Who loves champagne and movies? For many of us girls, this is practically our Friday night ritual, am I right? Well, forget the ratty PJ’s, the worn sofa, and those cheap two-dollar bottles. How about getting a bit dressed up and lounging in a magical secret garden while sipping on some quality champagne for a change?
Smack in the heart of the historic village of Yorkville, the patio at d|bar has been transformed into an enchanting outdoor oasis. The film festival can get a little overwhelming, so this little space is specifically designed to offer a serene escape from the crowd. Teatro Verde has designed this little, hidden paradise with lush palms and florals – the perfect place to relax before or after a movie screening (and also sure to be a huge hit with the Instagrammers!).
And oh yes, we mentioned champagne earlier. d|bar will be serving Perrier-Jouët’s iconic Belle Epoque 2007 vintage champagne. This iconic champagne has been one of the finest vintages in the past 20 years, with notes of “magnolia, honeysuckle and citrus, clothed in just-ripe pear and peach notes with a hint of minerality.” Enjoy it on its own or in one of the delicious bubbly champagne cocktails created by famed chef Daniel Boulud.
To accompany the champagne, a new all-day summer “bubbles and bites” menu designed to complement the rich aromas of the vintage Belle Epoque will be available. These enticing bites include oysters with salmon roe, grilled octopus with lemon chutney, beef tartare, and goat cheese sachel.
This little pop-up oasis will be available until Sunday, September 18th. The patio is open daily from 11:00 am until closing time. No reservations required – it’s on a first come, first serve basis only.
Will you show up to drink some champagne? This is an event of the summer not to be missed!
