Join us for our end of month drinks in the Lions Den at one of newest bars in Melbourne, the Glamp Bar.

The bar is situated on Little Collins Street in the space above modern African restaurant. Glamp is the only venue in Melbourne that will let you drink mouth-watering cocktails and nibble on African-style snacks under safari-style canvas.

Usual beer and wine options are also available.

The space has three distinctive areas, a spacious seating area inside a stunning safari tent, an open bar with enough space for a boogie, and a cosy private seating area that is hidden behind Heavyweight, the resident rhino. Join us in the Lions Den.

Selected cocktails are only TEN BUCKS all night on Thursdays, and members will receive a special cocktail shot on arrival from the bar tender.

If you are beginning to feel peckish, the bars recently revamped food menu delivers the goods. Two cheese and charcuterie boards have been added as sharing options, as well as a variety of savoury cigars made from Tunisian pastry that make for tasty vego and meat-lovers snacks. Overdosed on the cheese?

If you are not a member, book in and join us at this end of month drinks night. Meet some of our hosts and members, learn more about the best and liveliest social activities in Melbourne and start enjoying a great social life and great benefits such as free drinks and discounts to bars, restaurants, shopping, and wine offers.

Trivia - Sherlock Holmes Inn

Sherlock Holmes, 415 Collins Street, Melbourne

Join us for a trivia night at the Sherlock Holmes on Collins Street which is a British styled pub located on Collins Street.

The trivia night is hosted by comedian Janet McLeod and offers winners $50 food & drink vouchers as well as quiz rounds for Jugs of Beer, Bottles of wine etc. Janet is a well-respected comedian and has a way of getting you involved in the night.

The Sherlock Holmes opened in 1985 and the hostelry has been extremely well received, as have its comestibles, ales wines and spirits. So much so that the worst criticism has been that the establishment is too small for the large numbers of discerning citizens who wish to avail themselves of the sundry attractions which this unique tavern affords.

Here is a home for the aficionados of the works of the eneffable Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, where the friendly shades of Dr Watson, Professor Moriarty (a changed man since he went over the falls) and the Stradivarius-playing, opium-smoking genius himself, the Great Detective, await your pleasure.

So meet Nicole at the reserved table for a fun trivia night.

Rutherglen Winery Walkabout Exclusive Weekend Trip

PTV Hub - Southern Cross Station

This weekend trip is sold out, please email us to go on waiting list, also subject to availability.

Saturday 9th to Monday 11th June

Since 1974, thousands of people have descended on Rutherglen for one of the biggest wine festivals in the country. A general admission ticket to Winery Walkabout gets you access to wine tastings, live music, entertainment, tours and more at over 17 wineries, making for an epic jam-packed, fun-filled long weekend!

Many wineries also set up markets, food vans, masterclasses, buffet breakfasts, dinners, VIP tasting areas and more. Winery Walkabout is the best way to get to know Rutherglen and enjoy the atmosphere with your friends.

There's a reason people have been coming back for Walkabout for over 40 years - find out for yourself. Our exclusive trip sold out last year,

Our price gets you travel to and from Albury, two nights twin share accommodation and shuttle buses around the festival. We have booked six twin share rooms that each sleeps two people at the Mantra Hotel. We will take the regional bus to Rutherglen with shuttles from there to the wineries.

We will start the weekend with a train trip to Albury at 12.00 getting in at 4pm (we will have reserved seats this is included in the price). Once in Albury we will have time for a rest and a wander around before dinner (yet to be organised). All food and wine will be at your own expense.

On Sunday morning we will have an early breakfast and jump on the bus to take us to the festival where we will get another shuttle to get us out to the wineries.

On Monday we will have a relaxing start and take the 12.45 train back to Melbourne and are due to arrive back around 5pm.

There is a strong presence of costumes so if you wish to dress up for the festival you are most welcome to. We will work out a theme once we know who’s coming.

The festival booked out in record time last year so get in early.

Meet Nicole at the PTV Hub at Southern Cross Station.

Friday Night Drinks - Trapt

The Basement, 377 Londsdale Street, Melbourne

Walking into Trapt's incredible CBD venue is like discovering a forgotten movie set: filled with leather Chesterfield couches, bare brickwork, and mind-blowingly good cocktails containing everything from butter vodka to Taiwanese whisky, the venue itself is worth visiting for drinks and freshly baked pizza (supplied by the guys at Crust, conveniently located upstairs).

You've ventured down the stairs and around the corner into a dimly lit corridor. As you reach the end of the passageway you step back in time to a sophisticated and relaxed speakeasy bar boasting an elaborate cocktail menu and wielding an impressive selection of award winning Australian spirits, Japanese whiskeys and locally brewed beers.

They only use socially-aware products and support theri fellow Australians by featuring exquisite local and domestic wines, liquors and brews wherever possible so now you can enjoy yourself and feel good too!

This bar does not supply food but Crust Pizzas are upstairs and the staff are all good with you consuming them in the bar.

We will not have a reserved area for this pub. Nicole will get their by 6pm to try and secure an area.

Meet Nicole at the venue.

Friday Night Drinks - Captain Melville

34 Franklin Street, Melbourne

For over 150 years, the bluestone walls of this famed establishment have provided solace and sustenance to Melbournians and visitors alike. Now housing Captain Melville, it has become the destination for accessible dining, imbibing and revelry – all within Melbourne’s oldest public house.

CAPTAIN MELVILLE was a man with a devilish spirit and a sense of adventure. He was transported from Scotland to Van Diemen's Land at the age of 15 but rehabilitation was not in his nature and he constantly escaped — facing the wrath of the courts each time he was apprehended.

So meet Nicole at the reserved tables.
Suffer no longer from scarcity of choice for they provide pleasing liquor supplies to quench the thirst of each and every passing party.

Victorian wines and beers are showcased alongside iconic Australian and international varieties. Don’t expect to see any Cosmopolitans on the menu; the cocktails are old-fashioned with names paying playful reference to Captain Melville’s era.

Asfar as food goes, think pub food, done well. All food is sourced from ethical and sustainable Victorian farms and producers of the region traversed by the rebel bushranger himself. The menu focuses on communal, casual eating, with shared dishes, steaks, snacks, and of course, the pub classics – all using house-made ingredients where possible. Head chef, Shayne McCallum, who has earned his stripes at many iconic Melbourne establishments clearly presents his mission to create high quality pub food for all.
