Sip Wine, Nibble Cheese, Feel French
La Nuit Blanche Live
Join us each month as we welcome Melbourne singing sensation Raleigh Williams and her band La Nuit Blanche to Milk the Cow for a night of fromage, wine and French live music.
“Melbourne-based, French-inspired ensemble La Nuit Blanche seeks to bring the French music they love to a modern Australian audience. Featuring the gypsy sounds of accordion and guitar, and the sexy jazz brawn of saxophone and double bass, with purring jazz and pop vocals. Bringing you the songs of Eartha Kitt, Charles Trenet, Camille, Vanessa Paradis, the Amelie soundtrack, Django Reinhardt… Oh la la, c’est si bon!“
Tickets are just $20, and include a glass of French wine on arrival. Tickets that include an all-French cheese and wine flight and a glass of French sparkling on arrival are available for $40 per person. Limited tickets at the door.
Held upstairs at our Carlton fromagerie, our full a la carte menu and cheese selection is available on the night
