HOT: The Cool House, Rokeby Studios, 1/90-94 Rokeby St, Collingwood

The Cool Hunter is a website/newsletter that does exactly that – hunts out the cool, unique and unusual in design, travel, art, food, fashion and events from all around the world and collects them all in one drool-worthy portal. So it makes sense that founder Bill Tikos has decided to bring the website to life […]

HOT: Crop at Lightly Showroom, 3 Glasshouse Rd, Collingwood

Melbourne loves pop up design shops and this weekend there are three worth your attention – The Design Files Open House,  The Cool House and Crop at Lightly Showroom. Not to mention the popular twice-yearly Melbourne Design Market at Federation Square. Make that four! Design studio Lightly have opened up their two-level warehouse and showroom to 25 […]

HOT: Paris to Provence Festival, Como House & Garden, Cnr Williams Road & Lechlade Avenue, South Yarra

Paris to Provence, Melbourne’s favourite festival celebrating all things French, is back in the bucolic surrounds of National Trust’s Como House this weekend. There’s market stalls, music, food and festivities and the festival gets bigger and better every year (this is its third year). Here are my highlights: Grab some charcuterie, cheese and a baguette […]

HOT: Melbourne Bike Share En Masse 2012, Silo by Joost, 123 Hardware Lane, Melbourne

Friday is the most relaxed day of the work week for most of us, so I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with a bike ride and free stuff. In 2011 Andy White aka cycling personality Fyxomatosis gathered together cyclists from all over Melbourne to create a new World Record for the […]

HOT: Union Dining, 270-272 Swan St, Richmond

The weather has finally started to warm up! One by one Melbourne venues are starting to slowly embracing the sunshine and long daylight hours by opening up their terraces, rooftops and balconies (though with outdoor heaters strategically placed, just in case), including Union Dining. Union Dining is a restaurant focusing on local produce served with a […]

HOT: Rockwell and Sons, 288 Smith St, Collingwood

Hello hump day, hello Fried Chicken Wednesday! Every Wednesday night American inspired Rockwell and Sons offer a bargain meal that will challenge the Dirty Bird for finger lickin’ value. For $60 you get a whole Southern style fried chicken plus a whole lot of sides that could easily be meals in themselves – fluffy buttermilk biscuits (otherwise known […]

HOT: Taste of Melbourne 2012, Pelican Lawn, Albert Park

Happy Friday! The weekend weather is looking like it will hold up for Taste of Melbourne‘s new outdoor setting by the banks of Albert Park lake. Thanks to Taste of Melbourne I attended the first night of festivities and here are some of my highlights to act as a guide for your visit… For a savoury […]

HOT: Ballet & Fashion, National Gallery of Victoria, 180 St Kilda Rd, Melbourne

As soon as I found out about NGV’s latest fashion exhibition ‘Ballet & Fashion‘ I knew I had to visit. I love ballet, I love ballet costumes and I love fashion, and I was curious to see what kind of items they had on display. Given the number of fashion designers who have collaborated with […]

WTC Wharf Progressive Dinner + Giveaway

Sponsored by Nuffnang Picture this. It’s a balmy evening. Trees gently sway, creating dappled shadows. You sit by the water’s edge and watch boats pootle along the river, the sunset glistening on your skin as you sip your drink and prepare yourself for a night of feasting. Queensland? Bali? The Mediterranean? No. Right here in […]

HOT: Thirty Eight Chairs, 4A Bond St, South Yarra

Amongst the glitz of Chapel Street you’ll find an unexpected slice of unpretentious Italian charm behind a concrete facade. Turn down unprepossessing Bond Street and draw up a seat at Third Eight Chairs. I promise you won’t regret it. This tiny all-day cafe/restaurant is the work of an ex Caffe e Cucina manager, an ex […]
