Petanque Social at Crown Melbourne

Wed 26th October, 2022 – Sun 23rd April, 2023
Petanque Social
Crown Riverwalk, Southbank
Laze on a day bed in the sun, Margarita in hand, or sip a glass of wine over snack plates and 400 Gradi pizza along the Yarra.

First came Arbory Afloat, now Petanque Social is the Yarra River’s latest summery pop-up for outdoor drinks and snacks.

The terracotta-hued bar is on the other side of the river from Arbory (closer to another floating bar, Yarra Botanica), as part of Crown Melbourne’s Riverwalk restaurant precinct.

There’s a snacky menu of shared plates, including sour bread with hummus, porcini mushroom arancini, beef brioche sliders and crispy chicken karaage. You can also order pizzas from 400 Gradi, including a classic margherita, hot salami, prosciutto and mushroom.

And there’s a full-service bar serving vino, beers, spritzes and summer cocktails (including Margaritas, Mojitos and Aperol spritzes, of course).

This year, Petanque Social is focused on sustainability. Reclaimed materials and eco-friendly paints have been used to build the pop-up, and solar power is used to keep the tap beers cold. There’s also rainwater collection and an on-site worm farm for composting.

Petanque Social is open now and runs until April 23, 2023.

Thu 4pm–11pm
