EDV Melbourne will host an event on February 21 featuring three internationally acclaimed bartenders to raise funds for the Victorian Bushfire Appeal.

Joining the EDV Melbourne bar team on the evening will be Nathan Merriman, Roman Foltan and Steve Schneider.

"Each bartender will be working a one hour shift back-to-back offering two signature cocktails to compile a menu of six discounted drinks," said EDV Melbourne general manager and co-owner, Greg Sanderson.

"From 6pm to 9pm they will be on show behind the bar with all profits from these drinks, tips and donations from the evening going to the Victorian Bush Fire Appeal."

Former Melburnian, Merriman, was crowned the 2012 UK Young Bartender of the Year and helped reopen The American Bar at The Savoy in 2010. He is currently the head bartender at The Club at The Ivy in London. 

Schneider is one of the principal bartenders at New York's acclaimed Employees Only bar, which won the 2011 Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards for World's Best Cocktail Bar. 

Foltan, originally from the Czech Republic, is currently based in the London where he can be found behind the stick at the multi-award winning Artesian Bar.
