Down on Flinders Lane we’ve been working hard to pull together a bar, just in time for the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival. It’s an exciting time in Melbourne, festival season and all, and in a tribute to our city’s drinking and nightlife culture, we’ve assembled a team of collaborators to develop the ultimate Melbourne bar by Broadsheet, presented by Schweppes.

We’ve invited along our favourite Melbourne cocktail bars that, together, represent a melange of the styles and approaches that define the upper echelon of drinking in the city. Drawing on the likes of The Everleigh, Seamstress, Bar Americano, Der Raum, Eau de Vie Melbourne, Bar Ampere, Black Pearl and The Beaufort, we’ll run the full gamut of quality drinking, from the experimental through to time-honoured classics.

Every couple of days will see new operators take the reins at The Broadsheet Bar. Each with their very own styles and technique, mixers, stirs, pours and ice. Seamstress was first up on Thursday night, and the rest will unfold as the three weeks of MFWF continues. Blackhearts & Sparrows have curated a fantastic wine list and we've pulled together a great offering of local micro brews from around Victoria. The team from Bright Young Things is our proud catering partner and will be supplying cheese and charcuterie to accompany your drink.

Broadsheet Access members get special tables at busy restaurants, tickets to exclusive events and discounts on food, coffee, brand offers and more.
