The Common Man, on Melbourne's South Wharf, has opened a pop-up Fire Garden aimed at keeping patrons toasty warm during winter.
To be officially launched on June 10, the Fire Garden contains several open fire pits aimed to keep patrons warm and cosy down on the Promenade.
The pop-up will also include a range of drink specials, custom food menu and entertainment.
The Fire Garden is built on The Common Lawn, a large exterior lawned area on the South Wharf Promenade. A pair of shipping containers, classic Airstream bar, a range of campfire seats, fire pits, heaters and more create the setting; while blankets are on offer to add that extra touch of relaxation for the brisk (read bloody cold) Melbourne winters.
Craft beer brewers James Squire have created a custom beer menu (with rotisserie and smoked meats) for the pop-up, coupled with five of their award winning beers available on tap and as tasting paddles.
Redbank have a wide selection of their wines on special just for the event, while Aberlour and Glenlivet are providing extra warmth with whisky flights on offer as well as Boilermaker cocktails.
The Fire Garden will also play host to a rotating group of musicians performing live music.
The launch party is being held on Queens Birthday eve from 4.30pm. All attendees will be treated to beer and food tastings, live music and door prizes.
“We are really excited to be offering a unique experience here at the wharf, a place where guests can enjoy the winter days and evenings looking at the city and stars indulging in some heartwarming food, without having to be tucked away inside somewhere,” said GM Sam Shaw.
