Contain Yourself

Contain Yourself

The white hart has always been a creature of myth and legend.

The ancient Celts saw it as a harbinger of doom. The French believed that to harm a white hart meant to be eternally cursed with the pain of unrequited love. The Scots saw it as a symbol of purity, redemption and good fortune.

But you don't have to worry about any of that because in Melbourne, it means only one thing - an all encompassing gathering space with great music, the finest craft beers and cocktails, boutique wines, great food and a kaleidoscopic visual feast of projections and graffiti.

Located in the heart of the city in a converted car park at the end of Whitehart Lane is a unique green zone with an industrial edge – a place to party, or just relax and talk at the end of the day.

Melbournes CBD now has a WHITE HART.

I Hart Rum is a festival that combines the atmosphere of Melbourne’s top bars with some of the world’s best rum. Learning, tasting, Caribbean food, DJ's and live entertainment.
