Many a good idea has come out of discussions had over Negroni’s, as Iceberg’s Maurice Terzini and Bar Americano’s Matthew Bax can attest.
During a long night out in Venice, the bar owners had the idea to bring Melbourne’s Bar Americano up the coast to Bondi’s iconic Icebergs Dining Room and Bar and create a bar within a bar.
With the assistance of Bacardi-Martini Australia (BMA) and their brands Grey Goose Vodka, Tequila Patrón, and Bombay Sapphire Gin, the idea is fi ally coming to fruition with a special residency in July.
Usually found tucked away within Melbourne’s laneways, Bar Americano famously holds only ten people standing, so when recreating this at Icebergs the bar will accommodate seven guests seated or 10 guests standing.
This exclusive and intimate space will be available for individual and group bookings from Thursday 1 July through to Wednesday 4 August, featuring cocktails including Bacardi-Martini’s premium spirit brands, Tequila Patrón, Grey Goose Vodka and Bombay Sapphire Gin.
With 20 years of experimental and ground-breaking bartending hidden deep within their cocktails, Bar Americano prides itself on restricting the drinks menu to just eight to ten select cocktails per night, reflecting the season and Bax’s creative whims . Every sip unveils the layers and secrets behind what Bax describes as “simple” classic.
Bacardi-Martini’s Marketing Director for Australia and New Zealand, Sarah Nichols said “This is an exciting opportunity for Bacardi-Martini Australia to have three of its of premium brands at Bondi’s iconic Icebergs Bar, with the backdrop of one of Australia’s best views.
With the assistance of Tequila Patrón, Grey Goose Vodka and Bombay Sapphire Gin, Bar Americano will give cocktail lovers an intimate experience by receiving unmatched service and the upmost care and quality into the signature cocktails they know and love, as well as adding a few surprises along the way.
The event will take place at Icebergs Bar, 1 Notts Avenue Bondi Beach Thursday 5th August through to Sunday 5th September.
