Veuve Clicquot is transforming Auckland’s favourite rooftop bar into a winter wonderland

A prolific waterfront rooftop destination is being taken over by the luxurious Veuve Clicquot for an entire month from the 19th July. SEVEN is set to be transformed into The Clicquot Chalet — Auckland’s edition of Queenstown’s iconic Clicquot in the Snow — and will give Aucklanders the perfect spot to cosy up in over the cold season.

The chalet will be festooned in Veuve Clicquot’s iconic yellow shade that will shine through the grey winter days and offer an exciting escape from what is typically the gloomiest month. Chalet-goers can treat themselves to glittering flutes of Veuve Clicquot Champagne along with divine food pairings that will be on hand to elevate the experience.

Those who have dined at SEVEN will be aware of how capable this eatery is at tantalising the tastebuds, but let us explain for the people who are yet to sample the delicious offering. The dishes featured at the chalet will be a line-up of SEVEN’s most popular items, including the popcorn shrimp, served with creamy yet slightly spicy sriracha mayo and finished with fragrant fried basil and chives, the beef tataki with black truffle dressing, the Big Glory Bay salmon taco and the infamous chicken katsu bao.

Taking things up a notch, Veuve Clicquot and SEVEN have also conceived the ultimate winter treat — a Valrhona chocolate fondue served with pillowy marshmallows which, alongside the blankets and throws that will be available to bundle up in, will really set the mood for the ideal wintry retreat. Crisp drinks, delicious food and rousing tunes spun by SEVEN’s resident DJ, Soraya LaPread, The Clicquot Chalet is set to transport us mountain-side and will be open from Tuesday to Saturday until 19th August.

If the chalet has you impressed, you’re bound to enjoy the main Clicquot in the Snow festival in Queenstown — missing out would be a missed opportunity. This is the ninth time the hotly-anticipated festival has been put on, and it’s not too late to buy tickets for this year’s iteration. Click here to find more information.
