MF Imbibo – welcome to our new members

Hosted by:
Melbourne Forum Executive Officer

May 30 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm


We are absolutely delighted to be celebrating our new members and invite you to join us in raising a glass in their honour.

Peaches is a pastel pink fantasy land – a soft and peaceful way to met our new members.

The cocktails are sorted into musical genres on the menu. You’ll find quirky, original drinks under “Funk” ( a Chartreuse, coriander and pineapple number named Bootsy) and harder boozy drinks under “Heavy Metal” (like the smoky Lucky Strike with whisky, vanilla syrup and chocolate bitters); while “90s Pop” brings with it fruit-driven frivolity (see the It’s Britney Bitch — sloe gin, basil and raspberries) and “Disco” leans towards the long and thirst-quenching, like the Let’s Get Physical, a mix of vermouth, peach tea and soda.

MF Imbibo has been created purely for the purpose of meeting and talking to other members and many great relationships have developed among our attendee’s – 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.

Keep the last Thursday of every month free in your diary to discover our next hidden treasure adventure.
