Cocktail on the rocks? Or on the road?
Looking to shake (or stir) up your drinking habits? Some of our favourite Melbourne bars are delivering their signature cocktails across town to ensure we get our fill of fancy liquor creations. Your lounge might not be as lush as The Everleigh, lighting not as romantic as Atticus Finch, or atmosphere not as cool as Heartbreaker, but that doesn’t mean you can’t drink like you’re there.
Whip out some records and pop up a photo of your favourite curly-haired bartender, Lulie is delivering you freshly poured pints and bottled cocktails in their Van with a Can. One week in, and they’ve already sold out their Friday and Saturday drink drops, but don’t lose faith, they’ll be announcing info about the next one soon.

You might not expect Northcote’s home of knock-offs to be slinging cocktails about, but that’s exactly what they’re doing.

Enjoy in Low Key style by accompanying your cocktail with a pizza from Primo.
