Presenting DrinkMelbourne’s top 6 tipsy events in Melbourne this month…
1. Anyone for Pimm’s? Get out of town and into The Convent Gallery in spa country for a pop-up party dedicated to the posh British tipple. Lawns games will appeal to your competitive side.

5. The distractions of fashion are no excuse to forgo cocktails! The newly revamped Spice Market is the official after party for the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival.
