Found in the CBD on the corner of Hay and King Streets, whatever you’re in the mood for, this west end foodie hub has got you covered with eight of the absolute best events to fill your calendar.

From gin high teas and Spanish fiestas to tomahawk masterclasses and sangria sessions, there’s plenty of delicious and boozy events to get excited about this summer. Read on and prepare to drool. 

Get Around This Gin High Tea 

The Loft Lounge And Bar are making our dreams come true by combining two of our favourite pastimes—gin and high tea. Mixologist, Stephen Dervin, has added a welcomed twist to your traditional high tea by infusing his gin cocktails with T2 tea. You’ll be treated to cocktails like I Said Gin, Not Gym (Hendricks, Fever-Tree Indian Tonic, T2 China Jasmine tea, peppercorns, cucumber) and Keep Your Gin Up (Gin Mare, Fever-Tree Mediterranean Tonic, T2 Lemongrass and Ginger Tea, olives, rosemary and navel orange). As if it couldn’t get any better (spoiler, it does), Chef de Cuisine, Nic Trezise has created a gin-inspired food menu with treats like gin and tonic cupcakes, strawberry gin mousse and lime and gin tart. Gin high tea will be happening every Saturday and Sunday for $65, so grab your tickets here and prepare for the perfect girls day out.

Spritz Your Sangria 

In what can only be described as a dream scenario, for a little extra coin, the good folks at Heno & Rey will add some extra sass to your sangria. For just $2 they’ll add Grey Goose to your white sangria or they’ll add Spanish cava, green grapes, white peach, and bitters for an extra $5. If you’re more inclined to order a red sangria, they’ll add Cognac for just $2 or they’ll throw in Spanish cava red grapes, blood orange and bitters for an extra $5. We’ll cheers to that.

When: All summer

Celebrate Melbourne Cup With A Spanish Twist

Melbourne Cup is sweeping its way back around and this year Heno & Rey are throwing one hell of a bash to celebrate. Sip your way through a two-hour drinks package and set menu featuring Spanish tapas like cured meats and cheeses, chorizo and patatas bravas, crispy line-caught squid and marinated chicken thigh with romesco sauce and flaked almonds. If you’re not yet full (for dessert, we’ll make room), finish with a mouth-watering torta chocolate sponge, chocolate and orange mousse. This is a fiesta you don’t want to miss, so grab your tickets before they’re gone. 

When: 11:30am til 1:30pm on Tuesday, 5th November

Sign Up For A Tomahawk Masterclass

If there’s one thing better than tucking into a juicy steak, it’s learning how to prepare a Stirling Ranges Tomahawk with Ascua’s award-winning chef Nic Trezise. The masterclass is served with a side of canapes, drink tastings and a take-home-tomahawk. With Christmas just around the corner and Valentine’s Day on the horizon, this masterclass is a delicious gift your loved ones will remember.
