I had dinner and then a life drawing class in Richmond.

What kind of things do you like?

quiet bars?

Do you drink, if so what kind of things do you like?

Food? yes or no, if so what kind? Are you into really nice food?

I'm not a bit clubby person - my hens night was on Australia Day, and a lot of venues were booked out with parties. We ended up at a nice big bar, I can't remember the name, I will look it up, but it was virtually empty - they had nice cocktails and sharing platters of food and none of us got particularly more than tipsy.


Are you particularly tied to it being a night thing? Would you consider a high tea, or a chocolate extravaganza somewhere? A beautifully catered picnic somewhere would be nice too.


Thinking of bars/restaurants, there are a few great food places which do good cocktails and a variety of drinks without being too clubby. How many of you will there be?

Izakaya Den is one option - it's Japanese sharing-type food, and they do some great cocktails. It might be hard for very large groups - we've definitely snared a big table there that would seat about 12, but more than that would be tricky.

There is a new place open in the Melbourne Recital Centre called My Mexican Cousin, which is a collaboration between a few different restaurant/bar/coffee people. It has creole food in the evenings, and has a very impressive and yummy looking cocktail menu, although I've only ever had coffee there! They might cater for a much larger bunch.

I'll try to think of some more for you.

The Windsor, Grand Hyatt or Langham for high tea.

Go on a chocolate tour.

Go to a day spa.

Hire a hotel room and have a girly night in.

Do a pole dancing class.

for my hens, we hired a mobile cocktail company that came to my house and served us food and cocktails of my choosing.

Go to Big Red Balloon and look at all the fun classes you can do, or experiences that you can have.

For something a bit different, I love lawn bowls or mini-golf. Lawn bowls gives you an opportunity to dress in 20s inspired white clothes and drink Pimms or G&Ts biggrin.gif

There are also some places that hire out Croquet fields (courts? Pitches?) which is fun.
