Be still our caffeinated hearts, an Espresso Martini Festival is coming to Melbourne. 

After the success of last year’s debut event, the Mr Black Festival of the Espresso Martini is back. And it’s going to be boozier and bigger than ever. 

Over 20 varieties of espresso martinis will be offered at the festival, which runs from Friday November 3 to Sunday November 5 at the Meat Market in North Melbourne.  

Coffee lovers can choose to sip on drinks from four different bar areas, each of which will be serving up their own kind of caffeinated cocktail (including martinis topped with doughnuts). 

Toasta & Co and Fancy Hanks are among the spread of Melbourne faves serving up eats, while beers will be from the barrels of Holgate Brewhouse. 

You’ll also be able to participate in masterclasses teaching you to craft your favourite cocktail,  all while listing to live music. 

Tickets are on sale now.
