APERITIVO HOUR IN THE DOLPHIN WINE ROOM
EVERY SUNDAY – THURSDAY, 5PM-7PM, $5-$7
Aperitivo Hour has been at the very heart of the Wine Room since the inception of the hotel just over a year ago. The concept has been based on Maurice’s experience and groundbreaking work at The Melbourne Wine Room in The George Hotel in Melbourne, which is to build a place of quality service, impeccable product and in as many words circle back to what ‘real hospitality’ is.
In its simplest form, the concept is very well priced drinks and delicious plates of super-value snacks from Sunday to Thursday, 5-7pm priced at a super-reasonable $5-7.
Executive Chef Monty Koludrovic and Wine Director James Hird have set out to create a space where, chefs who are friends, visiting winemakers or importers who are family, can drop by and taste with staff and customers alike. It is a meeting place, a place where friends and the wider community can come to catch up and engage in what they love with the creators of what they love.
The concept aims to be a place of creativity, providing access to some of Australia’s and the world’s most renowned chefs, wine makers and restaurateurs. Aperitivo Hour is about having a drink with friends and trying dishes from chefs and winemakers that ordinarily would be less accessible in a casual setting.
