Champagne, live music and sunshine are the order of the day at these summer sessions

Though we never need an excuse to partake in a little afternoon Champagne and frivolity, when an event pops up offering just that, as well as waterfront vistas and a sun-drenched locale… well, what do they say about looking a gift horse in the mouth? Here to elevate our Friday evenings in the coming months is the Moët Ice Summer Sessions.

Hosting three bespoke Champagne celebrations in December, January and February at Viaduct Harbour’s HeadQuarters, the music will be playing and the effervescence flowing as revellers watch the sun disappear on the horizon. Serving the weather-appropriate Moët Ice by the goblet, we challenge you to find a more refreshing way to wet your whistle. As the only Champagne designed specifically to be enjoyed on the rocks, when you pair the perfectly chilled, bright and fruity drop to HeadQuarters’ waterfront aspect and rousing atmosphere, what you’re left with is an alluring means to ease into the weekend.

Bringing fresh DJs and amusements to the Viaduct Harbour with each session, the celebrations will kick off from 4-7pm on Friday 8th December, then again on 19th January and 16th February. For more information, keep an eye on the HeadQuarters website.
