For all you lovers of a classic gin and tonic (AKA everyone in The Urban List office), we recommend a visit to the pop-up Gin Garden at Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art, which will open to thirsty Sydneysiders on Friday 4th December.

The guys from Sydney distillery, Archie Rose, and Newtown based craft beer brewers, Young Henrys, will be bringing the alcohol-based deliciousness, so pick a balmy evening to enjoy a creative gin cocktail (or beer!) from this elegant shady oasis overlooking the harbour. 

Coinciding with the launch of the MCA Gin Garden, the Grayson Perry: My Pretty Little Art Career exhibition will be open to visitors before or after your tipple. It’s the first major exhibition in the Southern hemisphere show casing the work of the acclaimed British artist (hence the collaboration with gin—a very British spirit). Perry’s contemporary style is appropriately kooky and will have you giggling even without the additional alcoholic buzz.

All food and drink come served with a side of British kitsch, so prepare those grumbling bellies. Accordingly, you needn’t be afraid to order your martini shaken, not stirred, in a terrible Bond-inspired impersonation. See you at the MCA Gin Garden this December, people!

The MCA Gin Garden will be open Thursdays to Sundays, from 4pm till late starting on Friday 4th December 2015.
