Following the sold-out success of last year’s Mr Black Festival of the Espresso Martini, gods of boozy coffee, Mr Black, are bringing the event back, bigger and better to Melbourne’s Meat Market this November 03-05.
THE FESTIVAL. Coffee, cocktails and rollicking good times, obviously.
DRINK. 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 shops. Start 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. We’ll have our 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, we have a GIN & TONIC BAR presented by Tanqueray and ICY COLD BEERS from Holgate Brewing.
EAT. Add to this the delicious fare 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?
LEARN. Espresso Martini Cocktail Classes and Cold Brew Workshops will be running all weekend presented by Mr Black with Uber Bar Tools and Monin.
LISTEN. We’re curating a selection of young Australian musicians to perform live every session, beginning to end.
