Four Pillars Gin Bar Takeover

After work drinks have never been this good, get to The Duke for some gin-spiration.

Four Pillars Gin has taken over Level 1 this winter with flights, bespoke gin cocktails and the infamous Bloody Shiraz Gin (get in quick for this limited edition… like, run) making the rounds this season.

Puppy Parma

Ruff weather coming? Parma Tuesday’s at this secret gem have just got even better with the expansion of their weekly special now including man’s best friend. Every Tuesday, from just $5 (dog) – $15 (human).

Magic Rooftop

Master potion-makers behind the bar have crafted a brand-new cocktail list. Sip on specialty potions like Chuckle Juice, Fire Whiskey or the Imperial Tattletale.

All rooftop booths are housed underneath a large marquee to keep you toasty, warm and dry in the colder months.

Think all things wizarding world – Spellbound Sweets, Parliament Wands, MacArthur Broomsticks & Imperial Potions Co.

Magic never ends, open 7 days.

Barrel Buddies

Beer Deluxe has launched their new beer subscription. Netflix, but with beer? Drinks, but with chill?

Instead of buying a beer from the bar, you can now purchase a package that allows you to drink exclusive, barrel aged beer from straight from the barrel bar for a set period.

Packages starting at $60; One Night Stand, The Fling or The Commitment for those looking for something long-term.

Grain vs Grass

Discover the unique flavours of grass and grain fed beef at Grass vs Grain.

Local beef and wine suppliers will join us on the evening to talk us through the pairings.

On Wednesday 24 July, enjoy a four-course sharing style meal showcasing the finest grass fed and grain fed beef from local farms paired with complementary wines. Think beef carpaccio, beef tartare and steaks.

Bookings are essential.

Wine & Yoga

Came for the stretch and stayed for the snacks. Mats and wine provided!

Check out the 45-minute vinyasa yoga class, 6pm Wednesday, fortnightly with your best gal pals. Afterwards? Namaste right there and drink all the wines!

Vegan Bottomless Brunch

Put the session back into Sundays with live R&B vibes and 2hrs of bottomless spritz for just $60pp.

Think luxe grazing platters, they’re vegan too… while you treat those taste buds to our signature Spritz (Elderflower, Aperol & Bianco please), our Prosecco Fountain or even a Hawthorn Pale Ale. Bookings are essential!
