Melbourne Quarter has just unveiled an impressive lineup of complimentary, ticketed events, and activations set to take place within the precinct, marking the end of year festivities. Starting from Tuesday, 5 December and unfolding over two weeks, Melbourne Quarter will come alive with an array of events, including food stalls, live music, and complimentary food and beverages. 

The first week will commence with the generosity of Peddler Espresso, treating attendees to complimentary coffees and mini danishes. Following this, Royal Stacks will take the stage, presenting slider tastings of their two most beloved burgers in a lively atmosphere complete with a DJ spinning tunes for everyone in the outdoor seating area, solidifying itself as the ultimate mid-week lunch destination.

Wrapping up the inaugural week is a pop-up stall featuring Saluministi, Melbourne’s cherished panini bar. Set to open its doors in Melbourne Quarter in the coming months, Saluministi will tantalise taste buds with complimentary mini samplings of their renowned panini and cannoli, accompanied by the beats of an Ital-disco DJ in the background. Founders Peter Mastro and Frank Bressi will be present to connect with the community, offering insights into what the precinct’s newest venue has in store for the future.

In the second week, the newest cafe in Melbourne Quarter, Gilbert, will treat patrons to complimentary coffees accompanied by a sample of their popular flourless brownie. Additionally, Fishbowl is extending an exclusive offer, presenting a VIP tasting of their latest creation, ‘Streetfood By Fishbowl,’ to 125 lucky guests. 

To cap off the festivities, Sergy Boy will host a Happy Hour on Thursday 14 December, featuring roaming canapes, Aperol Spritz, tap beer from Moondog and Balter, wine by the glass, and live music.
