By Gracyn McEwan - 12 Nov 2018


It might be back to the full working week this week, but that doesn't mean all the fun has to stop. 

Melbourne's got your back with a beer-based degustation dinner at Henry Sugar, an exhibition feat. tiny artwork and the Moonlit Markets are back to help your Thursday go that little bit quicker. 

Here are 5 awesome things to do in Melbourne this week.

Night Noodle Markets

If you've been living under some kind of rock then you'll be pleased to know that the Night Noodle Markets are back on again this year. As of right now.

Kicking off last Thursday, the Night Noodle Markets brings together Asian-influenced food stalls from all around Australia. You'll find the likes of Mr Miyagi, Sash Japanese, Wondebao amongst others dotted around Birrarung Marr.

Where: Birrarung Marr, Melbourne
When: Until November 25, 5pm - 9pm

SMALL! Exhibition

More than 260 artists will have their tiny works showcased at the SMALL! exhibition this week, with nothing larger 20 x 20cm (that’s smaller than a ruler). The exhibition features all kinds of artists, from those with established careers, to community groups and fine arts students. All works are going for just $150, so you can finally start decorating those plain white walls in your house.

Where: fortyfivedownstairs, 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne
When: Thursday 8—Saturday 18 November

Cool Choir

Calling all good and bad singers, here’s your chance to belt out songs with other equally passionate singers. Cool Choir is for those who love to sing (or screech) with their best friends in the lounge room, without a care in the world—there’s no sheet music, instructor or end of year performance by the way. Come along to the 45-minute session at The Tote if you’re in the mood for a mid-week sing-along sesh.

Where: The Tote, 71 Johnston St, Collingwood
When: Tuesday 13 November, 8—8:45pm

Edge Brewing x Henry Sugar Dinner

The legends at Henry Sugar will be hosting a special beer-based degustation dinner with the local brewers from Edge Brewing Project.

The award-winning brewers will have their native ingredient focussed craft beers matched with five courses, guided by owner and brewer Adam Betts. Be prepared to salivate over dishes like mango and chilli glazed chicken breast with a kohlrabi yoghurt remoulade, paired with the limited-edition Jungle Gelato sour beer, brewed with mango and lactose.

Where: Henry Sugar, 296—298 Rathdowne St, Carlton North
When: Wednesday 14 November, 6:30—9:30pm

Moonlit Markets

Eastland’s Moonlit Markets have returned to bring you live DJs, street food, pop-up bars and stalls featuring goods from local designers and artisans, every Thursday. Prepare your taste buds for some food truck nibbles from Dana’s Falafel, Those Guys Food (Southern American dishes), and Roadrunner Fried Chicken, or down some beverages from Coldstream Brewery and Saccha Sugarcane Juice. Not a bad way to spend a Thursday night.

Where: Melbourne Street, next to Ringwood Town Square
When: Every Thursday until 20 December, 5—9pm
