Fantastic restaurants and bars

Stop off at one of Melbourne’€™s Italian coffee shops to taste coffee granitas and a pastry or at a bakery where you can enjoy cinnamon baked bread and cakes. A visit to Melbourne wouldn’€™t be complete without going to the Moroccan Soup Bar. Can you really afford not to miss out on a delicious three course banquet? Chickpea bake is very popular with the locals who bring their own containers to take this tasty dish back home.

With temperatures in Melbourne often being very hot during the summer months a long, cold glass of beer doesn’€™t come amiss. There are many unusual bars where you can pop in to cool down such as:-

  1. Weird bars
  2. Rooftop bars
  3. Whisky bars
  4. Late night bars

Try a unique cocktail in a funky bar that has great views of the city or a classic drink in a 1960s styled hostelry.

With so many attractions in Melbourne visitors are quite spoilt for choice. If you love shopping at outdoor markets you definitely won’€™t be disappointed with the awesome Queen Victoria Market. Stallholders sell fresh fruit, vegetables, gifts and souvenirs. Well-known boutique shops offer fantastic, fashionable clothes so you can shop till you drop.

There are also many trendy clubs to dance the nights away listening to your favourite music played by experienced DJs. With so many live music venues Melbourne attracts local and international bands that play all types of music ranging from techno, jazz, blues to grunge rock. There’€™s something for everyone. Why not check out what’€™s on in the many cinemas to catch the latest blockbuster movie? If you prefer to watch a cabaret or comedy show there are many theatres where professionals perform making for a great night out.
