Jojo at The St Regis Bangkok recently launched a new promotional event pairing the Italian aperitif Aperol and Italian tapas at the outdoor Aperol Lounge nightly from 6-8pm throughout the summer. Italian Tapas are priced at B50 per plate, while Aperol Spritz is B125 per glass. An evening package for B495 includes a free flow of Aperol Spritz, Prosecco, beer, selected cocktails and unlimited tapas. As soon as you finish one platter, the wait staff brings you another.
Jojo has long been known as home to one of the best selections of Italian wine in Bangkok, along with an excellent representation of Italian cheeses. For the Aperol evenings, Jojo introduces the Aperol Spritz, a signature blend of Aperol, Prosecco, soda and an orange section, a super-refreshing beverage in the hot season. The drink provides the ideal accompaniment to Chef Carlo Valenziano’s delicious new tapas menu.
One standout food item is the grilled artichoke hearts, which are brushed with olive oil and loaded with smoky flavours. The lightly battered calamari, fried and served on a bed of rocket with a tasty aioli dip, is another winner, while olive lovers will surely appreciate the big bowls full of top-quality olives.
“The timing couldn’t be better as the good weather and later sunsets make for perfect outdoor lounging, especially after a busy day at work,” says Daniela Santobuono, Jojo’s restaurant manager.
“We feel privileged that Aperol has chosen to collaborate with us in promoting their exciting brand in Bangkok. It doesn’t get more Italian than refreshing drinks, good food and great company.”
The upscale lounge, located in the back verandah area of Jojo, features a stylish décor outfitted with comfortable sofas and low cocktail tables, along with a handful of standing tables, all interspersed with carefully trimmed greenery. A number of tent canopies also provide overhead cover.
