A Not-So-Secret Guide to the Ultimate Saturday in Melbourne

As Australia’s food capital, Melbourne is all kinds of #goals.

We’re talking breakfast to brunch, lunch to dinner and canapés to cocktails, Melbourne is not just a foodie paradise, but the perfect city for those that like a party too.

From deliciously experimental cafes that serve breakfast gnocchi with prosciutto (yes, really), to the most iconic of restaurants with a side serving of *vibes*, there’s pretty much a scene and setting for everyone. The dream place to spend a Saturday wining and dining, we’ve narrowed down a few of our favourite places in Melbourne’s CBD that’ll give you a taste of how special this city really is.

So, if you want to end up in Baroq House for a night of dancing and cocktails, we’ve got the perfect guide to get you there, and in the ultimate party mood.

Narrowing the choices down was a little tough, but we’ve planned the right way to start and finish your Saturday in Melbourne.


Hardware Societe. One of the best spots in the whole city to get breakfast, we promise. Not only is this a destination perfect for showing off just how high the bar is set when it comes to Melbourne brunchin’, but the incredible range of Spanish and French inspired dishes are pretty mouth-watering. The baked eggs? There’s no better way to start your Saturday – fact.


Rooftop at QT. Quench your thirst in one of the hottest spots in the city. Expect your mood to rocket sky high, as you socialise amongst incredible views of Melbourne’s skyline. Situated at the top of boutique hotel QT, prepare for a combination of glamorous decor, delicious cocktails, and all things luxurious. The industrial style interior and fancy dress code provides a certain ambiance that you won’t find anywhere else; the perfect start to an elegant evening.


Kisumé. A dining experience that’s definitely one to remember. Situated on the iconic Flinders Lane, this Australian restaurant embraces the best offerings from Japan, delivering Asian-fusion cuisine on another level. The contemporary décor showcases prints from Australian and Japanese photographers Nobuyoshi Araki and Polly Borland in a striking correlation with the merging of both cultures.


Baroq House. Now it’s time to start the party. Another hidden gem synonymous with Melbourne’s secret laneway bars and nightclubs, we’re one of the city’s most glamorous venues, offering a deeper level of exclusivity. A three-storey mansion on a cobbled laneway, the 17th-century themed décor of the setting is the perfect place to end your evening. For the full Baroq House experience, book your private booth and enjoy table service, high-end bottled spirits, and a range of generous drinks packages.

To request a booth at Baroq House and enjoy your own private area whilst still remaining at the centre of the party, fill out our online form and we’ll be in touch as soon as possible.
