Sunday Spritz

Wind down for the weekend at Bang Bang's new summer Sunday series. They will be mixing up five different summery prosecco spritzers from just $14, plus whipping up a sweet snack menu with bites starting at just $4. Start with a classic Aperol spritz, then try a Mimosa inspired number that comes with Cointreau, fresh orange and prosecco. The Sloe Down takes fresh mint, cucumber, prosecco and Plymoth Sloe gin, while the Shrub Lyf takes a sweet strawberry shrub and tops it with prosecco. Pair your spritz with a bao packed with charred lamb, pickled ginger and soy; or avocado, smoked trout and shallots. You can also order a sweet hand-held cone filled with chicken ribs and chips, or crisp pumpkin, mint, tamarind and lettuce. Bang Bang's full and funky South East Asian menu will also be available, so there will also be red curry rice balls, hiramasa kingfish sashimi, silken tofu and duck liver pâté.  Grab a crew and head down to Bang Bang to see out your weekend in style.

From cheap street eats to Michelin-star fine dining, there’s no better way to experience Thai culture than through its diverse food scene. Whether you’re hopping off a tuk tuk to scarf boat noodles ladled by a fourth-generation street vendor, stepping out of an elevator to sip Mai Tais 61 floors up in the sky, or jumping off a boat to cook your own Thai feast by the river, these unforgettable dining experiences won’t only reveal to you Thailand’s spicy, sour, sweet and salty flavours but also its language, geography and people.
