In the home of the former Press Club, you’ll find Elchi, offering modern Indian fare and yummy cocktails, stately Society is your new “special occasion” venue, set in luxe curved booths beneath sparkling chandeliers, while colourful Tippy-Tay has opened within the Garden State Hotel to feed you generous Italian and a negroni fountain, should you so desire.
Or, check out Sojourn – the bold, blue and fabulous venue serving up delicious eats and a bird’s-eye view of Little Collins Street.
Find a vibrant workplace
After the COVID-sparked workplace revolution, never have there been more Melburnians taking jobs with interstate or international companies. At the same time, side hustles and freelancing have become many people’s new norm.
But if working from home is starting to drag, then why not look into one of Melbourne’s vibrant co-working spaces to meet a like-minded network and enjoy some colleague camaraderie?
Membership at RACV’s City Club not only gives you access to CBD hot desks and meeting rooms, but you can also use the stunning fitness centre, pool, spa, and restaurants giving you a comprehensive city base with a wonderful community. And did we mention the discounted accommodation rates at RACV Resorts further afield when you need a city breather to Cape Schank or Healesville?
Melbourne might be famous for its urban art galleries and eateries, but on the city fringes lie some truly stunning beach walks – or icey dips, should you wish to partake in the current cold water swimming trend.
St Kilda and Williamstown make obvious choices for a morning stroll within easy reach of the city, but if you have a little more time then head to Aspendale for white sand and sparkling seas that rival those further down the Peninsula. It’s dogs-off-lead time until 11am in winter so bring your pooch or expect some pat requests from local fur babies.
Make a market day
Ah, to be able to procure produce from outside your home’s five-kilometre radius!
Make a day of meal-making with a morning trip to one of the city’s lively markets to gather your ingredients before slowly preparing a seasonal feast for your family and friends.
Dandenong Market covers all your cuisine needs, bringing 156 nationalities under one roof. Preston Market is the north-side go-to for food and culture, while South Melbourne Market dishes up all your produce needs alongside fashion and moreish ready-to-eat fare.
If you’re free one Wednesday evening, rug up and head to the Queen Vic Market’s Winter Night Market for street food, roving entertainment and a silent disco.
Book a staycation
With so much happening in the city, it’d be worth booking a night or two in town to really soak up the much-missed ambiance and save yourself the effort of a late-night trip home.
RACV’s City Club is always a no-brainer for weary head-laying, given its central Bourke Street location puts you on the doorstep of Fed Square, the ritzy Paris end of town or grungy Flinders Lane. To stay, you must be a member. Thankfully, it’s simple to become one.
Surprise yourself with an RACV Club Membership. Open your world to an extensive range of premium services, facilities, events and exclusive benefits. To find out more, or to book a tour of the recently renovated City Club, visit racv.com.au/club or call 1300 501 501.
