As the British prepare for a summer break, Aperol, the Italian aperitivo, is opening its own quaint Italian beach bar in the heart of Manchester – and offering visitors an idyllic, vacation-like setting.
Bringing city dwellers away from the hustle and bustle of Manchester’s urban jungle to the tranquil Mediterranean coast, Aperol Spritz & Spiaggia is the ideal place to meet friends and family for an early evening aperitivo.
The Mediterranean hideaway at The Oast House in Manchester celebrates the summer sun in true Italian style. The white sand beach has a stunning outdoor beach bar, including a jet ski and Fiat 500 in Aperol’s iconic orange – the perfect setting for summer photos with friends. Visitors are invited to relax in the relaxing cabana-style seating or take a seat on the bar swing for the ultimate vacation feeling.
And since no Italian short vacation is complete without enjoying an authentic aperitivo with friends and loved ones, The Aperol Spritz & Spiaggia naturally serves perfectly poured Aperol Spritz and light bites, so that guests greet the summer and enjoy the feeling of sand under their toes. At the start of the Aperitivo Hour, the focus will be on DJs every day, creating a good atmosphere and beach party melodies.
Discover the beach bar from Thursday 5 August to Sunday 15 August with selected areas that can be booked through Eventbrite for a much-needed evening with friends on the beach.
Loris Contro, Aperol UK Brand Ambassador, said: “The taste of an Aperol Spritz is enough to take 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 of the beauty and happy vibes of the Italian beach scene to the UK. Swing in the sun and escape the Mediterranean while sipping a refreshing and aromatic Aperol Spritz – I say hello! “
Danny Leach, General Manager of The Oast House, added: “We are very excited to bring a piece of Italy to the heart of Manchester. It is often said that Manchester is anything but a beach, and thanks to The Aperol Spritz & Spiaggia at The Oast House, we can now say it is! Since so many of us are missing their vacation abroad again this summer, we are pleased that we can bring the beach bar atmosphere closer to us with a really authentic Italian Spiaggia. “
While guests can enter and enjoy the Spiaggia for free, it is recommended that beachgoers get on there quickly to secure the best spot on the beach by booking an area that can be reserved online. To book, simply visit EventBrite here.
