Melbourne's legendary hospitality scene is once again proving it can really hustle for a cause, as a lineup of standout local bars and famed chefs come together to do what they do best — but, this time, they'll be raising money for bushfire relief.

Hosted by hospitality group Made In The Shade at its acclaimed cocktail bar The Everleigh, the Bar Bushfire Shake-Up will deliver the ultimate bartender showdown on Monday, January 13.

Alongside the group's other bars Heartbreaker and Bar Margaux, 13 well-known venues including Eau de Vie, Capitano, Black Pearl, Byrdi and Above Board will jump behind the Fitzroy bar, going head-to-head, two at a time as they each shake up a signature cocktail for $15 a pop.

Backing up the boozy treats, you'll find the Connie's Pizza food truck stationed out front, dishing up hefty slices for $10 each. Renowned chefs including Attica's Ben Shewry, Pete Gunn (Ides) and Andrew McConnell (Cutler & Co, Cumulus Inc) will each design their own signature pizza for the occasion.

The night's also set to feature a live auction, offering up an assortment of covetable experiences with funds going to support Aussie bushfire victims. You could nab yourself a five-course feed for two at Byrdi (valued at $250), or even a secret staff party at Fancy Free, valued at $3000.

Entry to The Everleigh on the night is $20, with all proceeds from cover charge and drinks going to the Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery. Just remember the bar will be taking card payments only.
