#6 Titanic Theatre Restaurant- The Last Supper
No.1 Nelson Place, Williamstown, VIC 3016 titanic.com.au
A rip-roaring journey through the sinking of the great vessel. Choose between steerage and first class to dine in genteel luxury, or get your Leonardo and Kate spirit into a dancing frenzy with an Irish jig. The deal here is essentially feelgood theatre, three-course dinner and a chance to step back in time for Melbourne’s truly unique and unusual. Note: you’ll need to be a fan of musical theatre!
#7 Ice Bar Melbourne
319 Brunswick St, Fitzroy VIC 3065 icebarmelbourne.com
For an out of the ordinary drinking experience, it’s time to brave sub zero temperatures and relax with a chilly cocktail or an ice shot in your fur lined layers. You’ll be well entertained with photo ops, friendly staff and delicious drinks (mocktails available for those not taking alcohol) while you tackle this new climate. The venue features entirely manmade ice and intricate sculptures carved from a single block of ice. Highly recommended! This would merit a spot on any tourist’s 10 unique and unusual dining experiences in Melbourne.
#8 The Roller Door Cafe
13 Stawell St, West Melbourne VIC 3003 http://www.rollerdoorcafe.com/
Bordering on extreme in its rustic decor, the Roller Door Cafe chooses instead to wow you with its tasty offerings and puts you through a cavalcade of charming homemade style food. This place has transformed ‘delight in the little details’ into an art form with every offering being unique- sumptuous smoothies, the best latte art in town, feijoa & nut crumble and much more.
#9 Murder Mystery Dinner aboard Puffing Billy
1 Old Monbulk Rd, Belgrave VIC 3160 puffingbilly.com.au
Dive into a delicious 3 course roasted dinner at the packing sled, but before that arrives you’ll have time to whet your appetite with solving the murder at hand. A troupe of characters will parade through the historic train, providing background on the case, before you have a chance to quiz them and (between tasty morsels) decide who you think the killer was. The event adds a sense of excitement and mystery to the historic trainride and, fuelled by a roaring fire and with plenty of good drinks available for purchase, it’s hard not to enjoy the occasion.
#10 The Good Things Bar
147 Commercial Road, South Yarra, Victoria, Australia 3141
Surely inside of us all there’s an inner child ready to sup on some butterbeer, polyjuice potion or even the more adult firewhisky and this is the place to do it. Get into the spirit and be warned that most drinkers come in costume. At the end of the festivities, going back to your local won’t feel the same! Get cheesy in the free photobooth, and see if quiz the barstaff on their Harry Potter knowledge. Just a short tram ride from the city centre, this beats some of the best Melbourne bars.
That’s it! A full-bellied round up 10 unique and unusual dining experiences in Melbourne 2017, which one piqued your curiosity most?
