A four-day Espresso Martini festival is coming to Geelong

On the bill is espresso martinis, and lots of them, everywhere.

Your favourite caffeinated cocktail now has its own festival, right here in Geelong.

Fresh from reopening its doors after a devastating fire last year, the beloved bright pink rooftop bar Sweet Cheeks Cocktail & Dessert Lounge is running a boutique festival devoted entirely to the delicious possibilities of espresso, vodka and coffee liqueur.

Keep up with the latest food and booze news via our website.

Running from Thursday, March 31 to Sunday, April 3 at the venue, the festival will be showcasing a huge variety of this caffeine-loaded, boozy beverage. Expect the classic version (a concoction of vodka, Kahlua and coffee), all the way through to indulgent flavoursome adventures, created especially for this delicious event. We’re thinking (hoping) recipes will include caramel, mint, maybe coconut… the options are endless.

Known for their to-die-for desserts, Sweet Cheeks will also have espresso flavoured desserts on offer to compliment your favourite coffee cocktail. Plus, there will be drink specials and more running throughout the four-day festival and an epic playlist to throw down vibes throughout the day. Of course, you’ll find other spirits, wine and icy cold beers for those of you that don’t like the coffee beverage of our dreams.

Not only a sugar lovers’ paradise, but Sweet Cheeks has also become renowned as the most Insta-worthy venue in the Geelong region, with a striking interior and exterior that gives you the feeling you’ve stepped into a pink-tinged city-oasis. Pair that with an espresso martini (or five), and this my friend is an absolutely unmissable spot for a night out.

There are no tickets or entry fees required. Simply book via the website, arrive and prepare to espresso yourself.
