Aria x Ruinart Summer Wine Bar
Celebrate summer with A-class champagne at this harbourside pop-up.
in partnership with
We're going to go ahead and call it: one of the best parts of spending summer in Sydney is going to one of our many pop-up bars. Among the latest to launch is Aria and Ruinart's Summer Wine Bar — a collaboration between the harbourside fine diner and the world's first champagne house, founded a whopping 291 years ago.
From December 3 to February 13, each Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Aria's Wharf Room and Terrace will be transformed into a 1950s French-vibe pop-up — think warm-hued velvet, wood tones and al fresco-style seating. To drink, expect flutes and magnums of Ruinart champagne, plus martinis and whisky highballs aplenty. On the a la carte snack menu, created by Executive Chef Joel Bickford, you'll find oysters, abalone XO toast with black sesame and crab sandwiches, as well as a selection of cheese and charcuterie.
Capacity is limited to just 20 people, so bookings are encouraged. There are seatings available at 5.30pm, 7pm and 8pm; however, walk-ins are also welcome.
Aria x Ruinart Summer Wine Bar is on every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening from December 3 to January 30. To book, head here.
