From 1 May to 31 May, participating bars in each city have put together an exclusive menu for Australian Cocktail Month ticket holders. The tickets, which are valid in all four cities and for the entire month of May, are just $20.
In Melbourne, there are seventeen bars (out of the total 72) that will take part in the festival’s first edition. These include 1806, Baby Jane, Bar Margaux, Beneath Driver Lane, Black Pearl, Bomba and Heartbreaker as well as The Everleigh and Union Electric. To see the full list of bars participating as well as the cocktails that they have concocted for the month of May, click here.
To get access to the exclusive menu, which is different at each bar, all you need to do is get your hands on the $20 ticket and present it at any of the participating venues. Not only will you be able to choose from the special menu, but you will also get the discounted price too—$14 for cocktails and $10 mocktails.
A number of high-profile international and local brands have gotten behind the initiative as well, which means that our best bartenders have been given plenty more products to work with. Show them your support and get behind the hospitality industry this May by drinking some amazing cocktails. Sounds like something we can do.
Tickets to the first Australian Cocktail Month are on sale now.
