Italians are the masters of summer day drinking. But if you don’t have a chance to make it to the Mediterranean country this season, you need not worry. A London Aperol pop-up is bringing Italy to the north when the brand hosts its largest U.K. event ever this summer called The Aperol Big Spritz Social.
Go ahead and chalk in every Aperol Spritz-loving American as jealous. The pop-up party will run from May 31st to June 9th at the Shoreditch Electric Light Station. Everything will be decked out in Aperol orange, including plenty of Italian cliches like a Vespa carousel. DJs will bump music while people mingle with Spritzes in hand among the mid-century modern decor. There will even be an orange canal down which guests can row. The tickets range from £8.50 to £10, depending on how many you buy at once (the more you buy, the more you save). Each ticket will get you two Aperol Spritzes and traditional Italian aperitivo.
Booking a trip to London just for the Spritz party might be a touch extra, but that doesn’t mean you should write it off entirely. If there’s anything we’ve learned from the internet, it’s that if enough people demand it, it will come. And demanding a giant Aperol party is way better than demanding Mayochup. While we all wait for that to happen, have a Spritz or two—it’s impossible to have FOMO when sipping on one
