Bar of the Month in Southbank

Hopscotch, Shop 4 Building 2, Riverside Quay, Southbank

Hopscotch is a walk in bar specialising in beers and has a great position riverside on Southbank, so it is a top spot for Bar of the Month.

With 52 flavours of beer on tap, good wine list and some great cocktails it is a good place to sip by the river and enjoy some fun food as well.

Hopscotch is located between St Kilda Road and Queensbridge Street across the river from Flinders Street Station in front of the river, so a great riverside location. The previous bar in this location was the World Bar and Restaurant.

Murder on the Orient Express - Castlemaine

Railway Hotel, 65 Gingell Street, Castlemaine

The Victorian Historic Railways is putting on a Night on the Orient Express!! We travel from Castlemaine to Maldon while viewing this classic 1974 film aboard their classic steam train.

We will open this up for individuals to book separately. Please book online for the railways experience and then book in here so that we can book a group for dinner together.

If you want to stay in Castlemaine please make your own arrangements.

A welcome aboard glass of champagne sets the scene. A short introductory talk explains some of the background and actual events that led Agatha Christie to pen the novel.

We view the movie as our train slowly steams through the night to Maldon. Accompanied by the sights and sounds of our steam engine, the level crossing bells, the passing lights in the night, it is an unforgettable experience.

You are aboard the “Orient Express" - Murder on the Orient Express.

During the journey and at interval at Maldon the fully stocked bar is open and our stewards are on hand to offer a drinks' and snack service that Poirot would be proud of! On the return to Castlemaine watch Poirot use his little grey cells to solve the ultimate "whodunit".

Departs from platform 3 Castlemaine Station at 7.00pm and returns to Castlemaine at 10.00pm.

The atmospheric Railway Hotel just opposite the station in Gingell Street offers a 10% discount on their a la carte menu just for our passengers on movie nights.

To qualify for the meal deal, you must be dressed in appropriate 1920’s to 1930’s to 1940’s outfits and will be pre-booked. Boas, double-breasted suits and violin cases are quite acceptable.

Dinner starts at 5.30, and you must show your movie ticket. It’s a leisurely 2-minute walk to Platform 3

Choose to stay the night in Castlemaine or take the regional train to and from Southern Cross Station. There are trains every hour to Castlemaine during the day but the train back to Southern Cross will leave at 10.55pm and arrives at 00.55am. We are suggesting to stay in Castlemaine and choose your own accommodation, but have listed the return train as a possible alternative.

The price for this spectacular night is $95.00 plus booking fees which is for the train, movie and welcome drink. The intermission bar and dinner will be at own expense.

Please also know if you are interested in staying the night or taking train back to Southern Cross on the night or if you might travel directly to Castlemaine
