Bar Bushfire Shake-Up
Time Out says
Hospo greats are teaming up for a cocktail and pizza-fuelled bushfire fundraiser
Hospitality group Made in the Shade is coordinating a fundraising event at its flagship bar the Everleigh on Monday, January 13. Four of the country’s top chefs including Ben Shewry, Andrew McConnell, Shane Delia and Peter Gunn will collaborate with 16 Melbourne bars for a one-night-only benefit, with all proceeds going to the Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery.
As well as the Everleigh and Made in the Shade’s other venues Bar Margaux and Heartbreaker, bars like Byrdi, Eau de Vie, Black Pearl, Above Board, Capitano, Bar Liberty, Whisky and Alement, the Elysian Whisky Bar, Bad Frankie, Union Electric, Fancy Free and the Lincoln will be taking part.
Connie’s Pizza (the slice joint inside Heartbreaker) will be opening a food truck right outside the Everleigh with Shewry, Gunn and McConnell designing their own slice for the evening. It’s $10 a slice, but these slices are massive – trust us.
Cocktails for the night will be $15 each and many of the venues will be donating dining and drinking experiences for a live auction which is taking place at 10pm.
Entry to the party will be $20 and payment at the bar will be card only.
