Croissants and Petanque
Mosman's leafy rooftop bar welcomes spring with four Sunday sessions dedicated to French pastries, bubbles and games.
This latest lower north shore Sunday session lets you spend a decadent afternoon eating loaded croissants, sipping bubbles and playing a casual game of pétanque as you watch the sunset.
Greenhouse-inspired rooftop bar The Fernery is hosting a series of retro-French events across four Sundays, starting September 15. While you enjoy free rounds of the game — which is often played among the rolling vineyards of Provence — you can sip French rosé ($12 a glass) and Lanson champagne ($99 a bottle).
Punters can also pair these drinks with one of the OTT croissants. Choose from one filled with oozy brie and truffle, or the sweet chocolate cookie crumble version — with each freshly baked pastry costing $17.
For those hungry for something a little more substantial, the menu will also include steak au poivre with frites: a perfectly cooked peppercorn-crusted steak served with a creamy pan sauce and sweet potato chips ($28).
Croissants and Pétanque runs from 11am–6pm.
