Merivale and Campari have transformed the ivy precinct into a world of Campari for this year’s Campari Red Nights Series.
Running from 17 September to 12 October, Campari Red Nights invites guests to step into the world of Campari, inspired by the brand’s strong artistic heritage and of course, the versatile Italian aperitif itself.
The month-long festivities officially launched on Friday 21 September, taking guests on a journey through Ash Street and culminating at ivy’s famous Pool Club – with drinks, music, street art, dancers and liver performers along the way.
Pool Club will transform from 5pm-late for every Friday during the takeover, with special Campari cocktails and drinks offers, DJs and live entertainment.
Throughout the month, Ash St. Cellar and Pool Club will feature the timeless ‘Campari Soda’ theatrically put together using a specially designed Campari siphon, served over ice and garnished with a zesty orange wedge.
The aperitivo drinking experience is also a focus, with iconic cocktails like the ‘pineapple Americano’ made with pineapple infused Campari, red vermouth, and soda water; ‘Milano Sbagliato’ with Campari, mandarin juice, lemon juice, sugar syrup and prosecco; and the traditional ‘Negroni’ with equal parts Campari, gin and red vermouth, all available for guests to enjoy.
ivy’s hatted rooftop restaurant, uccello, and the intimate, new Spanish hideaway, Bar Topa, will also be serving classic premix Campari Sodas, in a first for the Australian market.
