While it might seem like everything now has its own ‘international day’ of celebration (seriously, there’s even a World Ice-Cream-for-Breakfast day), when it comes to Champagne, we rarely need an excuse to pop a bottle of the best (but it sure does help). So, on Friday, October the 28th — the date of this year’s official World Champagne Day — we will be raising a glass to the effervescent drink that has long been imbibed to mark all of our most important milestones and celebrations, and heading to one of our favourite Auckland spots to do so.
Hosting a convivial celebration at which its impressive wine list will rightfully take centre stage, Faraday’s Bar in Parnell is the only place you will want to find yourself next Friday. Kicking off at 12pm and running until 10pm, this intimate, exquisitely-appointed spot (nestled in the corner of luxury department store, Faradays) will be pouring flutes of exceptional Champagne, and offering complimentary chocolate pairings with every glass of Dom Pérignon Vintage 2012, Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2008 and Ruinart Rosé served. Moreover, those in attendance from 5pm to 8pm will be treated to the smooth stylings of live jazz, curating the perfect Friday night vibe.
Given that the Champagne and chocolate pairings will only be available while stocks last, and we anticipate this to be a very popular occasion, we recommend securing your spot for World Champagne Day at Faraday’s Bar now, by booking a table here, or by calling on (09) 217 1017. Trust us, you don’t want to miss out.
