Culture and cocktails collide this month as a new limited-edition pop-up bar arrives on Gertrude Street. Namely, The Melbourne Gin Company is joining forces with the strip's Oigåll Projects gallery space to deliver an after-hours art fix matched to signature gin-infused sips.

From 4–7pm each Friday night from November 18–December 9, the duo promises to elevate your usual end-of-week knock-offs. Visitors can explore the gallery's current showcase of works from contemporary Australian artists and designers while sipping seasonal concoctions courtesy of the renowned Yarra Valley-based distillery.

On the menu, you'll find the likes of a Gin & Grapefruit Soda, the spicy Gin-ger Smash and a G&T crafted on MGC's award-winning Single Shot Gin. And if you're hoping to inspire some warmer weather, there's the Negroni Float — a negroni spritz reimagined with vanilla ice cream and blood orange dust to garnish.

As for what you'll be looking at, the exhibition roster changes, but Billy Vanilli, Michael Giittings, Eryca Gree and Kate Rohde are just some of the names to grace Oigåll Projects in recent weeks.
