We’re one month into Winter and the days are getting colder. But don’t despair. There’s plenty of fun things that are happening around town that will help give you the pick me up you need to sustain yourself until Spring. We’ve rounded up our favourite things on this Winter!



QT Melbourne are taking open-air cinema to the next level… actually they’re taking it all the way to the rooftop.

For five weeks only, The Rooftop at QT will be transformed into an exclusive outdoor cinema. You can catch cult classics while lounging under the stars and amongst Melbourne’s city lights.

In addition to the notoriously satisfying cocktail and snack menu, there’ll be designer popcorn, choc tops on offer, and DJ’s spinning post-movie tunes to keep the good times rolling.

The cinema will be kicking off in August so stay tuned on updates and the list of films at https://www.qthotelsandresorts.com/melbourne/



The Emerson has fired up its game this frosty season by completely transforming its rooftop to replicate Waldo’s living room, in the sky. In partnership with Beluga Vodka, South Yarra’s hot-spot takes us back in time, with a luxuriously cosy space, complete with exclusive Beluga Vodka based cocktails and perfectly matched food pairings, created by the Easey’s Kitchen. When you step into this slice of heaven, over the next nine weeks you won’t even recognise the renowned roof-top; with a total décor transformation from vintage rugs, a traditional fireplace installation, lavish throws and stunning candelabras.

Guests can feel warm, snug and intimate, whilst taking flawless snaps for the gram in a designated photo area; on a vintage chesterfield leather couch, styled to perfection with throws and cushions, to capture THE pic.

The star of the show, Beluga is a noble Russian vodka with a modern attitude. Created by true masters in Siberia for vodka connoisseurs all over the world. The Emerson’s mixologist experts have concocted a delicious range to showcase the this fine, rich and smooth tasting Vodka.
