The Aperol Spritz Social comes to Manchester

Italy’s favourite libation comes to Manchester Spinningfields...

Aperol Spritz, Italy’s favourite libation comes to Manchester Spinningfields this June, with a taste of the famously stylish Italian lifestyle. Celebrating Wimbledon fortnight, the Aperol Spritz Social pop up bar is a unique setting that gives escape from the city rush and a place to relax with a chilled glass of Aperol Spritz,  which is fast becoming one of the UK’s favourite drinks.

The Aperol Spritz Social will be open to the public from Monday 24th June until Sunday 7th July. Serving daily Sunday to Thursday from 12pm – 12am and Friday and Sunday 12pm -1am; making the Aperol Spritz Social the perfect spot to meet friends, hang out and immerse yourself in the exciting and cosmopolitan cityscape of Manchester’s richly varied metropolis of culture and architectural excellence.

Coinciding with Wimbledon, tennis fans can take in the action of the courtside on a giant TV screen, while enjoying Aperol’s sparkling 3-2-1 Spritz serve from the comfort of Aperol Spritz deck chairs. The pop up bar also offers the ideal retreat from the shops, and setting to take in the sun, people watch and enjoy post work refreshments over a game of ping pong.  Come evening, the Aperol Spritz Stage hosts performances from up and coming musicians from 6.30pm on Friday’s and Saturday’s.
