Bucks night in Melbourne

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by Kaer, Aug 16, 2005.

  1. Since this is where I know a lot of Melbournites are, and also are highly depraved individuals(in a good way), I hope I can get some answers here.

    A good mate of mine is getting married. He's from Melbourne originally, so wants to hold his Bucks Night down there. His brother is best man (living in Melbourne), but isn't the best organiser in the world.

    About 8 of us heading down from Sydney for it. About the same numbers from Melbourne.

    What I'm planning on is getting a couple of rooms at a reasonably upmarket hotel, with one larger suite for him. With the most important feature that there is a 24 hour bar within walking distance, or a fairly late night bar.

    Also since we'd be flying down (only 2 in the group ride, and one's bikeless at the moment), reasonably close to city.

    Any ideas? Crown Casino is the one I'm thinking of at the moment.

    I also need a rough guide as to good places to go (bars, food, etc) which would be suitable for a bucks night.

    Plan is to fly in Friday night, warm up a little, then go hard on saturday.

    Still a long way away (it'll be Feb/March when it happens), but wanted to get a feel for what's out there now.

    Any help be much appreciated.
  2. ... and the supplementary charges for what might happen to the hotel room, and its envrions??

  3. try Riverside apartments (they also run Highlander).

    They are situated just over the river from crown and in the busy end of King street club venue area.
  4. Go with Crown. Classy rooms, great views, booze, sports, clubs and gambling on site, and it's only a short walk to King street where there are girls that take off their clothes without you even asking them to.

    Not that I'd know.
  5. If you stay at Crown, you'll be a stones throw from Friday night Southbank coffee. :D
  6. And I think you'll find there's a deer farm out at Healsville, but maybe that's too far from the cbd!
  7. Will do if I can swing it :)

    Long time away yet though.
