Looking for another idea for date night? There are stacks of things to do in Melbourne, but coming up with something novel isn't always easy. Good news: Capitano, the cosy Carlton bar from the folks behind Bar Liberty, has come to your rescue with a brand new cocktail and pizza deal to kick off your next romantic night out.
The cocktail is Capitano's take on the classic whisky highball. Forget your run-of-the-mill whisky and soda. Instead, innovative bartender and all-round hospo legend Darren Leaney has teamed up with Johnnie Walker, to take the well-loved drink to a new level.
You'll be sipping on a highball, but not as you know it. It'll be made with leatherwood honey, barley tea, saline, soda and Johnnie Walker Black Label Blended Scotch Whisky. Named the 'Leatherwood Highball' ($18), this refreshing tasting drink will join the Capitano menu on Tuesday, September 17. Better yet, the restaurant's making your next night out an affordable one, too. From 5.30–6.30pm every day, you can grab a pizza (classic cheese or tomato) and a Leatherwood Highball for $30.
So, you and your partner in crime can settle in for a night of great food and booze at this fun art deco spot on Rathdowne Street — without blowing the bank.
