Cafe Andiamo (Melbourne)

Alfresco Perfecto!

By Elise 

Degraves Street is well known amongst Melbournians as the hub to which the city’s hipsters flock, and with that knowledge comes images of little more than under 25’s in cardigans drinking organic coffee and discussing Hemingway with the deepest intensity. However, upon my decision to delve into Degraves, and fully embrace its unique and distinctly quirky style, I was overwhelmingly pleased to discover that it is home to Cafe Andiamo, which proved to be, in my opinion, one of the best cafes in inner city Melbourne.  [Read more…]

Bang! More than terrifying heavy metal (Melbourne)

facebooktwittermailfacebooktwittermailby feather

By Elise!

Every Saturday at the Royal Melbourne Hotel on Bourke Street, you can find a group of around 60% heavy metal fans and 40% Banggenerally keen party goers queuing up to go to Bang! The lines are certainly long, but if you don’t mind waiting somewhere in the region of an hour to get your foot in the door, then Bang! is a great place to head on a Saturday night in Melbourne.

The main room at Bang! caters to the metal loving crowd. If you are one of them, then you’ve probably found the best possible club for you, as it features live bands and some very scary music, which I assume is your thing. Drinks prices run fairly standard at Bang; with mixed drinks landing somewhere between $7 and $15, and shots between $5 and 10, however like the line outside, service can take a while.

If, like me, the metal music strikes fear into your heart, then you can head upstairs to find a large dance floor and additional bar, where the music is more “let’s party all night” than it is “let’s party all night and then scream at our mothers”. This area is much smaller than the downstairs area; however it plays plenty of modern club music, plus some throwback 90’s jams, which is always a good thing.

Sadly, it is a fact that Saturday night will always be expensive, however if you’re looking for somewhere where your night out is likely to be worth your coin, and features a large variety of music, then I highly recommend Bang! on Bourke.

Bimbo Deluxe (Melbourne)

Outstanding music, better sangria

By Elise

The always bustling Brunswick Street is known for being home to some of Fitzroy’s best cafes, restaurants and bars. Bimbo Deluxe bar, referred to by locals as Bimbo’s, remains one of the area’s most popular bars, as well as one of my personal favourites. I can neither confirm nor deny that I have had dreams about Bimbo’s mixed berry dessert pizza, so stop hounding me about it, it’s getting creepy.

Asian Beer Cafe (Melbourne)

The food is better than the name, I swear

By Elise 

University students like me are often a thrifty lot by necessity, and I’m sure many would brave some of the worst pizza imaginable if it cost just $4. Fortunately, Melbourne’s Asian Beer Cafe provides some of the best pizza imaginable for just $4, and that is enough to bring an almost literal tear of happiness to this student’s eye.  [Read more…]
