Sacré Bleu! Customs House Is Bringing Back It’s Pop-Up Igloo Bar

Rug up, snow bunnies!

Raise your glass snow bunnies, and clink to the return of our fave Brissy winter event, Veuve Clicquot In The Snow, snowballing back to Customs House next month.

Hit the slopes Brissy-style with the help of this iconic French Champagne house that’s turning this riverside city landmark into a winter wonderland, complete with igloos, heart-warming nibbles, and signature winter styling.

From Thursday June 3, Veuve Clicquot will be pouring bubbles every Thursday and Friday from 4pm-9pm, and Saturday and Sunday 1pm-9pm throughout winter, so there’s plenty of time to break out the knitwear and enjoy some après ski in style.

In addition to Veuve, you can warm your insides with a selection of Australian and French wines, beers and cocktails from Bombay Sapphire and St Germaine, as well as delectable bites including Moreton Bay bug brioche rolls with lime mayo, scampi caviar blini with crème fraiche, whole baked brie served with crostini, and smoked duck rillettes. How magnifique!

For a true VIP French Alps experience, book an igloo chalet, revel in three hours of decadent service (at a minimum spend of $800), and get cosy while watching the sunset with your mon amour or entourage.
