What’s On in Melbourne during July

words by niall roeder

The new financial year approaches, so why not plan to spend some dosh when it arrives. Make sense? Doesn’t need to. Another month, another million things to do in Melbourne, Australia’s most vibrant city (shots fired!).

This city has too many kick-ass things coming up to list them all, so we’ve selected a few that will make your July a damn enjoyable one. We look at what’s on in Melbourne during July.

Brand new bars
Despite already being littered with countless supreme watering holes, the Melbourne boozescape keeps growing. Wet your whistle at some of the newest bars on the scene:
Paradise Alley – a warehouse bar on Easey Street with rotating Australian craft beers, custom cocktails and natural wines; that surprise, surprise, channels the miss-match industrial vibe… and you know what? They nail it.
Whitehart – street art lines the walls of this two-level bar made from shipping containers. This Little Bourke Street hang-out offers a superb drinks list and a selection of the city’s food vendors.
Neptune Food & Wine – the wise heads behind Hanoi Hannah, Tokyo Tina, Pastuso and San Telmo have teamed up to bring you a fireplace wine and cocktail bar with Mediterranean flavours.

Epic student art
Some of Victoria’s most talented student artists are on show at the National Gallery of Victoria for Top Arts 2017. Keep an eye out for Icy abstract landscape by Brodie Lowe, 12/09 07-12 by Shanice Fernandez and Who cares (Sushi shark)? by George McGrath.

Top Arts will run from March 17 – July 17 at NGV Australia.

Rave at the museum
Have you ever wanted to prowl around after-hours, like Ben Stiller in Night at the Museum? Well, Melbourne Museum is throwing a string of adults-only parties called Nocturnal, so you can do exactly that… and with cocktails, live music and curator talks.

Nocturnal is the first Friday of every month until June 2018.

Sexy Architecture
Melbourne is architecturally, very good-looking. Open House Melbourne invites people to attend talks, tours and workshops that explore the beautifully designed houses, buildings, infrastructure and landscapes that make up the cityscape.

Open House Melbourne runs over the last weekend of July.
