Festival of Steve May 13 2014, 0 Comments

Having done good by their mums, Melbourne's men are in for a treat on 24 May when the Festival of Steve returns to that most friendly of gentlemen's clubs, the Kelvin Club. 

Tucked down the end of Melbourne Pl near the corner of Russell & Lt Collins Sts, the Kelvin Club is resplendent in wood-panelling, leather club lounges, billiards tables, dim lighting and a sense of secret society. Most inclusively, women are welcome too. 

On 24 May, Melbourne's independent retailers will take over the joint for a men's shopping event focused on fashion, quality local goods, grooming, music and informative lectures on how to win at billiards, work a poker face, and taste the past while drinking scotch whisky. ARIA-nominated Jason Walker will perform, Carl Nave will advise how to select the right suit, and V&J Menswear will survey styling and grooming through the ages. 

Melbournalia gents Dale Campisi and Michael Brady will be there with a specially curated men's edit of local goods, including new scarves, ties and beanies from Otto & Spike; shoelaces by Mavericks; and must-have books from Hardie Grant, Arcade and Thames & Hudson. Plus free tips on where else to eat, drink and shop around town.
