Brisbane's underground home of rum and jazz is at it again. When the Ekka public holiday hits on Wednesday, August 14, The Walrus Club is celebrating the occasion with dark spirits and smooth tunes all afternoon long. Yes, it's going to be a real Rum Royale at the Regatta's prohibition era-inspired basement bar.
On the boozy side of the equation, prepare to taste your way through 12 different rum samples, showcasing the best tipples from around the globe. There'll also be food to match, including a tiki-style smokehouse and a pop-up deli — which means plenty of cheese and charcuterie is on the menu. Attendees can also learn more about the beverage in question, and about making cocktails, thanks to a range of masterclasses. You'll receive your own tasting glass, too, which you can take home with you.
When it comes to music, a live jazz soundtrack will add to the atmosphere all afternoon long.
Rum Royale runs from 3–7pm, with tickets on sale now for $49.
