Can’t make it to the slopes this winter? Don't worry, with Veuve Clicquot's magic, Britomart's Seafarers will transform into a chic alpine chalet offering Aucklanders the chance to take part in the French champagne house’s annual winter festival, Clicquot in the Snow in Queenstown.
The Clicquot Chalet is a nod to the modish ski resorts of France, making it the perfect inner-city hideaway to enjoy a flute of Veuve Clicquot Champagne this winter. Think faux fur throws, contemporary blush pink walls, a warming fireplace, pops of Clicquot yellow and of course, the finest in French cuisine.
Guests will be able to visit the pop-up on level six at Seafarers from 6 July till 11 August between 6pm – 10pm every Thursday to Saturday night. The Clicquot Chalet offers a curated menu with a range of gourmet food options including caviar and salmon roe duo served with handmade crisps, Veuve Clicquot panna cotta and the Madame Reuben sandwich, all paired exclusively with Veuve Clicquot Champagne.
Seafarers has put the cool into this winter chalet hang-out where you can write home about it – literally! The pop-up will offer guests the chance to send their own ‘Clicquot Mail’ with bespoke postcards available to send warm winter greetings to friends and family all over the globe, spreading the alpine festivities far and wide.
Dubbed the most stylish event of the season, the four-day champagne festival’s Auckland extension will bring the best of Après Ski chic to town.
