Are you the type to spend hours and days before a meal studying the menu and mentally preordering? Us too. So, it can be a nice change of pace to commit to a night out without knowing any details — even where it's happening. Enter The Signet Speakeasy. Maker of mighty smooth whisky, Glenmorangie, is collaborating with fine dining restaurant Vue de Monde and its in-house cocktail joint, Lui Bar, to create an immersive pop-up bar this June.

This speakeasy will celebrate the fine amber liquor (which is the first in the world to use roasted chocolate malt barley) in a very Melbourne way — via a secret warehouse transformation. The location will remain a secret until a few days before the event begins.

Head along to the swingin' speakeasy to sample Glenmorangie Signet — neat or in cocktail form courtesy of Lui  — alongside some pretty lavish snacks by the Vue De Monde crew. Also on the agenda are smooth jazz vibes and 'theatrical surprises', so bring an open mind, an empty stomach and perhaps some sensible shoes, just in case.

Hosted by Glenmorangie's head of maturing whisky stock, Brendan McCarron, the event will lead you on a physical journey through the different spaces of the warehouse, from a candlelit lobby to the speakeasy bar, then onto a decadent mandarin grove. Each space will represent one of the signature notes of Signet: chocolate, espresso and mandarin. Tickets cost $85 per person and include one neat Signet, three cocktails and three different food offerings, alongside your guided wander. The tour should take you about an hour to complete, but you're welcome to hang out in the mandarin grove afterwards — there'll be more drinks, snacks and acoustic music to enjoy.

The Signet Speakeasy will run from 6–10pm across Thursday, June 27–Saturday, June 29. To purchase tickets, head this way
