We’re calling it: the Espresso Martini is the ideal drink to start your night with. The sweet, eye-opening cocktail is standard across many bar menus but their popularity means they can often cost a pretty penny. Not at Crown though, where a stack of bars are slinging $10 Espresso Martinis every day until the end of March. Just pop into one of the participating venues between 5pm and 8pm to kickstart your night on the cheap.
When: All day every day until March 31.
Where: The Pub, Jackpot Bar, Las Vegas Bar, Lumia Bar, Sports Bar, Atrium Bar and Merrywell Bar and Dining.
Crown is saying hello to the cooler weather with a pint glass of Heineken in hand and inviting you to do the same. The famous, easy drinking Dutch beer will set you back just $9.50 every day in March with seven separate venues offering the special across Crown.
When: 5-8pm Wednesday to Sunday.
Where: Merrywell Bar and Dining.
From Wednesday to Sunday the venue hosts Merry Hour – three magical hours where you can get Ketel One vodka for $6, fruity jugs of Pimms for $15 and glasses of red, white or sparkling house wine for $6.
When: 5-7pm Wednesday to Friday.
Where: San Antone.
After a long day at work there are two things that puts a smile on our faces: juicy barbecued meat and cheap drinks. San Antone offer a $10 Margarita, $6 house wine (red, white and sparkling) and schooners of Budweiser for $6. Add a tray of the restaurant’s tender smoked meats and sides and you’re laughing.
When: 5-7pm Wednesday to Sunday.
Where: Long Chim.
There aren’t many places where you can get a cocktail for cheap in Melbourne but at Long Chim you can get selected cocktails for $12 every Wednesday to Sunday. Cocktails not your thing? Long Chim’s happy hour also includes $10 selected wine and $8 beers making it super easy to kickstart your weekend (or take the edge off mid week).
When: 5-7pm daily.
Where: Merrywell Burger Bar.
It’s hard not to be happy when you’re enjoying a drink outside with a cheap beer in one hand and a massive burger in the other. Merrywell Burger Bar specialises in all things American dining – think burgers, onion rings, loaded fries and hot dogs. The restaurant also has a daily happy hour where you can get $6 wines and $9.50 Heineken pints to enjoy in the sun by the Riverwalk.
