Tetto Rooftop Bar and Corbett & Claude bring coastal-Italian vibes to Everton Park

Stretching from Positano to Vietri Sul Mare, Italy's legendary Amalfi Coast is regarded as one of the most beautiful seaside stretches in all of Europe. Picturesque coastal vistas, pastel-coloured seaside towns, phenomenal beaches – there's a good reason the region is a must-visit holiday destination. But what if you didn't need to board a plane and travel across the globe to experience a slice of this paradise? Tetto Rooftop Bar is a chic drinks destination inspired by the sun-soaked bars of coastal Italy. Officially opening today, Tetto joins eatery Corbett & Claude as the newest arrivals at Everton Plaza's Park Lane precinct, creating a sceney two-level hub of on-point Italian-inspired hospitality. more
