Chill out at Veuve Clicquot In The Snow – the new winter pop-up at Customs House
It’s a bit grey and dreary outside, which is perfect weather for rugging up! If you’re keen to brave the elements for a bit of glam winter-themed feasting, then you’ll want to head to Customs House for the return of Veuve Clicquot In The Snow – a Euro chalet-inspired pop-up featuring cosy igloos, mouth-watering snacks and free-flowing champagne. The pop-up officially returns Friday May 13, so break out your warmer threads and see out the cooler months in style.
Sure, Brisbane winters are decidedly milder than the chill experienced down south, but that doesn’t mean we can’t relish the precious moments that are devoid of the usual tropical heat. Every year we don our finest winter jackets and make tracks for Customs House, which transforms is open-air dining space into a wonderland of winter frivolity. From today, Friday May 13, until the end of June, the riverside patio at Customs House will once again be adorned in the familiar yellow-orange tones of Veuve Clicquot as the famed champagne brand hosts its annual mid-year pop-up Veuve Clicquot In The Snow. Evoking the cosy aesthetic of European chalets, the pop-up’s signature igloos (adorned in faux fur and winter-themed decor) will once again be available for you and your friends to hire, while a menu of snacks will help keep bellies full and insides warm.
This year’s Veuve Clicquot In The Snow menu features a delectable (and decadent) array of bites, starting with the pop-up’s signature Moreton Bay bug croissant and also boasting the likes of rabbit rilletes, mac ‘n’ cheese croquettes, baked whole brie, zucchini fritters with smoked salmon and dill, and Tasmanian Pacific oysters. Those more inclined to graze can nibble on platters topped with Woodside Jersey brie, Berry’s Creek oak blue and West Country Farmhouse cave-aged cheddar. A visit to Veuve Clicquot In The Snow isn’t complete without a flute or two of some bubbly – three Veuve drops are on offer (Brut NV, Rosé NV and a 2012 vintage) alongside glasses of white, red and rosé, four kinds of beer and four cocktails.
Veuve Clicquot in the Snow will launch at Customs House on Friday May 13 and will operate on Thursdays and Fridays from 4:00–9:00 pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 1:00–9:00 pm. Click here for info on how to book an igloo for you and your pals.
