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

Melbourne is full of surprises, but we are pretty sure that there is no other bar in the city quite as spectacular as Melbourne glamping (that is glamorous camping for the newbies) bar, Glamp.

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 Night in Melbourne CBD

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.
