Sips On Screen: 'The Blues Brothers'
Catch the cult-favourite 80s musical on the big screen while sipping on an Orange Whip.
If anyone knows how to do movie night in style, it's the crew at acclaimed cocktail bar The Everleigh. This month, the Fitzroy drinking destination is gearing up to host the next edition of its popular cocktail-matched cinema event, featuring cult musical comedy flick The Blues Brothers.
Taking over The Elk Room across two screenings (6.15pm and 8.45pm) on Thursday, October 24, this one sees The Everleigh teaming up with global spirits company Diageo to deliver a movie night for adults.
Curl up in a Chesterfield and catch the famed 1980 film on the big screen, while singing along to 'Jailhouse Rock' and 'Shake Your Tail Feather' and sipping a range of Blues Brothers-inspired cocktails. And yes, you can expect an appearance from on-screen favourite, the Orange Whip – The Everleigh's version is done with crème de cacao, vanilla and orange cream.
On top of that, there'll be complimentary popcorn, NY-style slices from Connie's Pizza and plenty of opportunity for post-movie kick-ons at the bar.
Tickets are $60 a head, which includes your entry to the film, a welcome cocktail on arrival, popcorn, pizza and three movie-inspired mini cocktails.
