Melbourne’s Food & Wine Festival Comes to Collins St
Melbourne’s newest destination for luxury, 80 Collins, is reinvigorating the ‘Paris End’ of Collins Street with a new network of laneways. With concept fashion labels, flagship brands, unique restaurants, bars and cafes, the top end of town is ready to buzz again!
In an event that’s part of Melbourne’s Food and Wine Festival, Eating 80 Collins features three ‘Light Up the Night’ experiences on Wednesday 21 July, and a coveted ‘Lunch Illuminated’ experience on Saturday 24 July.
Think of it as a travelling degustation event from one outlet to another, all just a few steps away from each other. New outlets participating are Farmer’s Daughters, Handpicked Cellar Door, Nick & Nora’s and Next Hotel Melbourne’s La Madonna.
Designer Şener Besim will present his first ever large-scale sculptural work, Light the Way, in each of the three laneways at 80 Collins, visible from Collins, Exhibition and Little Collins streets from Monday 19 July. Taking inspiration from one of Şener’s iconic pieces of jewellery, the public design installation will light the way in winter.
There are now nine food and drink destinations open at 80 Collins. Add Ingresso, Maverick, Bowls Baby, People’s Coffee and Upstate Coffee alongside six fashion, jewellery and footwear stores: Saint Laurent, Golden Goose, FEIT, Mulberry, Georg Jensen and Şener Besim’s eponymous concept store, Şener Besim.
With more to come, 80 Collins is the luxe fashion and dining hub within the city!
