Well, the winter of 2016 has been a really cold one down-under. The cold can be a deterrent for leaving the house and heading off to the theatre, so we put together five things you can do to have a warm night out.

  1. In PERTH? If you’re going to the The Blue Room Theatre, why not snuggle up at the bar and get yourself a beer and toastie. Guaranteed to keep you warm with its ooey goodness, the toastie is where it’s at on a cold winter’s night. As an added bonus, you can bring your drinks into the theatre with you…now that’s clever thinking!
  2. If your scene is MELBOURNE, a cheeky wine or two at the Arts Centre is good, but once you’ve finished, why not line up at Lord of the Fries at Flinders Street Station for some hot chips? Mmm, what’s better than watching the steam rise off of hot potatoey yumminess?
  3. How about SYDNEY? There’s a great theatre in Darlinghurst these days, so why not warm up at a traditional pub first? The Local Taphouse on Flinders Street has an awesome selection of craft beers to be enjoyed in an old European style restaurant. Going to the theatre on a Sunday? Check out their Traditional Sunday Roast – complete with Yorkshire pudding and lashings of gravy.
  4. Heading to QUEENSLAND? Either before or after heading to the Queensland Performing Arts Centre, why not take a brisk winter stroll to Stokehouse? They offer awesome warm drinks including a Sunday special: Hot Buttered Rum, made with kraken spiced rum, spiced butter, and brown sugar. Heavenly!
  5. Need a winter warmer in ADELAIDE? Located conveniently next to the Box Office in the Adelaide Festival Centre the Foyer Cafe offers decadent coffees, teas and warm drinks at least two hours before a show. I couldn’t think of anything better than a creamy hot chocolate to warm me up from the inside out!
