Social Dinner Night in Melbourne CBD

Sherlock Holmes, 415 Collins Street, Melbourne

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

We are heading to one of our favourite places in the city, the Sherlock Holmes on Collins Street which is a British styled pub located on Collins Street for a social dinner during the week.

The Sherlock Holmes has a selection of dishes to hearty meals and a great selection of beers and wines. There is great variety of pub grub and an extensive range of beers many served from the big pump handles with some traditional type English ales such as Hobgoblin, ESB and Old Speckled Hen to name a few.

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 dinner that has a maximum of 10 people.

Stalactites, 177-183 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne

Join us on a Friday night bar and dinner adventure.

We will be starting this adventure at Stalactites Restaurant for some Greek food fun. Dining at Stalactites has a well-earned reputation as uncomplicated, traditional Greek food and is the longest running 24 hour Greek restaurant in Melbourne. We will enjoy an hour and a half of this dining Greek experience.

This is just the start of our adventure. From there we move just around the corner to StoryVille.

Step right up and turn the page, choose your own adventure at StoryVille. But beware that this fairy-tale is not for the faint of heart. For once you have passed through the gateways of StoryVille, you have fallen down the rabbit hole, discovered the lion through the wardrobe, and wandered along the pathways of the enchanted forest.

StoryVille is themed around the childhood fables and fairy-tales that we all know and love; all encompassed in a venue that ignites the imagination. Here your favourite stories come to life; through whimsical and unique interior design and our colourful cocktail menu.

With cocktail in hand, DJ music and entertainers, you will dance through a door to find yourself in another world. Take the dark or light roads, let your soul unwind and unleash your inner mythical being in a place where anything is possible.

The cocktails are influenced by celebrated pieces of classic literature and some your favourite childrens books. Your experience sitting beneath the towering toadstools in the Mushroom Palace will be nothing short of magical and try one of their artisan cocktails while enjoying the experience.

The adventure will have you dancing from story to story through their enchanted doorways to the wilder side of life.

There is a $40 minimum spend at StoryVille per person for each session available

The trail continues past the Zoo and towards Docklands and then back to Southbank which is ideal for some drinks, ice creams or gelato.

The lunch venue is the historic Fairfield Boat House to enjoy an informal outdoor dining experience. Relax by the river in an historic riverside garden setting watching the rowers on their classic designed rowing skiffs which are unique in the Southern Hemisphere.

Various lunch options are available from the outdoor grill all cooked in front of your eyes.
