Is there someone you really want to ask out, but you are too scared of taking the risk and seeming a bit crazy? Do you think it is putting 3 trains on the roof of a building crazy? Of course not, so go now and invite them here to see how well something a little crazy can work. At Easey’s in Collingwood you will find what we think is the most fun burger experience in Melbourne. The highlight of course is getting a seat up in one of the train carriages, that boast a surprisingly good view of Melbourne.

High Tea – Langham Hotel

Fancy Dates, Melbourne

High tea rather than seeming like a romantic date idea usually conjures up images of crusty old ladies, sipping tea and commenting on the decline in manners of today’s youth. However the High Tea at the Langham Hotel in Melbourne provides a much slicker and trendier experience than you’d expect.

We have written previously on how to spice up the tired date idea combo of dinner and a show, however Prix Fixe in Melbourne’s CBD spices up this concept in the most literal of ways. At the restaurant’s heart is the concept of being a place “Where dinner becomes the show.” Forget movie theatres and play halls where you have to sit silently as you passively watch the show take place in the distance. At Prix Fixe the show is delivered to your table. You don’t just see and hear the show like at the movies,  instead you also touch, taste and smell it. All the classics have had legendary directors Spielberg, Tarantino, Lucas, etc. and the show here is no exception with chef Philippa Sibley  bringing her vision to life.
