Sandton City is one of South Africa’s glitziest, most popular shopping malls and entertainment centres. It represents a massive concentration of wealth and is all about labels, boutiques, and pure, 24-carat retail therapy. As such, Sandton City is the perfect home of the Arque Champagne Crescent, which has dubbed itself "the most exclusive address for champagne and fine dining at Sandton's Diamond Walk".
The Arque Champagne Crescent has partnered with the opulent French champagne house, Perrier-Jouët, to offer sparkling connoisseurs the ultimate in bubbly deliciousness and a memorable experience. Perrier-Jouët has a history that dates back to 1811 and is the perfect complement to the fine dining that is par for the course for the Arque experience. The executive chef has implemented a menu that is characterised by crisp, fresh flavours and a modern, imaginative approach to food preparation. The dishes have been infused with champagne flavours along the way to make them even more magnificent on the palate.
Arque also has an impressive collection of some of the best champagnes from around the world, each of which has been selected based on a strict set of criteria. However, the Perrier-Jouët is exclusive to the Arque Champagne Crescent, and is offered by the glass.
The muted pastel pinks and nudes are exquisitely off-set by low-hanging light fittings and an oval wooden bar in the centre. The Arque Champagne Crescent is open every day from 09h00 (Monday to Sunday) for breakfast, and closes late, when patrons have had their fun and enjoyed the classy vibe to the max.
A number of gifts and keepsakes can be bought here.
Being situated in Sandton City means that this trendy hotspot is ideal after a day spent shopping and sight-seeing. In addition, it is less than 40 minutes’ drive from the OR Tambo International Airport.
