Live your fanciest life when a lobster and Champagne pop-up restaurant opens in Melbourne next week

There's nothing wrong with treating yourself to a super-fancy meal from time to time; but what if you don't have the funds to back up your luxe lifestyle? 

Friends, welcome to Lobster Shack. In October this year, this pop-up lobster and Champagne restaurant opened in Sydney, serving brioche rolls filled with fresh, wild-caught Clearwater Maine lobster tail, slow-cooked in a butter bath and served with buttermilk slaw. Insanely, these babies were just $35 – and that included a side of parmesan truffle fries. 

On Thursday November 30, Lobster Shack is coming to Melbourne, with exactly the same delicious deal. For $50, you'll also get a glass of Veuve Clicquot. The kicker: the pop-up will be in the Arts Centre Melbourne forecourt, so you could pair your seafood snack and bubbles with a show. If there's a better way to spend a warm summer evening, we're yet to hear about it. 

Lobster Shack runs at Arts Centre Melbourne from November 30-December 22, noon-9pm (or until sold out).
