gin and mix with your favourite Fever-Tree tonic or soda, topped with garnishes you choose picked from the on-site garden. Order a dram of the must-try new Bombay Bramble—a blackberry and raspberry-infused gin perfectly paired with Fever-Tree lemon tonic and garnished with summer berries. Tastes like summer!
