Winter has officially begun—but don’t worry Melburnians, we’re here to alleviate your weather woes with suggestions of the cosiest indoor events on offer this week. There’s a chic BYO restaurant experience, a niche theatre performance, wicked student night deals, the first Jurassic Night, and Queen Vic Night Market… heck yes!
Check out our list of 5 awesome things to do in Melbourne this week.
BYO Tuesdays at Luxembourg
Whilst we usually associate BYO with a night of cheap dumplings and debauchery in China Town, BYO Tuesdays at Luxembourg Bistro are a whole different story—this is a far more sophisticated soiree. The expert wait staff will recommend a few quality European-inspired dishes to match your special bottle of vino. With to-die-for dry aged steak, perfectly seasoned trout gravlax, and charcuterie boards for days all on the menu, you know you’re in for a treat. Reserve your table here.
Flesh Eating Tiger by the Owl & Cat Theatre
The Owl & Cat Theatre are making shocking theatre aimed to challenge our thought patterns—and at a budget of $100 a show, they’re doing a damn good job. The storyline of their new play opening on Tuesday is as follows: Man—addicted to alcohol; Woman—addicted to the Man. Intrigued? Grab your tickets here.
Queen Vic Winter Night Market
Heads up folks, the Queen Vic Winter Night Market is back every Wednesday evening for the next 14 weeks—and boy, are we excited! Cosy up with mulled wine, comfort street food including 400 Gradi’s renowned woodfired pizzas and The Brass Coq’s fried chicken, crackling fires, and live music and entertainers. We guarantee that you’ll enjoy the opening event so much that it will become your mid-week winter ritual.
