It's all happening in G-town!
For those with the stage confidence of Aretha Franklin, the voice of Adele or the moves like Jagger, cancel your plans for Wednesday night because Geelong’s Gin Garden is offering you your time to shine.
Opening earlier this year, this gin haunt is lined with comfy couches, fresh foliage, and stunning views of the bay, making it the ultimate afternoon delight for some gins and some quality tunes, courtesy of you and your pals.
Hosting karaoke every Wednesday from 2pm until late on Geelong’s Pier, gin lovers will be able to sing their hearts out while also sampling some of the best gin made right here in the region, stocking local gins from across The Great Ocean Road and The Bellarine.
Drinking is simple at the garden. Choose from the likes of Bellarine Teddy and the Fox, Bellarine Old Dodger – Navy Strength, Great Ocean Road Guvvos and the Great Ocean Road Raspberry Gin, then decide on the mixer – ginger beer, elderflower tonic, aromatic tonic, grapefruit soda or Yuzu soda. Simple as that!
If cocktails are more your forte, they’ve got a few gin-based choices to choose from. For something sweet, the ‘Whisper Sweet Nothing’ looks the goods, with Guvvos gin, fresh lemon, raspberry kombucha and fairy floss. If you’re looking for something refreshing, we recommend the ‘Garden Mojito’, complete with raspberry gin, lime juice, pink Moscato, soda, fresh mint and strawberries. Yum!
If all that singing and drinking has made you ravenous, the Gin Garden have you covered with several Mexican inspired garden plates and wholesome garden platters with cheese, seafood, vegan delights or tasty dips. There are even Nutella nachos and a baked cheesecake on the menu if you feel like treating yo’self.
Whether you’ve got a Poker Face or Elastic Heart or are looking to Run to Paradise or simply for a little R.E.S.P.E.C.T, karaoke is the answer.
The Gin Garden is open from 2pm until late Wednesday to Saturday. Bookings are required via the website.
