Drink, What's On

Espresso Martini Festival

Following the sold-out success of last year’s Mr Black Festival of the Espresso Martini, they are bringing it back bigger and better to Melbourne’s Meat Market this November 03-05.

This year will see the Meat Market transformed into six-bar cocktail village where you can enjoy caffeinated creations from some of Melbourne’s best specialty coffee roasters, bars and coffee shopsStart with the MR BLACK COFFEE SHOP – White Russian slushie, anyone? Or perhaps Mr Black’s OG Espresso Martini topped with a donut is more your jam. They’ll have their usual MAIN BAR with some less-than-usual Espresso Martini variations including the Coffee Nut Espresso Martini if you’re feeling a little fruity. Windsor’s favourite JUNGLE BOY are taking over the TIKI BAR in the Garden and if you search hard enough, you might find the SPEAKEASY BAR created by Melbourne institution the Everleigh Bottling Co.

If (strangely) coffee isn’t quite your thing, they have a GIN & TONIC BAR presented by Tanqueray and ICY COLD BEERS from Holgate Brewing.

Enjoy some delicious food from FANCY HANKS, THAT ARANCINI GUY, TOASTA & CO, ZEUS STREET GREEK and BUTTER MAFIA and you’ve got a tasty AF celebration of coffee and the culture it supports: food, music, liquor and creativity. Oh, and did we mention there will be donuts?

Get your tickets now and look forward to November! The festival is ready to surprise you with some live performances from young Australian musicians PLUS the chance to get involved in their espresso martini cocktail classes + cold brew workshops!
