When we think of celebrations, we automatically think of champagne. Drinks trends may come and go, but champagne is timeless and elegant.
“I only drink champagne on two occasions, when I am in love and when I am not,” quipped French fashion designer Coco Chanel, famously.
And whether you want to treat a lover, a friend or yourself, there’s no better place to sip on some luxurious crisp bubbles than San Carlo Champagne Bar at intu Trafford Centre.
Located in the newly refurbished Accessories Hall on Lower Level, this all-day venue offers everything from your favourite fizz by the glass to non-alcoholic cocktails and local gins.
It’s a beautiful space, with plush leather seating around a gleaming marble bar and a giant sculptural cloud chandelier comprised of 1000 individual cast glass discs, each one hand made in the Veneto region of Italy.
And this week, the San Carlo experts are hosting an exclusive champagne tasting, so you can really celebrate in style.
You’ll be taken through an assortment of fine champagnes on the evening, learning more about each one as you go.
And the fine bubbles will be accompanied by a delicious San Carlo food pairing board, too.
You can pair your fizz with Italian antipasti – a selection of hams, salami or cheeses and marinated vegetables from around Italy, served with moreish salt and rosemary focaccia.
Whether you’re coupled up or happily single, it’s the perfect Valentine’s treat.
The Valentine’s champagne tasting takes place on Thursday 13th February at 7pm, San Carlo Champagne Bar, Lower Level, Selfridges intu Trafford Centre, M17 8DA. Tickets are priced at £20.
