To really bolster those Fri-yay feels we’ve got some fresh news coming fresh out the interwebs this arvo.
This Saturday and Sunday, make pilgrimage to either Mermaid Lounge at Lefty’s or Savile Row in the Valley (or both, because you’re a massive baller and have the energy to live it up back-to-back) and you’ll find yourself in tiki town.
Why? Because two Black Pearl alumni, a.k.a actual legends, from Melbourne are opening a new venue down south later in the year (it’s called Fancy Free and you need to check it out next time you’re in town), but are so pumped to get amongst the punters that they’ve flown up here just to put on a couple of epic parties. They sound like our sort of guys.
So, what’s on the agenda? Kicking off the weekend vibes is a rip-snorter of a Life Aquatic party at Mermaid Lounge. The under-the-sea theme will be running hot, with luminous drinks and a Campari and Havana Club rum menu, bulk pineapples and a French island disco. Watch out for the sea creatures and jaguar sharks is all we can say…
Sunday sees Savile Row turn things up with a Scottish Pool Party. No, we have no idea what this entails either, but we do know this; there’ll be coconut sunscreen fizzes and whisky tiki drinks, inflatable pool toys and bagpipes (because theme) and, to top things off they’ve even managed to get Brisbane legend, Marty Lange to sling some drinks behind the bar.
If you ever wondered WTF a Scottish pool party or aquatic night at your local actually looks like (you’ve got to admit, it’s pretty intriguing, right?) you might as well do it when some of the best bartenders in the country are slinging the drinks.
Have a tiki-tastic time, folks!
