Fan of a good whisky? Of all the unique experiences Melbourne offers up, sampling the wares of Australian whisky heavyweights Starward is a fantastic way to start off an evening out in Melbourne. Nestled in the Windsor Workshop on the iconic Chapel St, Starward’s whisky masterclass will guide you through three variants of whisky while you enjoy complimentary nibbles carefully selected to be paired with the whisky on display. This is one of the top birthday party ideas for a gentleman who considers himself a connoisseur of the dark spirits, and a fun way to learn more about the art of making whisky.
Being on the famous Chapel St, enjoying the rest of your evening is in easy walking distance. Starward’s masterclass only runs on Thursday nights, and just up the road, bar Attik runs a comedy night that’s perfect for kick-ons. As far as birthday experiences in Melbourne go, this is a lovely twist on the “dinner and a show” classic. Otherwise, head to the Temperance Hotel for a DIY Tacos and Nachos night to finish off!
