A Drag Thru Cocktail Bar Is Here To Keep Your Spirits High This Lockdown

Who’s ready for some drinks?

Drive thrus have become a crucial way to help us get what we need during lockdown. But, have you ever experienced a drag thru? Pride of our Footscray is a delightful community bar in Melbourne’s west, and they’ve come up with a creative way to stay connected during lockdown. Every Friday and Saturday, they are doing Pride Outside, a takeaway bar serving up heaps of cocktails from drag queen Aurora Arsenic.

Go for a drag thru at Pride of our Footscray

Find this takeaway bar at the entrance of Pride of our Footscray. There, you’ll find a wide range of delicious wine, beer and cocktails.

Try classic cocktails like an Espresso Martini or Margarita, or opt for something fun like the Han Solo or Sea Breezy. The Han Solo will cost you $12, meanwhile, the rest of the cocktails are $18 each. Or, you can get all four cocktails for just $50.

These drinks will all be served by the glorious, 7 foot tall drag queen, Aurora Arsenic.


While you’re there, you can also stock up on some merch. Pick up a Pride hoodie or T-shirt and get a cocktail for free. If this bar is out of your 5km radius, you can also check out their shop online. While there, you can also purchase an annual Pride Membership, which will get you a discount on all future drinks, events and merch.

Put your mask on, grab some heels and say hello every Friday and Saturday during lockdown, from 4pm to 7pm.

Find Pride of our Footscray at 1/86-88 Hopkins St, Footscray VIC 3011. They’re very close to Footscray Station, on the opposite side of Footscray Market.
