The MCA Gin Garden is a perfect way to experience alcohol and art
What better way is there to enjoy some fine art than with a glass of gin in your grasp. (Probably how the artists would of wanted it anyway)! The Museum of Contemporary Art have been holding their first ever pop-up throughout summer, and have just announced The MCA Gin Garden will continue into the beginning of April.
With a cocktail list designed by gin experts Archie Rose, there’s many bohemian delights to try that are inspired by Grayson Perry, Britian’s most acclaimed contemporary artist. The pop-up bar coincides with his new exhibition for MCA’s Sydney International Art Series exhibition Grayson Perry: My Pretty Little Art Career.
Cocktails like the Rose Garden are sure to make you feel fancy, with Archie Rose signature dry gin, earl grey tea, ginger beer and Roses English marmalade. As well as Archie Rose shilling out their artisanal gin talents, Young Henry’s are providing some tinnies, and there’s also an extensive wine list to peruse.
To accompany, there’s some great bar snacks and share plates with oysters, chilli fried calamari and more. We are salivating over the Garden Gate share plate: buttermilk fried chicken, wild mushroom arancini, marinated olives, basil pesto aioli, hummus and grilled flat bread.
Take in the floral scenery and enjoy some intellectual conversations over carefully crafted cocktails, as you drink away those post-summer blues right into Autumn.
