Melbourne's CBD is chock-full of arcades and mini golf venues, so it's about time that the northside got its very own late-night games spot. Enter What the Putt, a massive games centre that landed in Brunswick in 2021. It's open until midnight most days, so it's perfect for an after-dinner date, post-work hang or catch-up with friends. Inside, you'll find heaps of activities designed for fun and some friendly competition. Practice your short game on the 18-hole mini golf course that's chock-full of horror props, quirky obstacles and pop culture references, all illuminated by neon signs.
Not quite ready to tackle the big holes yet? Rather not spend the better part of your day on the green? That's OK – putt your way through these miniature courses instead. Mini golf is like regular golf's goofy younger sibling, with punny and themed holes, quirky obstacles and pumping tunes. Many of these venues also feature arcades and well-stocked bars, so the fun doesn't stop once you've played through your round.
