NOT: Terrace Bar & Bistro, Art Series The Cullen, 161 Commercial Road, Prahran

The Cullen is a glamorous boutique hotel in Prahran which has been inspired by artist Adam Cullen, and it’s one of the series of Art Hotel popping up in Melbourne. While a hotel is not an obvious location for dining out, a high-end boutique hotel does have a certain reputation for quality to uphold, and […]

HOT: Shanghai Cultural Session, David’s Restaurant, 4 Cecil Place, Prahran

What’s the best antidote for coldest day in Melbourne in 10 years? Why, bunkering down for dinner at David’s Restaurant in Prahran.

HOT: Coco Republic Lifestyle Lecture Series, 500 Church St, Richmond

I have a bulging email folder called ‘Newsletters’ which contains all the contents of the million mailing lists to which I subscribe. It’s an unmanageable beast (just like my Google Reader, currently at 1000+ unread items) but hey, I like to keep in the know. Out of this mass of emails, a recent newsletter from […]
