Gin in gaol and rum on a boat. Appropriately thematic pop-up bars are coming!

Gaol pop up

So it turns out the good folks at the National Trust like to party. Following on from a few shindigs they threw at the Old Melbourne Gaol last year they’re holding three pop-ups in the coming months.

The first two are back at the gaol – in September it’s a night revolving around vodka cocktails, live music and running around defunct prison. In October, its the same deal, only this time, the bar will be slinging gin. Which seems appropriate.

And who wants to drink rum on the Polly Woodside (without breaking and entering – which we’ve all considered)?

Tickets get you two drinks on entry and access-all-areas rights to the historical venue of your choice. There’s also a cash bar, and beer and wine for anyone not into hard liquor. And food, for anyone not into getting loose – and then possibly lost in prison.

Fun ahoy!
