Customs House is continuing their run of unmissable pop-up bars, this time in partnership with luxe Champagne house, Veuve Clicquot. The Veuve Clicquot Chalet will open to the public on Friday May 10 and is an Aspen-style winter paradise complete with individual Igloo chalets. It is set to have every visitor feeling thoroughly après-ski despite the venue’s sweeping Brisbane River views.
The best part? For the duration of the pop-up, a citrus-poached Moreton Bay Bug croissant with lime mayo, chips with parmesan and truffle aioli, and a glass of Veuve Clicquot Brut will be available for a cool $40 - the perfect way to spend an evening after work or stop by for a snack before a Saturday evening out on the town.
It wouldn’t be a playful winter retreat without a few cocktails, and the Veuve Clicquot Chalet certainly delivers; slide into a Clicquot Pear 75 (Belvedere Pure vodka, lemon juice, pear juice, and Veuve Clicquot Brut) and recline in a cosy chair and think of (or dream of!) time spent in the French Alps.
The Veuve Clicquot Chalet’s menu combines the best of a mild Queensland winter with classic cold-weather bites, including ocean trout toasties with crème fraîche and fennel marmalade and whole baked brie with thyme and crostini.
While walk-ins are welcome at the Veuve Clicquot Chalet, individual chalets can be reserved from Thursday through to Saturday from 4pm and Sunday from 12-4pm (minimum spends apply).
To snow-cap the playful glamour of the chalets, Veuve Clicquot will also host ‘Clicq-mas’, a Christmas celebration for the duration of July!
For a luxe winter experience with premium Champagne, irresistible bites, and Brisbane’s best views, the Veuve Clicquot Chalet and Clicquot Christmas at Customs House will have you wishing you could be snowed in.
