Negroni Week is here (as if we needed an excuse to sip our favourite Campari cocktail), so we’ve rounded up a list of Aussie bars offering the best Negroni deals.
PS Did you know Negroni Week is actually for charity? Each venue has to sign up and donate to an official charity partner so it’s a win-win for all.
Not only does the delightful Rozelle restaurant offer up a chocolate Negroni, but ReccoLab will give you complimentary aperitivo platters with cheeses and charcuterie. But as good as free Prosciutto Di San Daniele is, you’ll want to order the famous La Focaccia Con Formaggio Di Recco – it’s the only place in Sydney where you can find such a treat.
Think two thin crispy focaccia pizza-like bread sheets with warm Italian stracchino cheese oozing from between those layers, topped with prosciutto and truffle. Rare, delicious and all washed down with a bitter Negroni.
The Imperial Hotel, Sydney
Sydney’s favourite gay bar is getting a little wild with its Negroni Week offering, their take on the classic is Campari, Vermouth and a good slosh of gin or mescal. Don’t forget the drag shows!
Black Bear Lodge, Brisbane
Two words: Negroni Fountain. That’s what you’ll find at one of the country’s biggest aperitivo parties in Brissie’s Fortitude Valley. Oh, and there’ll be DJs.
This tropical waterfront bar is offering Smoked Negroni using Mt uncle bushfire Gin made in the classic style.
Cecconi’s, Melbourne CBD
The Negroni was always meant to be a before-dinner cocktail so it’s always a good strategy to head to an Italian eating place for the best experience. Cecconi’s is known for its epic creamy pasta and meat-heavy mains so you’re in for a treat post cocktail.
Bank Street Social, Adelaide
Everyone loves a bargain – BSS is slinging ten buck Negronis all week.
This prohibition-style bar haS three Negroni specials up for grabs including the Boulevardier Flip: Rye, Campari, Sweet Vermouth, Sugar, and Egg.
