Maybe Sammy Takeover at Curious

The glamorous Sydney bar is checking into the W Melbourne’s subterranean venue for one night only, bringing theatrical cocktails, old Hollywood glamour and all the trimmings that make it Australia’s best.

In December, 1950s-inspired Sydney cocktail bar Maybe Sammy was named the Best Bar in Australasia for the third year straight, after coming in at number 22 on the World’s 50 Best Bars list. And for one night, Melburnians won’t need to go interstate for a taste.

The glamorous, highly entertaining bar is popping up for one night at Curious, the playful basement venue beneath the W Melbourne. Descend a dark spiral staircase into a moody space wrapped in a cocoon of timber for a special evening that’ll transport you to Hollywood and Vegas in the ’50s.

Maybe Sammy co-owner Martin Hudak – who cut his teeth at old-world London institution the American Bar at The Savoy – is heading down with a team of three from Sydney to Melbourne, bringing along five of the bar’s signature drinks to shake, mix and pour at Curious.

W Melbourne music curator Rachel Phillips is also collaborating with Maybe Sammy on an aural line-up reminiscent of the original.

Entry is free, but bookings are required.

From 5pm to late.
