The NGA Sculpture Bar returns

by The Editor


It’s been a tough year for the National Gallery of Australia in regard to their hospitality services.  While people have flocked to Canberra to visit blockbuster exhibitions such as Masterpieces from Paris and the current Toulouse-Lautrec – Paris and the Moulin Rouge, the collapse of (deleted)’s catering and hospitality empire has been nothing short of spectacular, leading to a fairly public tiff regarding who did what to whom as far as the contract for the National Gallery is concerned.

With a firm eye on the future, and what looks like plenty of hot summer nights ahead of us, the Sculpture Bar is due to re-open, with plenty of delicious bubbly (and other distractions) to help ring in the weekend.

It all kicks off this Friday 19 January  from 5pm (perhaps a little late for Public Servants embracing a slow January!) and will run every week until the end of March.  As per last year, the promise is for DJs sending out soulful tunes to get you in the swing of things, as well as bar snacks to put something more solid in your belly.  So, if kicking up your heels with champagne in front of a bunch of brass heads sticking out of a nearby pond is your thing, get on down to the National Gallery of Australia’s Sculpture Garden and enjoy!
