Melbourne: SAINTLY Summer

Australia’s Leading seltzer brand, SAINTLY HARD SELTZER has just launched their much anticipated Sacred Vaults at Riverland Bar. This is Riverland Bar like you’ve never seen before, building on the existing Riverland greenery to create the SAINTLY Blessed Garden, a refreshing space to enjoy a Saintly or two during the summer.

Stepping from the light of the SAINTLY Blessed Garden’s leafy exterior, you’ll be immersed in the darker side with SAINTLY’s Sacred Vaults. As you step through the vault doors and into the bar, to your left will be a huge 1.8m forbidden tree adorned with SAINTLY fruits and SAINTLY HARD SELTZER cans. The more you look, the more you’ll see, enticing you to explore the rest of the SAINTLY Sacred Vaults.
Order a SAINTLY from the bar and step through the mirrored walkway next to the tree and you’ll enter the second vault, immersing you in monochrome coloured light. The room is entirely bathed in a single colour, and the lights slowly move through the spectrum of SAINTLY colours. Transporting you into a completely different and unforgettable atmosphere that changes your reality as the colours change. In this vault, you will find a place to chill with low-level cube seating and mirrored coffee tables. This vault is perfect to catch up with mates and soak up the changing lights and sound experience.

The last vault is another change of pace, with curated and abstract content projected on the ceiling, as the light changes, so will the experience of the film being projected. Here you will find artists performing from a mirrored DJ booth reflecting the light and projections. The perfect spot to sit and enjoy the music whilst being fully immersed in the video projections.
Riverland Bar is located right in the heart of Melbourne City at Federation Square, the hub of arts, culture and events. The Princes Walk Vaults at Riverland Bar have been transformed with stained glass window effect decals running the length of the vaults. These vaults 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.

SAINTLY’s Founder Kieron Barton commented: “After what has been a challenging two years for Victorians, we wanted to bring some fun to Melbourne and what a better way to celebrate the new year than with entertainment from DJ Joey Lightbulb and of course SAINTLY HARD SELTZER. The SAINTLY Sacred Vaults and Blessed Garden completely transports you into a mystical and intriguing world, free from the hustle and bustle of
Melbourne city.”

The SAINTLY Sacred Vaults will hold a temporary residence at Riverland Bar every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11 am until the 28th of February. Entry is free.
