As we all resign ourselves to a summer of staycations, Aperol have teamed up with The Oast House down in Spinningfields to bring their very own picture-perfect Italian beach bar to the people of Manchester – offering visitors an idyllic, holiday-like setting.
The Aperol Spritz & Spiaggia is a Mediterranean escape, set inside one of the city’s biggest and best outdoor terraces in The Oast House.
It’ll feature a stunning outdoor beach bar, including a jet ski and Fiat 500s in Aperol’s iconic orange, as well as cabana-style seating, alongside perfectly-poured Aperol Spritz and light bites, plus, to kick-off the Aperitivo Hour every day, DJs will take centre stage to guarantee good vibes and beach party tunes.
Discover the beach bar from Thursday 5th August – Sunday 15th August, with select areas available to book via Eventbrite for a much-needed evening of togetherness with friends on the beach.
Loris Contro, Aperol UK Brand Ambassador, said: “The taste of an Aperol Spritz is enough to transport you to the shores of Italy, and The Aperol Spritz & Spiaggia is here to make it a reality. At a time when not many of us are able to enjoy an overseas getaway, we wanted to bring all the beauty and joyful vibes of the Italian beach scene to the UK. Swing in the sun and escape to the Mediterranean whilst sipping on a refreshing and flavourful Aperol Spritz – I’ll say Salute to that!”
Danny Leach, General Manager of The Oast House said “We are so excited to bring a slice of Italy to the heart of Manchester. It is often said Manchester has everything but a beach, and thanks to The Aperol Spritz & Spiaggia at The Oast House we can now say it does! With so many of us missing out on holidays abroad yet again this summer, we’re delighted we can bring the beach bar vibes closer to home, with a truly authentic Italian spiaggia.”
Whilst guests are able to walk in and enjoy the Spiaggia for free, it is advised that beach-goers get in there quick to secure the best spot on the beach by booking a reservable area online.
