The top end of Collins Street is about to get a whole lot more glamorous, with London cocktail bar Kwãnt making its way to Melbourne for Negroni Week. From 5–8pm on Sunday, September 24, Kwãnt's bartender Giusy Castaldo will be taking over The Lounge at Society, mixing up three of the bar's signature cocktails that feature Campari as the star.

The cocktails on offer will be the Sunflower Negroni, the High Five and the Story. The first is a contemporary take on the classic negroni, as also made with gin, vermouth and Jerusalem artichoke, while the High Five blends chilli liqueur, watermelon and Ethiopian berry tincture. Finally, the Story goes with mezcal, chilli liqueur, berry cordial and tropical mix.

In addition to the cocktails, guests will also be able to enjoy bites from Society's kitchen. The event is walk-in only, so try to arrive early to avoid missing out.

If you're feeling really keen and work in hospitality, you can also sign up for the Campari Academy, which will take place at The Lounge at Society from 1–3pm on the same day. It's open to all bar professionals, and will see Giusy Castaldo sharing wisdom and showing how he goes about making the three cocktails that headline the night. He'll also expand upon Kwãnt's drinks philosophy.

This is a pretty rare opportunity to experience one of the world's best cocktail bars (and a regular inclusion on the World's 50 Best Bars list) in Melbourne. So, if you're a fan of negronis or simply good cocktails, you might wanna mark this one in your cal.
