Bringing Aperitivo culture to Manchester this March is one of Milan’s popular drinking spots, Bar Camparino, with its first ever Northern residency. The bar will be hosted at one of the UK’s best cocktail bars, Schofield’s Bar, where the venue will be celebrating the illustrious history of Camparino and the vibrancy of contemporary Aperitivo culture.
Taking place on March 5, the residency offers the truly unique opportunity to enjoy an authentic CAMPARI Seltz, the signature drink of Camparino and original version of the Campari and soda. Served in the very same way as in Milan, it uses a recreation of Camparino’s famous 1915 soda machines, the only way to ensure a perfectly cooled, sparkling CAMPARI Seltz with its distinctive foamed head.
Established more than 100 years ago by Davide Campari, son of CAMPARI founder Gaspare, Camparino has ever since been home to the artists, intellectuals and celebrities of the day, cementing itself as a must-see mainstay of Milan. Visitors to the Camparino residency can expect exceptional cocktails mixed by Camparino’s Head Bartender Tommaso Cecca as well as timeless classics and contemporary creations brought to life by the skilled bartenders at Schofield’s Bar.
The residency arrives as us Mancs continue to fall in love with Aperitivo, embracing the timeless ritual of ending the day and starting the evening with a refreshing, appetite-whetting drink alongside light bites and good conversation.
Camparino Head Bartender, Tommaso Cecca, said: “We are delighted to be bringing Camparino to Manchester, through this exclusive collaboration with Daniel and Joe at SCHOFIELD’S BAR. With CAMPARI being at the heart of Milanese Aperitivo culture for more than 100 years, we are so excited to bring the essence of Camparino from our home in Milan to The North for the first time.”
Co-owner of Schofield’s Bar, Daniel Schofield, said: “As well as being synonymous with the timeless art of Aperitivo, Camparino is an innovative, legendary bar serving up an exceptional range of classic cocktails that we’re looking forward to showcasing on the night.”
Those who want to experience the Camparino residency at Schofield’s Bar in Manchester for one night only can visit on March 5, between 7pm and 11pm. No reservation is required, however guests can book here and walk-ins are welcome.
