On Saturday October 12, Lion Arts Factory is hosting a festival dedicated to the humble Espresso Martini, and a Golden Gaytime Martini is set to feature.
This will be the first taste of the newly renovated and recently licensed outside courtyard, where guests can take their pick from an espresso martini menu curated for the night.
Festivalgoers will be invited into the decorated courtyard space with two sessions at 4PM and 8PM and invited to try one of three premium cocktails, all at the modest price of $10.
The cocktails available on the night include the Classic Espresso Martini, the Golden Gaytime Martini, and the Double Choc Chip Martini.
Keeping the bellies of guests full will be Down and Out, a new concept from Andy Nowell (Sunny’s Pizza) and Robbie Mather of Nice Pickles. Gang Gang will also be on hand, serving up Asian Inspired Burgers from their very popular food truck.
Entry is free, with the boutique festival also featuring music from Lion Arts Factory DJs and a dance floor.
From 11PM, after the completion of City Calm Down in the main room at LAF, the venue will transform into the brand new MARTINI Festival, a house-disco night.
The Espresso Martini will still be very much at the forefront, as the evening turns from a live music venue and boutique cocktail event into a dance-fuelled club night in the popular Front Room.

You can find the Lion Arts Factory at 68 North Terrace.
