Fancy Free, the new cocktail bar from Black Pearl alumni Matt Stirling, Rob Libecans and Ryan Noreiks, might only be sticking around for six months, but it's certainly starting off strong. When the CBD venue launches later this month, it'll do so with some pretty special mates in tow, handing over its opening kitchen residency slot to famed Sydney burger joint Mary's.

The two-month stint will mark Mary's first proper pop-up in Melbourne and it's promising one heck of a food and drink lineup to christen Fancy Free's new digs. If you've sampled the goods at the ever-popular Newtown restaurant, or perhaps during brief local appearances for the likes of Download and Laneway festivals and a one-day takeover of South Yarra's Leonards House of Love, you'll know this is one not to miss.

Marys, Sydney.

Mary's own Jake Smyth and Kenny Graham will be venturing south to bring Melbourne a taste of their smash-hit fare, the menu featuring the duo's signature mushroom burger, cheeseburger, mash and gravy, fried chicken and of course, the legendary Mary's burger.

To match, expect a cracker starting lineup of both alcoholic and booze-free cocktails from the acclaimed Fancy Free crew, pouring alongside a rotation of local beers and interesting vino.

Fancy Free will open on Wednesday, February 13 at 381 Little Collins Street, Melbourne.
