Make the most of June
Melbourne is famous for its apparent poor weather, but we’re pretty good at making the most out of it. Rug up and enjoy a few events happening on the weekends this June.
Discover Manchester Unity with 1932
The Manchester Unity Building in the heart of the city offers tours as part of Open House Melbourne in July. Given the popularity of the historic icon, curious admirers are now required to enter a ballot just for a chance of a look in. This June, you have the chance to well and truly get in first with 1932 Café & Restaurant.
Set inside and at the base of the Manchester Unity Building, 1932 is an art deco style café dishing up breakfast and lunch Monday to Saturday. which leaves Sunday free for their upcoming event on June 14.
Join them for a champagne breakfast or lunch and you’ll also be treated to an exclusive, guided tour of the beautiful building above, including the “Famous Boardroom”. The breakfast menu includes smashed avocado, English breakfast, or eggs benedict/royal, with dessert, coffee, tea and orange juice also included for $59.
For $69, the lunch set menu will offer a Sunday roast, chicken club burger or Caesar salad, plus a selection of handmade desserts, cakes, croissants and muffins. Both breakfast and lunch comes with champagne and nibbles on arrival, plus the tour. To book, just call 9663 5494 or find them on Facebook.
