Winter Lodge at Riverbar and Kitchen
Embrace winter by the water — and by the fire pits — with beer-infused cheese fondue, DIY brownie s'mores and mulled Venetian cider.
When you live in a city that's usually streaming with sunshine all year round, the onset of even slightly colder weather can be a shock. Fear not, "brrrrrrrr"-yelling Brisbanites — the frosty season comes bearing gifts. Indeed, at Riverbar and Kitchen's Winter Lodge setup between Thursday, July 1–Tuesday, August 31, there'll be plenty of things to heat you up.
On the menu for winter: beer-infused cheese fondue for $20, DIY brownie s'mores for $20 as well and — to keep you extra warm — open flames, fire pits and faux fur throws. You'll find them on offer every day, alongside mulled Venetian cider, cushions and fairy lights. Feeling extra hungry? You can also get a winter feast if you're with at least one other person, with roasted lamb shanks, mashed potato, roasted vegetables and garlic bread on offer for $45 per person.
That said, entry is free, as is the warm, fuzzy feeling you'll get when you've been heated head-to-toe by hot cocktails, hot food and hanging out by the fire — all while socially distancing, of course.
Riverbar is also doing a few other cocktails, including wintry berry spritzes, if you just want to trust alcohol in general to warm you up.
