Bubbly lovers from all across town eagerly greeted the Veuve Clicquot Airstream as the stylish luxury pop-up champagne bar made its first Texas tour stop in Houston Tuesday. The asphalt parking spaces closest to Brasserie 19 were decked out with artificial grass turf, comfy vintage benches, gorgeous floral arrangements and colorful "Veuve yellow" accents everywhere, transforming the area into the perfect cork-popping oasis.
Veuve Clicquot regional manager Anna Kimball welcomed guests and encouraged them to fully enjoy the night’s festivities.
The stunning interior of the 2012 Eddie Bauer edition Airstream, with two gorgeously appointed separate sitting areas, proved to be the perfect retreat to relax and sip a flute of Veuve. To complement the perfectly chilled glasses of Yellow Label and Rosé, the restaurant served up freshly shucked oysters (a quintessential pairing), steak tartare, salmon rillette on cucumber slices, and other delectable bites that kept guests happily sated.
If your champagne cravings are bubbling up to the surface but you missed your chance to hit the Airstream in Houston, you're in luck: the lavish champagne sipping-mobile will continue its Texas travels making a stop in Dallas at Hotel Zaza on April 21; at the Austin Food and Wine Festival April 26-28; and finally rounding out its Lone Star state travels in San Antonio April 30.
