Tiny gin distillery and cocktail bar Little Lon Distilling Co – in a small, heritage-listed brick cottage in the CBD – is turning one. And it’s throwing a party on Saturday August 31.
The bar only has 20 seats, but it’s extending the courtyard to accommodate 200 people for this (almost) spring soiree. Expect white picket fences, lush greenery, a swinging jazz quartet, surprise throwback entertainment, and – of course – plenty of gin.
Sip on Little Lon and Fever-Tree G&Ts as well as a few cocktails, including the Little Collins (their take on a Tom Collins) and Springside (their take on a Southside). On the off chance gin’s not your tipple, go for free-flowing beers from Dandenong’s Brick Lane Brewing.
Fitzroy and CBD diner Rice Paper Scissors will be doing Southeast Asian street food, but there’ll also be a spread of cheese and charcuterie.
From 3pm to 11pm.
