Salon at Vine Double Bay

Grey Goose Vodka and Vine in Double Bay have partnered to bring Salon at Vine, a French-inspired pop-up bar pairing Grey Goose vodka cocktails with canapés.

Executive Chef Drew Bolton has created a contemporary French-inspired canapé menu  paired with five Grey Goose cocktails, inspired by his recent sabbatical at Paul Bocuse & Epicure in France.

The canapé and cocktail pairings are priced at $25 per pairing.
