There’s a lot to love about Londoners. From their thick accents to their understated yet chic style and, of course, the city’s rich history. Schweppes share our love affair and as such, have just opened ‘Bar Schweppes’ in Melbourne, a unique pop-up bar showcasing bespoke cocktails inspired by current London bar trends.
In true Melbourne fashion, Bar Schweppes is situated at a secret CBD location, revealed on your day of booking only if you register online. Cocktail-lovers are invited on a journey of discovery and adventure as you’ll be transported to the London bar scene, as part of Schwepps’ Lost in London series.
On offer will be two new Schweppes cocktails, the aptly named ‘Ello Guv’nor – a delicious concoction of Schweppes Lemonade with Citrus & Cucumber, the very British Pimm’s, mint, strawberries and cucumber, and The Picadilly Citrus a combo of Schweppes Orange Grapefruit & Bitters, Tanqueray Gin, lime and mint.
If you’re still feeling that Spring Racing fever, Bar Schweppes will also be serving up The Flemington Fling – Schweppes Agrum Blood Orange, Smirnoff Vodka, fresh lime juice and mint.
Plus, there’s plenty of classic London grub to line your stomachs: the Ploughman’s Platter, Chip Butty or House Fish Fingers with mushy peas and chips.
Don’t be a bludger about it either, Bar Schweppes is only open for a limited time, on Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays for three weeks, closing on Saturday 7 November.
