Club Aperol at The Australian Open

Aperol Spritz goes from strength to strength this summer, unveiling a bigger and better Club Aperol at The Australian Open, complete with not one but two Aperol Clubhouses on site at the tennis!

The Garden Square clubhouse is a welcome sanctuary away from all the tennis action. Guests can lap up the January sunshine in one of Club Aperol’s VIP Italian pergolas, with a delicious and refreshing glass of Aperol Spritz in hand. Head on over during aperitivo hour to catch rotating DJs spinning killer tunes or come by any time for an aperitivo box of Italian cheeses, charcuterie and olives or Meditteranean-style roasted vegetables, the perfect pairings for your spritz.

In true Italian style, aperitivo boards will be with compliments of Aperol on Friday and Saturday afternoons at Club Aperol during aperitivo hour (commencing at 4PM).

The clubhouse design oozes Italian preppy style, with tennis racquets covering the bright Aperol-orange walls from floor to ceiling, bold neon lighting, luxury seating and verdant greenery.

In the same design will be Aperol’s second clubhouse, which sees the iconic Italian brand partner with 400 Gradi [Brunswick’s woodfire pizza connoisseurs] who will be serving up their famous margherita pizzas.
