Melbourne Minute – The Bar Dream

Are you experiencing a career rut? Or worse still, a glut in your social life now winter is upon us? Fear not! The Carlton on Bourke Street has just the remedy.

Introducing The Bar Dream – your once-in-a-blue-moon opportunity to own your own bar in one of six former backpacker rooms on the fourth floor for four weekends in July.

Winners will receive everything they need to get started including the space; $500 towards fit out; a security guard, supervisor and bussie boy; a two-hour planning session with The Carlton’s management team; and a three-hour training session to gain the Responsible Service of Alcohol Certificate.

To enter, prospective proprietors are asked to develop a 500-word creative submission describing their ultimate ‘Bar Dream’ by Friday, 13 June.

Owner Tracey Lester’s number one tip is: “Be as crazy and out there as you can with your ideas.”

For more information or to submit an application visit The Carlton website. And that’s The Bar Dream for the Melbourne Minute.
