Remembering Vernon Chalker, with Sebastian Reaburn

Sebastian Reaburn, of 1806 and Anther Gin fame, is on the show to reflect on the life and times of his friend Vernon Chalker, who has sadly passed away age 55.

Vernon is the man behind Gin Palace – which remains an iconic Melbourne venue – Bar Ampere, Madame Brussels and Collins Quarter. But he’s also one of the main reasons for the city’s world-leading small bar scene, having fought for their place among Victoria’s liquor licensing and late-night lockout laws over the years.
