Spritz Garden Pop-Up

Here's a jolly good way to spend your summer: hitting up a regency era-inspired, spritz-slinging English garden at Lutwyche's Crown Hotel. Right up until the end of February, the recently revamped pub is giving itself a makeover, complete with wisteria and ivy — and you can spend Brisbane's sultriest days hanging out there.

The Spritz Garden Pop-Up is a collaboration with French vodka label Grey Goose, so that's obviously what you'll be sipping. Head by any day you like to scope out the decor and the drinks menu — or, you can make a beeline to two specific events.

Thanks to bottomless garden brunch sessions at 12–2pm on Saturdays, your weekend plans now involve 90 minutes of non-stop spritz teapot cocktails, plus a brunch dish — think: black truffle toasties, croque madams, prawn rolls, yellowtail kingfish topped with caviar, and confit duck — for $69 per person for a 90-minute sitting.

And, on select dates — next at 1pm on Saturday, December 10 — there's also freshwater pearl jewellery-making classes — with tickets costing $65 per person to make one piece of jewellery, $85 for two pieces and $105 for three.

Clearly, it's all very much influenced by Netflix's Bridgerton, and by the current regencycore trend. So if that's your thing, this'll be bliss.
