Australian alcohol brand, SAINTLY HARD SELTZER have just launched their much anticipated Sacred Vaults at Riverland Bar. Each of these Sacred vaults are designed to transport you into a different immersive experience.
Stepping into the first vault, guests are greeted with the SAINTLY forbidden tree, glowing with lights and adorned with SAINTLY cans and fruit. The next vault is totally immersed in a single colour, lit up by changing coloured lights. This vault is dark and mysterious, perfect for sitting and chatting with friends whilst enjoying the visual experience. The final vault, where the mirrored DJ booth is located, features visuals projected onto the ceiling. Here guests can sit and enjoy the music whilst being fully immersed in the video projections.
Located right in the heart of Melbourne City at Federation Square, the vaults at Riverland Bar were originally constructed for Melbourne City Council in 1890 following the completion of the iconic Princes Bridge in 1888. The vaults are said to have had a shady underbelly past and hosted underground parties in the 90s. Now, the Princes Walk Vaults are home to some of the city’s best bars and entertainment.
The SAINTLY Sacred vaults will be available for guests to enjoy every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11am until the end of February 2022.
