The First Press Guide to - A Melbourne Summer

Summer is officially here ladies and gents. As the weather heats up what’s cooler than being cool? Ice cold. . .  coffee! 10 points if you can pick the song reference.

When we started this blog it was a glorious 34 degrees in Melbourne, and while the sun flooded in our office windows here at our HQ in Kensington we started  chatting about our favourite things to do in our fab city over the summer months.

This has lead us to the inspiration for this post and our first official “First Press Guide To”. Enjoy!


The First Press Guide to - A Melbourne Summer

Go

To Rooftop Cinema. In a city famous for its rooftop experiences, this one has got to take the cake. A large movie screen framed by the Melbourne skyline playing a selection of nostalgic, classic and recent release films. Coupled with a cracking bar and view you’re crazy not to go. Find out more at - Rooftop Cinema Melbourne

Do

Yoga in the park. Centre your Chi and destress from all the craziness of the silly season with an easy to follow yoga class for all levels. Set in the beautiful surrounds of Edinburgh Gardens in North Fitzroy, Blooming Happy Yoga is on 10am Saturdays and Sundays and will leave you feeling good inside and out. Find them on Facebook @bloominghappyyoga

See

The Escher X nendo / Between Two Worlds exhibition at NGV. A truly groundbreaking exhibition, the NGV engaged Chief Designer and Founder, Oki Sato, from the acclaimed nendo design studio in Japan, to enter into what they are describing as a collaborative dialogue with renowned dutch artist Escher. The result includes large scale immersive spaces and installations not previously attempted by an Australian Gallery. For lovers or art, design or even just a great night out thanks to - NGV Friday Nights  

Stay

At Notel Melbourne. If you a reading this and thinking ‘But First Press, I live in Melbourne, I don’t need accom’. Who cares! We are willing to bet your bedroom is not as cool as a fully converted 1960s airstream trailer. Treat yourself to a truly unique experience. Best of all, their mini bars are stocked with free First Press Coffee, so no need to pack your esky for your morning cold drip fix #winning - Book Here  

Drink

Cold Brew & Tonic. Trust us. All you need is a bottle of ‘The Purest’ and some of your favourite tonic. Mix 50/50 and enjoy. Effervescent and refreshing, tonic is an excellent compliment to the berry and citrus notes of our lighter style ready to drink brew. For an after 5 version we recommend that you spike that bad boy with gin.

Don’t forget
