House of the Heart Cabaret

Chinese Museum, Cohen St, Melbourne
Thursday 9th Feb – Sunday 12th Feb

Head diva Moira Finucane, a dragon herself, immerses her beloved audience in an intimate cabaret of stunning singers, dancers and storytellers – an exploration of home, heart, song, language and belonging. Ancient and new, wild and gentle. In the heart of Chinatown, in partnership with the legendary Chinese Museum surrounded by three generations of processional dragons.

Be sure to sample our signature MGC cocktail – The House of the Heart – while you watch!


Juniperlooza 2023 – Gin Festival

The Boatbuilders Yard, South Wharf
Saturday 11th Feb 12-8pm, Sunday 12th Feb 12-6pm

Juniperlooza is and always will be a celebration of gin.

A party for the people who love gin and an opportunity to rub shoulders with those who make gin. It’s the one with the boat, it’s the one with cocktails and DJs, it’s the fun one!

Melbourne Gin Company is joining 20+ producers to bring the party this year, and it’s looking like a hot couple of days! Be sure to stop by our MGC stand to say hello, grab yourself a perfect G&T, a Bramble or a Negroni Spider and sip away your weekend.


Victoria’s Pride Street Party

Gertrude St and Smith St precinct, Fitzroy.
Sunday 12th Feb, 11am-9pm

This free street party is the highlight and culmination of the Victoria’s Pride season, and a fantastic day out for everyone!

Held on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri people, from 11.00am to 9.00pm, it includes multiple stages with free, live entertainment including music, comedy, guest speakers, circus, drag and art installations.

We’re partnering with our friends at Rosella Bar to serve the thirsty masses a collection of delicious MGC cocktails – including our signature Negroni Spider, Gin spritzes and G&Ts from 12pm.

Tickets? No, it’s free!

MGC Martini Tuesday

Yarra Falls, 381 Flinders Lane, Melbourne.
Tuesday 14th Feb,

Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day or not – we’ll be popping up at Yarra Falls bar in the CBD as part of their 1st birthday celebrations, and you should join us!

Our Brand Ambassador Kate Hoskin will be behind the bar serving a sumptuous selection of martinis from classic to contemporary. Our recommendation is the Red Snapper Martini – MGC Gin infused with chilli, rosemary and peppercorn; stirred down to icy cold and served with roasted tomatoes – a tribute to the gin-soaked cousin of the Bloody Mary.

Entry – Free. Drinks $12 – $24.

Libbi Gorr’s Bold Conversations

Malthouse Outdoor Stage, Southbank
14th Feb – 28th March

Libbi Gorr is known for her Bold Conversations. Her eclectic guests. Her creative style and brave thinking. Her fearlessness in reaching for that laugh as a balm for a painful truth.

Loved by audiences whether it be from her time on ABC Radio or her iconic TV jaunts, straight talk on provocative entertaining topics with surprising guests is what Libbi Gorr does best, and what she returns to in this live and authentic exclusive for Malthouse Outdoor Stage.

Every fortnight over the course of eight weeks, Libbi with her special surprise guests will present a ‘one – night only’ live conversation hour, each with a topical social bent, laced with laughs and Lib’s inimitable irreverent flair.

Be prepared to get involved. The talk doesn’t stop on the stage in these exclusive Tuesday sunset soirees!

Look out for a signature MGC cocktail at the Malthouse Outdoor Bar, which will change each week along with the stories being told.


Gaytimes Festival

Gilwell Park, Gembrook
