Russell Place

New Year's in Russell Place

Three titans of the Melbourne drinks scene join forces for one night only to rock your 2021 New Year. Gin Palace, that shining monument to fine times, and its much-loved sister venue, Bar Ampere, get together with new kid on the block Bijou Bottle Store to host a private street party along Russell Place. It’ll feature drink and food stalls set along the street, including a charcoal grill station, a “fried fun station” and a gelato bar from Bar Ampere. You’ve got all the fun and conviviality of a street fair with the comfort and ease of allocated seating and plenty of table space, not to mention a high degree of confidence in quality drinking, with Bijou on wine service, and of course the Gin Palace taking care of the cocktails.
