Hot In Melbourne April 2014

Hot things in Melbourne

We don’t know about you, but we love Melbourne. Whether it’s the coastal town of St Kilda, the shopping opportunities or the people, there’s plenty to make you stay in the cosmopolitan hub of Australia. This month, we decided to check out these buzzing venues and hot places to visit, to find out why you should be doing the same!

Loop Roof

Enjoy an evening this weekend at Loop Roof, the newest hangout above Loop Bar in Meyers Place. An open, exotic garden setting with a cocktail bar and café/restaurant, the panoramic views of Melbourne are complimented by offerings of crab, mussels and alcoholic snow cones. Open Friday – Sunday until 1am, this exciting addition to the Melbourne’s nightlife this April keeps the evening going whatever the weather, with a retractable awning system and plenty of heaters to keep diners and drinkers cosy all year round.

Hawthorn Common

For a healthy conscience as well as a scrumptious start to your day this April, grab breakfast at Hawthorn Common. This lovely and fresh café with decked-out alfresco dining entices with the smell of baking bread, roasting coffee beans and even the odd serving of fried bacon – yum. Everything is directly sourced and guaranteed to taste delicious, from the carrot sticks to the extremely on-trend quinoa, for anyone on a health kick. Aside from the healthy smoothies and salads, this place even serves booze and, on Saturdays, gets to grips with downward facing dog with a 7.30am yoga class.

Pop Up Op Shop

Purchase an item of vintage goodness while helping others at the Pop Up Op Shop on Chapel Street. A selection of clothes, books, accessories and home ware, as well as secondhand designer gear from the likes of Gucci and Valentino, this unique store is run by Shekinah Homeless Services Inc, a group of accommodation and support organisations helping those experiencing homelessness in Victoria, and you can help by popping in soon and treating yourself to a thing or two. This is definitely one of the hottest and most beneficial things happening in Melbourne this month.

Captains Of Industry

Ever enjoyed a suit fitting, a quick trim and a quality breakfast under one roof? Step inside Captains Of Industry and let the professionals take care of you with traditional men’s outfitting and dining. In-house hairdresser, Sam Fordyce, offers a wash & cut for $60 or a cutthroat shave for $30, while the bespoke footwear of Roberts & Hassett can set you back $1200, with kangaroo leather uppers. Why not browse the other goods available, including leather wallets, notebooks, bags and belts? The coffee is good and the atmosphere second to none, so pop down one lunchtime and check out what all the fuss is about this April.

Tropicana Juice/Food Bar

Get your own juices flowing this April as the guys at Tropicana blend their special ingredients to give every day a taste of summer. Recognised as “that place with the oranges hanging out the front”, Tropicana serves up breakfasts including bacon and eggs, sandwiches and subs, but the big draw is the smoothies. Packed with fresh fruit, every recipe has been tried and tested, with the South American Top Secret juice being the overwhelming favourite. If you’re not a fan, you can even get your money back – but you might be the first to ever do so.
