ITALY

Enjoy the sounds of DJ Dominqe Bird while sipping on negronis, and snacking on olives up at the newly renovated Sixes and Sevens garden.

Haven’t got enough of Italy yet?  Unsurprising… Which is why your good friends at Bucci are putting on a delicious Aperol Spritz Lounge for your tasting pleasure.  Not only will they supply the chilled out beats and lazy lounges, but you’ll have the most refreshing Aperol Spritz in hand, complemented with arancini and stuffed olives.  Bellisimo!
