Combining style and sustainability the shipping container bar has been crafted by local maker and designer, Simon Wightwick.
The menu pays homage to the humble apple - house-made apple and pear ciders, imports from France and a selection of Australian guest ciders. Calvados and Applejacks feature as well as cocktails designed by Rob Hall, who will lead the bar through its opening season and beyond, both as creative head and manager of hospitality.
Hall's resume includes The Botanist, Sloane Square (London) and The Royal Shakespeare Company, Stratford upon Avon - he is excited for the opportunity to work with hyper-local, field to shaker produce and has designed the menu to highlight the integrity of the raw materials.
The Orchard Bar is a garden party celebrating all things cider, one hour from the Melbourne CBD.
