Get in line ladies, Garden Kitchen & Bar are launching a Moët & Chandon vending machine this Saturday, June 24th!
Holding 495 chilled bottles of the iconic Moët & Chandon Impérial, the champagne vending machine is a delightful addition to the already stylish, oasis-style space.
Best enjoyed while donning your best party dress and with your girlfriends by your side, Mini Moët is the perfect accompaniment to Garden Kitchen & Bar’s signature Crab Cakes made with Mooloolaba spanner crab, a serve of oysters served natural or with fresh citrus and chilli, and a charcuterie platter to share on the sun drenched deck.
Containing 200ml Mini Moët bottles, one of the world’s most-loved champagnes, the machine only takes Moët & Chandon branded gold tokens and once dispensed is then consumed through a gold sipper that sits on top of the bottle, turning it into its very own champagne flute, or used as a pourer to share between two glasses. It’s heaven, is it not?
Following in the footsteps of our London friends, a machine such as this is set to catapult the sophisticated venue into local super-bar status.
It’s also the best way to bring a little summer back into your life on these dreary winter days.
Tokens at the ready!
LOCATION: Garden Kitchen & Bar, The Star, 1 Casino Drive, Broadbeach
A world of fantasy is set to grace the Gold Coast with the premiere of BLANC de BLANC, a sizzling circus show direct from London’s West End.
From the creative minds behind Madonna’s recent Rebel Heart Tour, this brand new production will have audiences immersed in a world of overflowing champagne bottles, sparkles and glimmer, the perfect treat for those who love a little glitz and glam.
Selling-out its critically acclaimed seasons at the Sydney Opera House, Brisbane Festival and London’s West End, BLANC de BLANC will serve up titillating acts to both excite and delight.
The show brings the finest cabaret and acrobatic talent from around the world into a wild, shimmering night – expect big moves, great tunes, lots of skin, and more than a few surprises!
Director Scott Maidment says, “I wanted to create a new circus show, which I like to call ‘champagne cabaret’ that transports the audience into a heady, bubble filled overflowing, crazy party. Every act in the show is inspired by champagne, with giant bubbles, foam, a human champagne fountain and lots more surprises!”
It’s a beautifully unique addition to 2017’s Bleach Festival and a definite must-see.
Is there anything lovelier than enjoying tiny delicacies accompanied by a glass of chilled Laurent Perrier and tea served in a beautiful floral teacup?
We think not.
