A fire-eating, gin-tasting cabaret show is coming to Melbourne

It's gonna be one hell of a show.

Gin is having its moment right now and Radio Bar has taken the opportunity to celebrate the beloved, versatile drink by taking a regular gin-tasting event to the next level.

The Fitzroy bar, well known for its drum and bass Mondays, is putting on a gin-packed cabaret evening, hosted by Melbourne cabaret singer Sophie deLightful. It's also been revealed the cabaret night will welcome the fire-eating, gender-bending Archie Arsenic to the stage.

A ticket to Just the Tonic includes a cocktail at the door, four rounds of gin tasting, followed by one hell of a show. If you're looking for something to match your elderflower and juniper berries, a range of food specials are also available on the night. Radio Bar says this is the first and only gin-tasting cabaret night in Australia, so be the first to immerse yourself in some world-class burlesque performances over a well-crafted G&T.

Just the Tonic: A Gin Tasting Cabaret will be held at Radio Bar on Saturday February 23. Tickets via StickyTickets.
