Luckie Guides are a guide-book alternative for savvy locals and discerning travellers who want the low-down on the best destinations in the city without having to carry an encyclopaedia-size book around. Luckie Guides come in a pack of cards - small enough to live in your day bag, but perfect for selecting just a few cards to slip into a jacket pocket before you hit the streets. In the words of Australia’s favourite son Baz Luhrmann “the best thing is all the small bars. You can pick up a pack of cards and each card has a small bar on the back. Go to as many as you can before you fall over.”
Many travel guides aim to be as comprehensive as possible, but Luckie Guides go the opposite way. Put together by passionate locals who scour the city for authentic and excellent experiences, Luckie Guides recognise that you want the tools to start exploring a destination quickly and with confidence, as well as getting a sense of what makes a place special.
Melbourne The Wine Bar Guide:
Following Melbourne’s reinventing and conquering of coffee, brunch and cocktails, we're now witnessing the sprouting of slick neighbourhood wine bars. Serving the community for any day of the week after work aperitifs, to try a glass and buy a bottle on the way home or make a night of it. Many of our wine bars have the kitchen chops to go entree to entree with the city's best restaurants.
Melbourne The Craft Beer Guide:
An informative and accessible guide to 52 of the best places to discover and experience craft beer, featuring specialty craft beer pubs, dedicated craft beer bars, urban breweries and even a sustainable craft beer pizzeria. Craft beer is becoming ubiquitous, and these are the venues leading the charge, informing, educating and exciting drinkers on the breadth of styles and flavour profiles that beer encompasses. Following their lead, expect to see most venues with a liquor license introduce a craft beer offering in the coming years. Australia now has over 400 breweries, a massive and rapid evolution from the five main breweries that dominated the 20th century. The majority of the population lives within 10kms of a brewery, and many of us have our pick of several on our doorstep. And the industry is just warming up.
