From jelly cocktails to a rooftop cinema – Seafarers have whipped up eight events for you to finish off summer in style.
Imagine a sultry summer evening, grown-ups attacking pink sundaes with the vigour of sugar-obsessed kids. A vegetable garden serving vege-inspired cocktails, an Asian fusion eatery with an opium den speakeasy, champagne high tea with high fashion or a movie that you literally become part of — that’s only a few of the events in store for you. The Seafarers Summer Series is a pop up of eight activations commencing Saturday 25 February, inviting guests to the Seafarers rooftop at Britomart to enjoy this unique experience. But really it comes down to an ironclad universal truth: drinking and eating on rooftops is just more fun.
Check out each of the events below and book your tickets here.
