Jump Afloat a winner!

Jump Afloat a winner! Image

Arbory Afloat has been recognised as Melbourne’s premier summer venue after receiving the City of Melbourne’s prestigious Melbourne Award for hospitality.

Having completely reimagined the way Melburnians embrace the Yarra River, Arbory Afloat has become the city’s summer go-to, hitting the water again now for its fourth seasonal incarnation, which for the first time includes a swimming pool!

A venue completely unlike any other, the floating bar and restaurant has this year embraced a new summer vibe, inspired by the colours and cool vibes of 1960s Miami with a menu showcasing the tastes of Latin America, the Caribbean, Cuba and Mexico. 

Each summer Arbory Afloat celebrates its Northbank location, inspiring guests with a heightened awareness of the Yarra, its beauty, environmental struggles, history and indigenous significance.

At the Melbourne Awards ceremony, held at Melbourne Town Hall on Saturday, December 16, the local business won the award ahead of fellow finalists Metropolis Events in Southbank, The Winter Village (Federation Square) and Dans Le Noir in Carlton.

Arbory Afloat marketing director Daniel Manly said, “it is really special to be recognised by the City of Melbourne for our contribution to the evolution of the Yarra River precinct as a dynamic and progressive world-class entertainment hub for all.”

For locals looking to stay close to home this New Year’s Eve, Arbory Afloat will once again be hosting a celebration to remember featuring a Miami Vice-themed New Year’s Eve party on the Yarra!

General release tickets to attend the best local party under the fireworks are now live and provide an all-inclusive package of champagne, premium house spirits, tap beer, a selection of rosé, white and red wine, roving canapes and food stations.

Chef Nick Bennett’s Latin-American-inspired menu will include wood-fired pizza, pulled pork tacos, ceviche, oysters, prawn cocktails, choripanes and coconut and caramelised white chocolate magnums!

Tickets to the pool deck will include the addition of three spritzers: Four Pillars Gin x Miami spritz, Ketel One Botanical Spritz and Aperol spritz!

The event will run from 7pm until 1am and tickets can be purchased online: arboryafloat.com.au/event/new-years-eve-2019/
