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.
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.
Mamma has been to Two Birds a few times and it's about time we let you all in on our fave little spot to grab a relaxed brew and a bite to eat.
This is just what Williamstown needed. A classy place for some drinks and great food with friends after dark and great coffee, brunch, lunch and snacks by day.
This fantastic pub ticks all the boxes - great food, great atmosphere, an outdoor area, fireplace and bar. This old traditional pub in Williamstown has been renovated and in the right way - still with a cool vintage feel but is also stylish and comfortable.
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.
Seddon, you lucky LUCKY little neighbourhood. With a growing number of great spots to venture into for a great feed, you guys have hit the jackpot - or Copper Pot in this case.
*under new management*
The new owner Zoe has taken over the reins at Black Sheep Cafe
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.
Next time you feel like getting a little La Parisienne, pop in to Small French Bar, Mamma will be going again, and again....perhaps 'sans enfants' next time for a little cheeky cheese and wine or $1 Oysters on THURSDAYS!
Well, Mamma's ol' favourite Sabroso's - has officially retired to make way for C & G (Charles & Gamon). The inside may been refurbished and refreshed but you can still expect the same great service, delicious food and a free glass of bubbles for Mum with your meal this Mothers Day!
