Veuve Clicquot Chalet at Customs House
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, open to the public from Friday, May 10, is an Aspen-style winter paradise complete with individual pop-up Igloo chalets, and is set to have every visitor feeling thoroughly après-ski despite the venue’s sweeping Brisbane River views.
Enjoy glasses of Veuve Clicquot NV for $20 and bottles for $100, while bottles of Veuve Clicquot Rosé (the first ever sparkling rosé, developed by the Grande Dame, Madame Clicquot, herself) and Veuve Clicquot 2008 Vintage will be available for your luxe night spent in the Chalet, as well as a selected range of wines and beers.
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) or a frosty Polish Mule (Belvedere Pure, elderflower syrup, Fever Tree ginger beer, Angostura bitters and lime), 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. 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 on your way up the Saturday night mountain!
While walk-ins are welcome at the Veuve Clicquot Chalet, individual chalets can be reserved from Thursday through to Saturday from 4:00 pm and Sunday from 12:00–4:00 pm (minimum spends apply).
