This year, the Super Garden Party will bring together Melbourne’s most mouth-watering restaurants for a slew of delicious pop-ups.

If the foodie within you is still searching for more, you’ll be thrilled to know there will also be droolworthy feeds from the renowned Atlas Dining, plus vegetarian and vegan delights from Colours.

Sips

We all know a garden party isn’t complete without a well-stocked bar.

Located in the heart of the Super Garden Party, the Hop Harvest bar is perfect for kicking back and relaxing with a frothy craft brew in hand. Showcasing smaller, locally-based boutique breweries, the pop-up is a beer connoisseur’s dream.

With more than 30 local wines curated by a renowned Melbourne sommelier, the Grapevine Bar is the perfect pit stop for vino lovers. Raise a pinky and enjoy a sensory journey through some of Australia’s best wine regions and established boutique wineries.

But wait, there’s more. Here to satisfy all your fruity, fragrant cravings is the Cocktail Quarter. Each of the drinks feature delicious botanical fruits and herbs in line with the garden party theme. Expect unexpected creations like Mango and Coriander Margaritas, Watermelon Basil Coolers and Kiwi Strawberry Mojitos.

Sounds

Acting as the cherry on top to a perfect day out, the Super Garden Party is sporting a lineup of local musicians at the Elms Stage, bringing the good vibes all day long.

From acoustic duos, to DJs and saxophonists, the Elms Stage will be setting the tone for the day with high energy performances. Between sets take a load off in the Grazing Lounge, a boho-inspired outdoor lounge.
