A perfectly paired dinner experience with unmatched sunset views. Fable Melbourne, Piper-Heidsieck and Hendrick’s come together to present an exclusive five-course event in an enchanted garden.
The Piper-Heidsieck and Hendrick’s five course summer dinner sees Fable’s Michelin-starred executive chef, Alex Xinis celebrate the flavours of Piper-Heidsieck champagne and Hendrick’s Gin, via a one-off five course menu. Fable Melbourne’s legendary bar team will craft classic cocktails highlighting the bespoke flavours of the champagne and gin, paired with the five course dinner.
Owner and designer Gehan Rajapakse (Sofitel, Hyde, Rah Bar, Club 23) has secured Fable’s rightful place as a Melbourne institution. The venue boasts one of the city’s best views on the 13th floor, with a fully retractable roof and world class heating and cooling to cater for all-season dining.
Fable’s Rooftop Brunch with DJs and live entertainment continue throughout summer on Saturdays from 1pm-3pm. The cocktail-style Rooftop Brunch offers bottomless Grey Goose Essences spritzes and a wide range of chef made canapés from Beetroot with stracciatella to Cured Yellowtail Kingfish, and was recently named #1 Rooftop Brunch in Melbourne by Herald Sun Delicious. Bookings are open via fablemelbourne.com.au.
