Whether it's a first or fiftieth, there's one element of a birthday that never gets old: the party. And cake. Okay, that's two, but cake is delicious.

Saturday, September 1 marks a very special birthday indeed. Sophisticated all-day bar Cliveden Bar and Dining is celebrating one year since it opened as part of Pullman Melbourne on the Park's $6 million makeover. Sitting pretty opposite the MCG, The Cliveden was once the fine-diner The Cliveden Room, an A-list celeb haunt in the 80s and 90s.

It's now throwing a party to rival those it used to have back in its previous life. To celebrate, The Cliveden will host a gin-infused high tea with gin drinks and eats. Think gin-cured salmon, scones with negroni jam and gin-infused lemon tarts, in a very spirit-soaked twist on a traditional high tea. Gin cocktails will be on the go all day with a Violet Maiden (gin, violet liqueur, egg white), Bloody Aussie Negroni (Four Pillar's Bloody Shiraz gin, sweet vermouth, Okar) and Vintage Cliveden (Cliveden gin, Peychaud's Bitters) all part of the mix.

There'll be prizes up for grabs, and tickets are $60 (or $50 if you're an AccorPlus member). And, if you really want to go all out — which you probably do, because it's a birthday party and the first day of spring, too — you can add bottomless sparkling wine for just another $12. You certainly won't be leaving thirsty.
