Two Espresso Martini Festivals Are Coming To Pump Up Your February

Sydney, at one point we’re going to need to have a chat about how much espresso martini you drink. But, not yet. First, we’ve got a Friday-Saturday caffeine-cocktail combo to get through.

Get off from work on Friday, February 7 and kick the weekend into gear at the Oxford Art Factory with their Espresso Martini Festival. And at only $10 the concoction, no is a hard word to say.

The classic espresso martini makes the list because we love it so, but for those looking to add some decadence to their night, sip on the double-choc chip martini or another of Australia’s fav things, the Golden Gaytime martini.

To help steer your caffeine-rush and jitters onto the dancefloor, the No Scrubs DJs will be spinning 90s and early 00s classics because just like the espresso martini, they’re timeless.

Find it at The Oxford Art Factory, 38-46 Oxford St, Darlinghurst, on Friday, February 7 from 5pm. Tickets are $10 plus booking fee, and can be purchased here.

Then on Saturday, February 8, head to the Factory Theatre in Marrickville because Mr Black’s Caffeine Caravan will be parked in the yard serving up espresso martinis with a school-canteen twist. Except one, the young-Australian staple, the Goon Bag Australiano. That one definitely isn’t a canteen classic.

The Backyard Espresso Martini Fest kicks off at 1pm. There´ll be backyard games to play (Bogan Bingo with Big Daddy Howie) and music to dance to by Bindah (Bad Deep DJs), Randy Knuckles (Melb) and JNR. before the party moves on inside for a set by Cairo Heaven.

To make sure that you’ve got the energy to keep on kicking it into the night, Mr Black will be joined by food trucks to help balance out your caffeinated-alcohol intake. And for those of you feeling charitable as well as sweet, Katherine Sabbath, cake queen, will be in the yard for a bushfire bake sale fundraiser.
