Come Sail Away in an Urban Oasis with Cloudy Bay at Prego
Cloudy Bay has given Aucklanders even more reason to revel in the warmer season with the launch of its Cloudy Bay Sail Away pop-up dining experience at the iconic Prego restaurant.
Prego is now showcasing a new, beautiful outdoor space that runs the length of the property where guests can enjoy unique food and Cloudy Bay wine pairings under the warm Spring sun. What used to be an overlooked alleyway, is now a new, Cloudy Bay outdoor dining area that provides a welcoming escape from the outside world.
Prego and Cloudy Bay have worked closely with Landscape Architect Jared Lockhart, to help bring the Cloudy Bay Sail Away space to life. Using natural timbers, luscious greenery, low hanging ambient lighting as well as utilising the existing brick-cobbled path, Jared has created a charming yet refined wine garden in the heart of Ponsonby. “It was important to me that the overall design incorporated both Cloudy Bay and Prego influences, so I was careful to work with the existing infrastructure when bringing this space to life,” says Jared Lockhart.
“Cloudy Bay embraces natural elegance and refinement, so everything from the wood and plant life to the furniture and lighting needed to reflect this. I wanted to elevate the natural surroundings to create a unique inner-city dining environment where guests can take a break from their busy lives.”
