Auckland’s very first dedicated Aperol Spritz Garden has arrived!

With Aperol Spritz certifiably being the drink of summer, and the hottest (and arguably wettest) month of the year upon us, we are immensely excited to announce that Auckland’s very own Aperol Garden has officially opened at The Deck at Ostro. Launching today at 5pm and running for 30 days only, the downtown bar has been transformed into an awe-inspiring Italian Garden — the work of visionaries Jess Mentis and Vinci Ginnen — where Aucklanders will be able to dabble in their favourite drink of the moment.

The space has been brought to life with orange trees, fresco tiles, a Venetian-inspired bar and romantic fountain bubbling with orange aroma inspired by the beloved Italian aperitif. To attend this memorable pop-up event, seats can be guaranteed by booking here ($40 per person, every Thursday-Saturday).

The Aperol Garden’s opening hours will be Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 5-9pm.
