While we all know that a dreamy white New York-style Christmas will probably never happen here in sunny Brisbane, Sixteen Antlers and Goldfinch have put together the next best thing! Throughout the month of June, both venues will be popping some super special items on their menus - perfect for a night on the ice-rink at King George Square.
From June 18 to July 31, you can kick back at Sixteen Antlers with a seasonal share platter while enjoying the best of both fire and ice with the Frozen Flame cocktail, a combination of vodka, Cointreau, blue curacao, vanilla, lemonade, and coconut shavings topped with a flaming lime — the perfect combo to heat things up!
There are a variety of event options at Sixteen Antlers, too, so it doesn’t matter what night you’re free to stop in! Head in on Tuesday date nights for an ice-skate sesh and some cheeky cocktails or enjoy everyone's favourite decade with Thursday '90s night. Wind down the week with a drink and check out of the flame installations on the weekend! The world is your oyster.
Over at Goldfinch is every dessert fiend’s dream with a dedicated hot chocolate menu, featuring fancy winter-themed combos like peanut butter and caramel, white chocolate and rose, and mint options! Heaven does exist on Earth.
If you want to make a night of it at Goldfinch, there’s also their Dinner and Skate package. For just $55 per person, you get your choice of two-courses PLUS 40 minutes of ice skating! So whether you’re a skating star or you’ve yet to find the courage to lace up your ice skates, this package is the perfect excuse to hop onto the ice with your dinner partner for a magical night!
Like we said, it may not be a snowy Christmas in Queensland, but there will definitely be a winter wonderland at King George Square this June—gather your friends, partner, family and take everyone out for a night to remember!
