The Perfect Melbourne Bucks Party Starts Here

THE WORLDS BEST CITY

We know Melbourne is the Sporting Capital of the World - the MCG, Flemington racecourse and Melbourne Park confirm that. But, Melbourne also encases the best small bar scene outside of NYC, from the sunny rooftops to the hidden basement bars. King Street houses the full spectrum of ‘Gentleman Clubs’, while 10 minutes in any direction from the CBD will take you to a distinct and cool bar scene. If all else fails, grab your best ten mates and take down Crown Casino, Ocean’s Eleven style…

Melbourne tram
GETTING AROUND

Melbourne is famed for it’s tram network. Travelling all around the city and throughout the inner suburbs, they’re super easy to get on and relatively simple to figure out where it is going. They are also free to catch anywhere within the CBD ‘grid’. The bad is, outside of the CBD, you need a ‘MYKI’ card to catch, which can only be purchased at 7/11 stores, online or some tram/train stations. It’s a pain in the ass you can’t just pay to travel as you go, but them’s the breaks. ‘Breaks’ also being the operative word, as many drivers use them regularly and without warning. Hold onto a pole or you’ll fly down the corridor. Trams also pack out after work, so best to avoid between 5-7pm on weekdays. Taxis and Uber’s are always available, and handy when you want to head to the many bars and hotspots that exist outside of the city. It will cost you about 70 bucks to get a cab from the airport too. You could get the shuttle, or you could realise life is too short to sit on a bus to save $40.

CULTURE VULTURE

Melbourne is the sporting capital, and as a result, you’ll find something to attend most weekends if you look hard enough. Sport; from footy at the ‘G, the round ball across the road at AAMI, cricket in the Summer or horse racing out at Flemington, sport is the lifeblood of Melbourne life. The NBL has also grown in popularity over the past few summers. With new teams coming, corporate/premium packages are quite affordable and a great bucks party idea for the sporting lad.

Feeling arty? The Arts Centre is home to various plays, acts and art installations. Short walk from Flinders Street Station, it is well worth a gander. Not far from there is the National Gallery of Victoria, again, home to some of this countries (and indeed the World’s) best art. 

 

Melbourne park and MCG

The Melbourne Museum (Carlton) is home to Phar Lap if you want to pay your respects to the Equine God before you attempt to take the TAB to the cleaners.

The much-vaunted sand belt houses some of the World’s best golf courses, catering from your weekend hacker to your almost-pro. Golf always sits at the top of one of our most sought after packages and Bucks party ideas, so put it in your drafts when planning, especially for a Melbourne bucks party.

BABY WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT

The Melbourne bar scene is brilliant, and ever evolving. Seriously, by the time you’ve read this, a new hot spot would have been built, opened, cycled through the cool crowd and onto a menu change. Some have stood the test of time though… Currently Melbourne has 2 x bars in the World top 50 - a proud achievement. Perhaps save the Bundy and Coke order for after, and let one of the staff knock up one of their own creations.

If you fancy getting a little classy, the Melbourne cocktail scene is one of the world’s best. Naturally, these are the sort of places better suited for a groom and best man to come together with a clink pre or post Bucks, as oppose to be frequented in the middle of the storm, but well worth the effort. The inner suburbs (Richmond, Fitzroy, South Yarra, Collingwood) all house cocktail bars and creative drink options to suit all-comers.

 

The city’s hottest nightspots reside mainly in the CBD, with some speckled around the likes of Chapel Street and North of the city. Not always the easiest to get into, but worth the effort if smashing $14.00 vodka, lime and sodas ticks a box for you. Did you know The Bucks Co can coordinate nightclub entry for ya’ll? Consider yourself learn’d.
