Holey Moley Golf Club

Part bar, part mini-golf kitsch, Holey Moley Golf Club is Little Bourke Street, Melbourne’s newest addition. The 27-hole course will see you navigate a Game of Thrones hole, a large-scale turntable, a Simpsons lounge and a Pac-Man with ghost obstacles.

Dreamt up by Fun Lab, the owner of Strike Bowling and Sky Zone Trampoline parks, the company’s CEO Michael Schreiber says the course will continue to evolve over time, while maintaining its tongue in cheek, colourful and pop culture vibe. Perfect for a girls day out.

This is one to add to the wish list: a trip to Japan to explore the whimsical Nacrée restaurant. Tucked into an industrial site, this eatery sees acrylic cylinders filled with globes suspended from the ceiling, while the ‘walls’ are formed from curves of more acrylic cylinders, decorated with acrylic flowers. The result is a space where the light is diffused and a sense of movement is prevalent… almost like a futuristic garden.
