Cameron Par­ish, The Ever­leigh

We pre­dict big things for this rel­a­tive new­bie to the re­vamped, world-fa­mous cock­tail bar

Time Out (Melbourne) - - BAR AWARDS -

THE EVER­LEIGH CON­QUERED the hand­crafted, high­brow, olde-worlde cock­tail ex­pe­ri­ence in Mel­bourne. And then, six years in and with in­ter­na­tional ac­claim, they de­cided to ren­o­vate. The new it­er­a­tion of the Ever­leigh feels more evolved, and in­ter­ac­tion with the bar is more en­cour­aged than in the for­mer days of strict ta­ble ser­vice. Cameron Par­ish has seen the Ever­leigh old and new, hav­ing been part of the team for just over a year. He joined af­ter re­lo­cat­ing from Syd­ney, fresh-eyed and a lit­tle green, but proved him­self with con­stant dis­ci­pline. Work­ing seam­lessly within the team, he honed his so­cial skills over the bar while re­main­ing hum­ble. Af­ter a stretch along­side the cre­ative se­nior bar team, Par­ish is now rolling out some of the best drinks the Ever­leigh has seen to date. Be­ing served by Cameron is a plea­sure, as he has to­tal con­trol over the bar while main­tain­ing his ra­zor-sharp chat. We reckon he has what it takes to be one of the top dogs in the next gen­er­a­tion off bar­tend­ing. Lvl 1, 150-156Gert156 gertrude St, Fitzroy 3065. 03 9616 2229. www.theev­er­leigh.com.
