It seems spring is the season to channel your inner James Bond, at QT Melbourne's newest pop-up drinks destination, The Martini Bar. Making its home in the hotel's lobby from Thursday, September 15–Saturday, October 8, it's a sophisticated affair, honouring one of history's most famous classic cocktails while also celebrating Four Pillars' much-loved olive leaf gin.

Swan in Thursday to Saturday evenings (5pm till late) for a 'wet' or 'dry' martini, a classic twist known as the Gibson, a house G&T, or the signature Dirty Dancing cocktail. If you fancy a different sort of tipple, there's also a lineup of Aussie wine and beer, plus local bubbles and French champagne.

Meanwhile, the matching food offering celebrates top-notch produce from across the Yarra Valley, where Four Pillars calls home. Expect nibbles like the duck and Bloody Shiraz Gin jelly pâté with sour cherry and crusty bread, marmalade-glazed roast nuts, olives marinated in gin botanicals, and taramasalata served with a Bloody Shiraz caviar.
