Patricia feels a world away from the looming collection of corporate office towers nearby. The charmingly small spot is part European coffee bar, part contemporary Melbourne coffee brewer, and this summer it’s branching out again in collaboration with the Melbourne Gin Company.
On Fridays until mid-February, from 5pm to 8pm, Patricia will moonlight as a dedicated gin-and-tonic bar. There'll be a rotating menu of G&Ts made with MGC Dry Gin and Capi, Strangelove and Fever-Tree tonics. Try the Patricia G&T, a refreshing blend of gin and cold filter coffee (move over, Espresso Martini).
The menu changes fortnightly, and later in the summer will include drinks made with MGC’s newly launched Single Shot Gin, which features seven different botanicals and is more than five years in the making.
Bottles of MGC Dry Gin and Single Shot Gin will be available to take home, too.
