It’s still a few months away, but in early November the Flemington leg of the Spring Racing Carnival gears up again. This year, Broadsheet is getting involved and we’re pretty excited about it.

Broadsheet and Schweppes are working together to build Bar Schweppes by Broadsheet in the Birdcage Enclosure alongside the track at Flemington, which will be open all four days during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

In something of a tribute to our city’s bar culture, we are working to develop the ultimate Melbourne bar. Building on the success of the Schweppes Broadsheet Bar, which we opened for 20 days as part of the 2012 Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, our concept for Bar Schweppes will feature the best of Melbourne’s food and drink culture, as we collaborate with some of Melbourne’s favourite restaurants and leading cocktail bars.

Though we can’t reveal who just yet, we’ve invited along a handful of the city’s most innovative venues, which combine great interiors, a lively atmosphere and are making world class cocktails. Together, they represent a melange of styles and approaches that define the upper echelon of nightlife and sophisticated drinking in the city.

We are thrilled to be working on this project with our partners Schweppes, who have long supported top quality bar culture through their standout range of mixers.

We’re sure Bar Schweppes by Broadsheet will be the place to be out at the track this year.

Stay tuned for more details soon.
