Yesterday, the Terrazza Martini was festively inaugurated at the station Guillemins in Liege. Felipe Massa welcomed some 600 guests and took the time for a photo session and a speech with the fans before returning by helicopter to the Francorchamps circuit… Today and tomorrow, the Terazza Martini is open to the public for free between 16 and 22 h.
Just like last year, at the occasion of the Belgian Grand Prix F1, Martini put up its legendary Terrazza Martini in the centre of Liege for a few days. This time the setting is the iconic station Guillemins by the Italian architect Calatrava. Summer beats, a spectacular F1-simulator, superb Italian antipasti and of course perfectly prepared Martini drinks are served for two days on the biggest terrace in Liege. With a total surface of not less than 800 square meter, the Terazza Martini definitely will be during two days the biggest terrace in Liege. Not less than three Martini Bars lavished on Friday 26th of august the thirsty at the Guillemins station… More thirsty people can come and enjoy the bars on Saturday 27 th and Sunday 28th of August.
The Martini Racing Bar houses a luxurious terrace, with a view on the Williams Martini racing car. In this part of the Terrazza, the refreshing ‘Martini e Tonic’ takes central stage.
In tune with the Caffè Torino in Ghent – Belgium’s first vermuteria – Caffè Torino iss also built up on the Terrazza Martini in Liege, where the Martini Riserva Special Drinks figures in the spotlight: classic vermouth based cocktails which are served with the accompanying antipasti. Last but not least there is also a Bottle Bar, where guests can order a bottle of spumante (Martini Brut or Rosé).
For a wide palette of authentic Italian snacks, Martini joined hands with not less than three different restaurants, of which two local top names (Caffè Internazionale and Trattoria da Pino) which bring each their signature aperitivo snack. The antipasti in the Caffè Torino are made by the Antwerp based Francesco & Julia. All amuses are a perfect match with the various Martini drinks.
The Terazza Martini is the pinnacle of the Martini PLAY WITH TIME campaign: just enjoy together with friends a nice moment on the terrace embraced by Italian flair and elegant nonchalance.
