QT Newcastle is celebrating the art of spritzing this summer in collaboration with Aperol

Summer has arrived, and brought with it longer days, more sunshine, and cocktails made for enjoying in the warm weather.

Not many cocktails are more fitting for summer than a spritz – bubbly and refreshing, they’re so easy to sip while you kick back on a sunny afternoon.  

This summer, indulge in the art of spritzing at Rooftop at QT, as QT Newcastle presents Summer of Spritz, in collaboration with Aperol. The designer hotel has been transformed into a haven for spritz enthusiasts, with Newcastle’s premier rooftop offering an ideal location for summer sessions.

Available daily, the spritz menu features classics like Aperol Spritz, plus bespoke creations like Campari Spritz, SKYY Spritz, and a non-alcoholic Crodino Spritz.

Feeling peckish? Bar bites have been crafted by QT Executive Chef Shayne Mansfield and include confit duck hotdog with a brioche bun, Campari jam, pickles, and comte cheese; mother fungus mushroom tart with parmesan custard, porcini soil, and shiitake marmalade; and Jana restaurant’s fish wing with chilli tamarind and spiced peanuts.

Rooftop at QT will continue to transcend the ordinary with the appointment of Venue Manager, Dave Watkins. A Novocastrian with over a decade of experience including managing the speakeasy cocktail bar Coal & Cedar, Watkins is set to add a new dimension to the Rooftop at QT experience.

“The QT brand has an incredible reputation, not only in Newcastle but in the national bar industry. I’m excited to bring my expertise to the Rooftop at QT, infusing the personal touch and service of an intimate bar into the rooftop’s vibrant atmosphere,” Dave said.

Teamed with views of Newcastle’s harbour as the backdrop, and on Sundays a rotation of Newcastle’s best DJs soundtracking the summer sunset, guests have all the ingredients for a memorable spritz session.
