The Spring Blossom Pop-Up Bar

A millennial pink pop-up celebrating spring and raising funds for Kiwi kids in need.

Are you ready for fine wine, springtime, jazzy beats and sweet treats? The Glass Goose down Federal Street is about to explode into a springtime kaleidoscope of millennial pink.

The month-long Spring Blossom pop-up, kicking off on 7 September, promises to speak to our inner-child, or at least their sweet tooth, with sugary treats, designer cupcakes and freakshakes from Auckland's Real Rad Food, Cereal Killa, Kookie Haus and more.

Festooned in seasonal cherry blossoms, The Glass Goose will be serving a selection of pink drinks such as candy floss wine-spritzers, rosé slushies and popsicle Sauvignon for all to enjoy. The amazing ladies of Waiheke winery Soho are also taking over the Goose for a very specific reason: to raise funds for Kiwi kids in need.

Soho's Pink Sheep range features a rosé and a new introduced Pinot Noir, with rumours on the grapevine that a Sauvignon Blanc is soon to be added to the range. What makes these wines so special is that 50 cents from the sale of every bottle goes to a Kiwi charity. The team at The Glass Goose has chosen to match Soho's generosity by donating 50 of their own cents for the duration of the pop-up with all funds going to children's charity Variety.

Just maybe make a dentist appointment for October as this pop-up for a cause is sweet enough, both in sentiment and in sugar, to give you a toothache.
