Bagel makers from 5 and Dime, Mile End Bagels, Bowery to Williamsburg and Au79 will come with their tried-and-tested bagel recipe, and the tastiest combination will take home the crown. No idea is off limits, as long as the bagel creation features Philly cream cheese! Who gets to decide the winning bagel? You do. Battle attendees will not only get to taste bagels from Melbourne’s top shops, they’ll also get to vote for their favourite.

Art Where to find Melbourne's best street art

When you think Melbourne, some of the words that come to mind surely must be 'coffee', 'laneways' and 'street art'. Street art covers almost every nook and cranny of our creative, colourful city, but there are more highly concentrated clusters than others. These are the street art hotspots that any self-respecting 'grammer should be snapping: the city's ten best street mural hotspots, in all their spray-painted laneway glory.

We should err on the side of caution when describing Williamstown as “greater Melbourne”. Not only will the locals love to tell you it’s only 20 minutes to the city (and no tolls!), but there’s a beach that’s accessible via public transport, a gorgeous pier to stroll down and stunning views towards the city and across Port Phillip Bay. As Melbourne's first seaport, Williamstown has swiftly developed into a trendy seaside suburb with a village feel. There are plenty of cafés and restaurants, you can hop on a bike and circle the water’s edge, or just find a quiet spot to sit and think about all the things you still have left to do.

Much Ado About Nothing

Zindzi Okenyo will finally be front and centre where she belongs when she stars as the whip-smart Beatrice in Bell Shakespeare’s new production of Much Ado About Nothing. In case you missed reading it at school, Much Ado is pretty much the original romantic comedy, and features one of Shakespeare’s most-loved couples, Beatrice and Benedick, who banter and swap barbs until their friends decide to bring them together. Don’t expect it to be all hearts and flowers though – Bell Shakespeare associate director James Evans promises to bring out the play’s darker conflicts as well, in particular the female characters’ struggle for identity and self-knowledge in a male-dominated world. "The story flips from uproarious comedy to utter heartbreak in an instant, and then back again. That is the genius of Shakespeare, and why this play is one of my favourites,” he says. Sparring with Okenyo as Benedick will be Duncan Ragg (The Dance of Death), alongside Mandy Bishop, Will McDonald, Vivienne Awosoga, Danny Ball, Marissa Bennet, Suzanne Pereira, Paul Reichstein and David Whitney.

It’s safe to say that Melbourne is a city obsessed with eating and drinking. After our morning coffee, we're already thinking about where to have lunch, and right after that lunch, our minds turn to where we might head to for dinner. The city’s hospo crews certainly have their work cut out for them, but a new, collaborative coworking hub is helping give Melbourne’s culinary pros the space to stretch their wings.  Worksmith has opened a fresh coworking space located at Ella – the new entertainment and dining precinct on the corner of Elizabeth and La Trobe streets (Elizabeth plus La Trobe equals Ella). After successfully opening its first coworking space in Collingwood, the industry professionals behind Worksmith launched the CBD outpost in June, and the community there is thriving. Just like the original Collingwood hub, Worksmith Ella is a space where those working in the hospitality industry can build and grow their latest projects and collaborate with like-minded professionals. Plus, to celebrate Worksmith’s official launch party at Ella, Time Out has teamed up with them for an exclusive industry offer.  Until September 30, Time Out readers who are in the food, beverage and hospitality industries can score a free month-long membership to Worksmith Ella or Collingwood (whichever suits you best).

Rainbow Chan

Art-pop vocalist and producer Rainbow Chan is touring this August, serenading audiences up and down the East Coast with her beguiling brand of electro-pop. The multi-talented musician and visual artist is playing a string of shows in support of her recently released album Pillar. The record follows 2016’s Spacings, which was nominated for several awards, and 2017 single ‘Let Me’, which earned a SMAC trophy for Best Song of the Year.  Chan has performed everywhere from the Sydney Opera House to the 2019 Time Out Bar Awards, but if you’ve never heard her music, expect soulful melodies, glitchy beats and intelligent lyrics, often dealing with themes of culture and identity (Chan was born in Hong Kong and raised in Australia). Whereas Spacings was sweetly melancholy in tone, this album promises a more upbeat attitude and vibrant aesthetic, still delivered with her signature ethereal vocals and tight production. Rainbow Chan will be performing at Melbourne CBD's Horse Bazaar on August 17. Tickets are available now.  Check out the Rainbow Chan website for more information, ticket links and special guests.

Score a footy lover’s feast every MCG match day at the Cliveden
Things to do Score a footy lover’s feast every MCG match day at the Cliveden

There’s no escaping the fact that in Melbourne the footy season means winter, and winter means cold, blustery days at the MCG. But locals embrace the chilly match days with gusto, rugged up in footy scarves and half-heartedly eating soggy yet scaldingly hot meat pies. As it turns out though, your match day dining need not be restricted to overpriced, oversalted tuckshop food.  Just over the road from the MCG lies the Pullman Hotel, and boy does its restaurant and bar know how to whip up a footy lovers' feast. Every day that there’s a game on at the ‘G, in-house bar and restaurant the Cliveden hosts a feast that’s perfect for fueling up pre or post-match.  You’ll want to loosen your belt a few notches before you get started on this mighty menu created by executive chef David Albert. The Cliveden's winter feast features gourmet sausages, grilled chicken thighs, slow-cooked meatballs with passata and a roast beef carvery complete with homemade gravy, mustards and condiments. Footy fans on their way to or from a match at the 'G will also get plenty of sides, including jacket potato wedges, freshly baked rolls (plus herb and garlic bread), three types of soups and new potato salad. There’s even something for the footy-loving veggo with a vegetarian pasta and pizza (you can also grab a slice of supreme or pepperoni pizza too). And just like at the MCG, the Cliveden offers fresh doughnuts (jam-filled or iced) as a sweet snack. The footy lover’s feast at the Cliveden Bar and Dini

Things to do Become a master mixologist in seven days with these seven Ableforth’s cocktails

When you’ve been sipping the freshest spirits and most inventive cocktails for a few years (guilty) you develop a discerning taste. Ableforth’s understands your distilled standards, and they’ve developed a range of spirits to match. Those seeking savoury, complex and adaptable flavour profiles should investigate Ableforth’s Bathtub Gin. It’s painstakingly prepared, first through a copper-pot distillation with the juniper base and other fragrant botanicals. Then a minimum seven-day infusion of zesty orange, spicy-sweet cassia, citrussy coriander seed, warming cardamom and cloves are gently introduced to the gin, and each of these flavours shines through abundantly in the bottled beverage.  It takes no less than seven carefully monitored days to eke every bit of distinctive flavour out of these fresh ingredients. In between shifts, the Ableforth’s mixologists have developed seven cocktail recipes – one to suit your mood, no matter what day of the week it is – that make the most out of their prize concoctions.  Photograph: Piers Cunliffe Make Monday classy with a Negroni. It’s a simple but effective combination of equal parts Bathtub Gin, Campari and sweet vermouth stirred over ice and served with orange peel zest.  After a hectic Tuesday, shake together Ableforth’s Bathtub Gin, a dash of sugar syrup, fresh lemon juice and mint leaves and you’ve got yourself a snazzing Southside.
