Spring Spritz at BQ
Add fruit-flavoured cocktails, DJ-spun beats and a wander around a cherry blossom tree to your Thursday night at this inner-city pop-up.
August 31, 2022
Goodbye winter, hello spring — yes, September is upon us for another year. 'Tis the season to shed those woolly jumpers, smell the blossoming flowers, enjoy the sunny weather and say cheers to Brisbane's sultry climate with a cocktail or several.
One place where you can do just that: Brisbane Quarter, with the CBD precinct embracing spring on three Thursday nights in September — September 15, 22 and 29 — via a pop-up it's dubbed Spring Spritz at BQ. Here, you can add fruit-flavoured cocktails, DJ-spun beats and a wander around a cherry blossom tree to your evening between 5.30–7pm.
If the tipples have caught your attention, you have two to choose from, both thanks to the W Brisbane bar team. The Malfy Gin and Tea cocktail comes with your choice of Malfy Gin (limone, grapefruit or arancia) and TBAR iced tea (apple oolong, Japanese cherry or hibiscus flower), and will set you back $16 — or there's the Glenlivet Spring Breeze with Glenlivet Caribbean Reserve whisky, apple juice, ginger candy and mint for $18.
Live DJ sets will soundtrack each evening — and the precinct will also boast that giant cherry blossom tree, plus a floral archway decked out in pink, red, lavender and white hues, and lawn furniture to hang out in.
Also, Brisbane Quarter's eateries will be doing spring-themed dishes, including Persone, Tenya, Phat Boy, Phoenix and Three Blue Ducks at W Brisbane. On the menu: lobster spaghetti, soft shell crab sushi rolls, roast pork belly, smoked beetroot and more.
