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 27 – Saturday March 28: The NoMad Bar, a classic tavern located in New York City, is known for its beverage program that celebrates classically-focused cocktails, while delving into two new arenas: festive, large-format drinks and a selection of reserve cocktails crafted with rare spirits created by award-winning Vice President of Beverage, Leo Robitschek and Bar Director, Nathan McCarley-O’Neill, as well as Los Angeles Bar Director, Dave Purcell.
