Igloos are popping up at the Wharf Hotel this winter

Igloos are popping up at the Wharf Hotel this winter

Just because it doesn’t snow in Melbourne doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy an igloo this winter. Over on the banks of the Yarra, the Wharf Hotel has opened a pop-up igloo garden for you to enjoy until mid-September. Unlike their icy cousins, these antipodean igloos aren’t made of snow, but rather are transparent to best take advantage of those mint riverside views. Each igloo can fit four to seven people and comes packed with chairs, a low table and plenty of plush cushions and warm throws. Photograph: Supplied Booking an igloo will set you back $49 per person, which includes  your choice of beverage to share and either a fisherman’s basket or platter of Wharf Hotel favourites (such as buttermilk fried chicken and cheeseburger spring rolls). It’s not the first time igloos have come to town, with Auburn Hotel also setting up a icy wonderland for winter.   Want more icy treats? Pidapipo has launched a new range of gelato cakes. Or warm yourself up with a boozy hot Milo.

September at Drum Theatre

September at Drum Theatre

This September the Drum Theatre is gearing up for three gigs that'll have dads a-rockin'. Instead of getting your dad another pair of useless socks or a OTT lunch, you can give him the gift of live music. Get groovy on September 1 at the Australian Bee Gees Show, which will bring a visual and musical discotheque to life with some help from classic tracks by the Gibbs brothers. The show has been performed around the world for the past 20 years and is now coming to Dandenong direct from Vegas. Or you can catch Aussie rocker Ian Moss live in concert in acoustic mode on Friday, September 14. If it's more musical nostalgia you're after, then book tickets to the Bootleg Beatles on September 16. Direct from London, this world-class Beatles show will take audiences on a ride through the band's iconic back catalogue, including a special tribute to mark the 50th anniversary of the White album. These guys are the real deal, having performed across the world and even at Glastonbury Festival. Each concert will tap into all the hits your dad (and you) know and love, making for a memorable evening that's about enjoying the music, nostalgia and each other's company. Whether he's a disco dad, an Aussie rock die-hard or a Beatles fanatic, each of the evenings will offer up a one-off chance to celebrate at the Dandenong theatre.
