Aria, Krug and Music – The Perfect Harmony

This September, Aria and Krug are collaborating on a sensory experience that looks to explore the perfect balance between sight, sound, smell, touch and taste.


The luxury partnership comes off the back of an increasing amount of research recognising the changes hearing can make to taste, prompting them to create a brand new, limited-edition tasting experience.


Available throughout the entire month of September, diners will receive a glass of Krug Champagne, two custom canapés and be loaned a pair of Bang & Olufsen headphones that play a specially curated Aria × Krug playlist. While they eat and sip, guests will be taken through a journey of taste and sound as rousing symphonic and orchestral music plays, said to alter the way each mouthful tastes. The unique experience is designed to last for approximately five minutes.

Served alongside the glass of Krug Champagne will be two canapés of lamb with smoked egg & saltbush and potato with smoked roe & caviar. Artfully designed by Aria’s Executive Chef, Joel Bickford, these delicious starters are a careful balance of salty and savoury, crunchy and soft, mild and strong, created to test out the effect of the music on the food and enhance the taste and effervescence of the accompanying Champagne.

This custom experience can be added to any à la carte dining experience for $100 per person from 1–30 September.
