On the menu this year is a new champagne and oyster bar serving Piper-Heidsieck bubbly and fresh oysters from QVM’s very own George the Fishmonger, as well as Wonderbao, 400 Gradi and Scott Pickett’s Estelle.The Vintage Garage continues with their impressive rotating selection of pre-loved threads and accessories to complement your wardrobe.
