Good news! Everybody except James Bond’s favourite type of martini is having its own dedicated festival right here in Melbourne, and it’s all being brought to you by Mr Black himself.
The Mr Black Espresso Martini Fest will takeover Meat Market and will take place from November 3 – 5. The event will have more than 20 different styles of Espresso Martini on offer, as well as being divided into 6 different bar areas that will all serve their own take on the drink.
If coffee isn’t your thing you’ll be happy to know that Tanqueray will be serving up some refreshing Gin & Tonics, and Holgate Brewhouse will be bringing those ice-cold beers.
With all this alcohol consumption you’re going to need to eat, and you can relax safe in the knowledge that Fancy Hank’s, Zeuss Street Greek, and Toasta & Co. will be delivering food straight into your belly.
There will also be masterclasses, and live music to cap off the event.
Tickets are split up into sessions depending on which day you attend, there’s a ticket + bottle option which will get you your very own bottle of Mr Black to pick up once you’re inside.
