Enjoy a summer holiday in St Kilda with pizzas, White Claw seltzer, cocktails and good tunes.
New kid on the block Pontoon Park has popped up on the St Kilda foreshore just in time for a balmy summer. The team at Stokehouse Precinct have worked with the City of Port Phillip to get exclusive access to the adjacent Catani Archway garden area where Pontoon Park will be set up for the entirety of summer, offering a casual walk-in vibe with icy cold hard seltzers, beers and cocktails paired with wood-fired pizzas fresh from the Pontoon pizza oven.
Sponsored by White Claw, Pontoon Park is set up with picnic tables and umbrellas for a casual and laidback vibe, with surprise live music pop-ups planned for the summer. Walk-ins are welcome all day long and ordering is made seamless and COVID-safe through QR codes.
Enjoy a cocktail jug with friends, like a lychee lemonade complete with Soho, Malibu and lemon or a classic Frankie’s Margarita with tequila, lime and agave. Or, try the much-anticipated US hard seltzer brand White Claw in mango, natural lime or ruby grapefruit. There’s also a range of beers on offer, including Furphy lager and Little Creatures Dog Days ale, as well as jugs of sparkling, red and white wine.
The Park has kept it simple and delicious with the food offering, slinging five different pizzas on disposable sustainable packaging, including the Mr Anderson with pepper salami, roast flat mushrooms and tomato; a vegan Green Goddess pizza with roast broccoli, chilli, kale and an olive pesto base; and a Surf & Turf with grilled garlic prawn, prosciutto and a classic tomato base. For those still feeling peckish, there’s also crinkle-cut chips with tomato sauce to snack on.
Pontoon Park is now open from 4pm–11pm Thursday–Friday, weekends from midday–11pm, and extended days and hours are expected in early December. Bring a friend or five and come and experience Pontoon’s cooler younger cousin this summer.
