Terrific Tazio – Melbourne, VIC

Stylish and warm with a constantly evolving Italian menu – that’s Tazio, and you can get a piece of it for your party. Established in 2005, Tazio was among the first of the new school restaurants in Flinders Lane before it was a cool precinct.

The Function Room includes a large rectangular space that is purpose designed for events, with lots of standing room and a mixture of high and low seating. Think marble highbars and Chesterfield banquettes. Think party!

Melbourne punters rejoice with more easing of restrictions

From Friday more Melbournians were allowed on dance floors, as Covid restrictions dropped back to their most relaxed in more than a year. The patron cap was lifted to 75 per cent of capacity and a dance floor rule restricting dancers to 50 people has been lifted. Also if you prefer socialising at home you can now have 100 people at your house. So what are you waiting for? Get mingling.

Dance the Rona away

We are not out of the woods yet Australia, but Covid underdog Melbourne has been host to heartwarming scenes of people hitting nightclub dance floors for the first time in eight months.

Even the biggest dance floors are still only allowed to hold a maximum of 50 punters, but  at this stage we will take what we can get, thanks.

Sad news for Melbourne bar scene

Sorry to see Dogs Bar in St Kilda has shut its doors for good after falling behind in rent payments during the Covid lockdown. Dogs opened in 1989 and helped shape the Melbourne late night and live gig scene. It  was known for being a local’s bar where everyone felt welcome. Now its gone. Bummer!
