Whether it's a night out with the girls, the boys, or date night with the wife or the husband, we all need some time to head out, grab a good meal or grab a drink and enjoy ourselves - sans kids. So call the babysitter - here is Mamma's list of some fav places to come when you are in need of heading out - after dark.
A new pub that is down to earth, family focused and welcoming.
The Reverence is one of those great pubs that feels both old and new - in the best way. With a tip of the sombrero to Mexico it hits Mamma's foodie heart!
This is a step up from your average pub - the food is EXCELLENT
Yes - tonight Josephine, tonight! Seize the day folks and seize some kid free time to check out this very cool bar
Well this place certainly has everything Mamma loves. It's such a cosy place in the winter with its fireplace and stone walls, and then on nice days there is the great outdoor deck and HUGE expanse of grass AND the old boat & sandpit for the kiddies to play too.
Mamma says never judge a book by it's cover, but in this case, go right ahead! This amazing art deco building hides some treasure in Newport.
Down the alley and up the staircase from uber cool Slice Girls lies a wonderful world of happiness. It's comforting, and warm (sometimes with toasty fire) , and rustic-ly gorgeous and.... just really cool.
Country pubs are becoming so much more than a spot to get a pot and parma these days and the Farmers Arms is no exception to the rule here.
Well, this place is just amazing. Perched on the Anglesea cliffs in the Anglesea Surf Life Saving Club - with a killer view and a gorgeous coastal fit out is the fabulous eatery - Captain Moonlite.
"This place is soooooooo good!" This is what Mamma says every time we come here. The food is AMAZING, the coffee is like tasty velvet, and the Moroccan fit out is gorgeous.
Quaint, colourful and absolutely delicious. Mexican food is a mamma fave and this place serves up traditional, authentic and flavoursome food.
Is it a little cheesy, of course! But thats the fun - you need to go here ready to have a good time and just go with the flow (pun intended).
New Year Eve - time to party like a Greek! Celebrate New Year Hellenic style, with an epic Greek feast and their famous hospitality....Bookings now being taken for New Year's Eve at Hellenic Hotel
A gastro pub with some super style in the heart of Werribee. They make their own ice cream and now they have a custom built smoke pit!
This popular restaurant in Footscray is serving some amazing food and every Friday and Saturday - you can enjoy a mixed all you can eat buffet for $18 - it's a great way to try a little of everything and see what your fave dish is.
It's no secret Mamma loves this place, she has shouted it from the mountain tops for over a year now. - and is again here to remind you of this gem we have on our doorstep.
With a fab new cubby and their new summer dinner menu - Mamma says you have to check out The Black Sheep!
Come and enjoy some beautiful food on New Years Eve, then soak up the atmosphere or watch the midnight fireworks. Two sittings 5pm & 8pm, bookings essential and deposit required.
