Melbourne’s Shebeen Bar

First world problems such as ‘which imported beer should I drink tonight?’ will soon have more wide-reaching consequences with the imminent (fingers crossed) opening of Shebeen, a new Melbourne watering hole cum international development from entrepeneur Simon Griffiths.

Griffiths has teamed with Melbourne bar and design luminaries such as Vernon Chalker and Michael Anderson (of Madame Brussels and Gin Palace fame) to deliver a non-profit hospitality venue. The basic premise is that Shebeen will sell beer and wines from developing nations around the globe, and AUD$2 from each drink sold will be donated directly to a specific development project in that country. The Shebeen Social Investment Fund is currently accepting small and large-scale donations and aims to reach AUD$250,000 by 29 October, 2010. If you like the sound of combining philanthropy with pleasure, give generously so they can too.
