MF Imbibo – welcome to our new members

A Social Event

Hosted by:
Simon Savage

August 30, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Winter is almost over and it is time to stop hibernating.

Inspired by Manhattan bars, this undercover rooftop bar, hidden at the top of Goldsborough Lane is an oasis in Bourke Street with its toasty heaters is the perfect place to share a beverage and raise a glass to our new members that have joined us.

Slate Restaurant and Bar is just off the bottom end of Little Bourke Street, between William and King Streets (closer to William). Southern Cross is the closest train station.

MF Imbibo has been created purely for the purpose of meeting and talking to other members and many great relationships have developed among our attendees – particularly for guests that are interested in joining the Melbourne Forum. There is no entry fee, you just need to pay for your purchases as you go, and although bookings are not essential, it’s nice to know how many people we are anticipating will attend.

If you can’t make this one keep Thursday 26th September and Thursday 31st October free in your diary for our next hidden treasure adventure.

Melbourne Forum – Feeding minds and stimulating valuable contributions to Melbourne life.
