With International Women’s Day fast approaching on Monday 8 March, we wanted to celebrate the standing, achievements and skills of the inspiring women within our group. Before we went into Perth lockdown 2.0, we asked five women from each of our five Sneakers & Jeans venues to tell us what it meant to be a woman in hospitality in 2021 and tasked them with translating this into a cocktail suited to each of their respective venues.

Alyssa, Ava, Chloe, Eliza and KD spent their time in lockdown curating five truly inspirational cocktails – each in some way showcasing ingredients synonymous with each venues’ signature specialty across the group; everyone’s favourite tequila joint Caballitos; The “GINcredible” Flour Factory; Japanese inspired cocktails at Goody Two’s; beautiful rooftop spritzes at Hadiqa and of course all the American whiskey business that occurs underground at Varnish on King.

“We’re pumped to celebrate this day once again at S&J” says Sneakers & Jeans CEO, Andy Freeman. “Women account for half the S&J workforce – working across the group from Executive level in HQ, Marketing, Events, Venue Management and our high energy bars, restaurants and kitchens. These women are all integral to our team, our culture, and our business successes and we’re happy to herald them on this significant day – all while raising money for the Zonta House Refuge Association once again, in what has already been a crazy year for our industry!”

Each of the below drinks will be pouring 8-13 March exclusively, with $2 from each drink sold once again going to support the inspiring work of the Zonta House Refuge Association.

This is our third year of crafting & empowering Cocktails with a Cause, and we reckon there’s never been a better excuse to sip cocktails while doing some good. We’ll cheers to that, Perth!
