International Women's Day Bar Takeover
An all-star team of female bartenders will be shaking up cocktails for charity at Shady Pines Saloon.
March 06, 2020
Drinking delicious and expertly made cocktails for a good cause is something we can all get behind. This International Women's Day, Darlinghurst's much-loved Shady Pines Saloon is doing it for the girls and bringing in an elite team of Sydney's finest female bartenders for a women-only bar takeover.
The all-star team is made up of Georgia Collins and Alexandra Hooker from The Baxter Inn, PS40's Meg Litherland, Jas Pirovoc from Cantina Ok!, Brit Rowe and Sarah Mycock from Old Mate's Place, Bulletin Place's Atlanta Pahulu, Emma Bernadi from Alberto Lounge, Double Deuce Lounge's Claudia Morgan and Shady's own Gracie Peters and Felicity Eshmann. They'll all be donating their time for the event, and shaking and stirring their own signature creations — with all proceeds going to Rize Up.
The Australian charity helps victims of domestic violence by providing them with food, bedding, funding and education.
Doors to the basement bar open at 4pm, with the cocktails and festivities kicking on until midnight. As is always the case at Shady Pines, there'll be plenty of peanuts to snack on and honky tonk tunes to boogie to.
