There’s a new Aperol dealer in town and we have the number

Ostro have created a stunning Aperol Garden bar, for 30 days only.

Aperol is an Italian drink made of bitter orangegentianrhubarb, and cinchona. Intended to be a before-the-meal situation (apertif), a revival in its popularity has seen it start to be more of a whenever-you-fancy situation. Born in 1919, Aperol is a little like Campari but less bitter and with a lower alcohol content, and it’s being called summer’s drink of the season.

Hooray, then, for the arrival of a dedicated Aperol Garden Bar, on The Deck at Ostro; a stunning haven complete with  orange trees, fresco tiles and a gorgeous bubbling fountain. This limited-time-only locale is screaming out (or perhaps calling in a sultry Italian accent) to be enjoyed on these balmy, sticky evenings and we are hearing it loud and clear.

What: Aperol Garden bar
