The Resort at Pelican Hill, a stunning 504-acre resort in Newport Beach, California, will launch a series of Aperitivo Hour(s) pop-ups throughout the month of March, in collaboration with three of the nation’s most renowned bars — Old Lightning Bar, Peppi’s Cellar and The NoMad Bar. Guest bartenders will take over the resort’s Coliseum Pool & Grill each Friday and Saturday throughout March. Guests will enjoy a variety of cocktails prepared by the bars’ talented bartenders for $12 each.
The Resort at Pelican Hill is taking the tradition of Aperitivo culture to new heights. Centuries ago, Italians sought for an Aperitivo – a small gathering with wine and mixed drinks paired with light bites before dinner – after a long day to wind down. Today, the tradition has been modernized as a time in the late afternoon for low proof cocktails with friends before dinner or a night out. The resort is infusing this experience and pop-up concept into a month-long event.
Friday, March 20 – Saturday March 21: Peppi’s Cellar, a swanky subterranean bar located in New York City, is known for pairing its massive spirits selection with a menu of upscale Italian fare and a comfortable vibe that channels an old-school bar in Rome.
About Peppi’s Cellar
Peppi’s Cellar is an award winning, subterranean bar from NYC which pairs its massive spirits selection with a comfortable vibe channeling an old-school bar in Rome. With a dose of Down-Under hospitality, Peppi’s Cellar comes courtesy of a group of Australian restaurant-industry veterans (Jason Scott & Robert Marchetti), who created famed Sydney haunts such as Shady Pines, The Baxter Inn and Icebergs Dining Room and Bar. When in New York, signature cocktails and 700 spirits can be enjoyed at Peppi’s 30 feet bar, or at one of the room’s numerous candlelit tables and booths that give a nod to Italian cafe society.
