Think pine trees, sheepskins and daggy ski jumpers
Like the 'après' bit of skiing more than actually hitting the slopes? Then you'll love 'Mont Plonk', a pop up bar which has just opened at Melbourne Public, at South Wharf. You can bypass all the effort and cost of having to drive to the ski fields, buy your lift pass, hire the equipment etc and go straight to a warm, cosy bar, and order some special drinks to warm body and soul, including alcoholic hot chocolate and spiced rum-injected mulled wine.

Mont Plonk Pop Up Bar, South Wharf
Mont Plonk has been adorned with sheepskins, pine trees and fireplaces to give an authentic apres ski experience

The outside terrace of Melbourne Public has been decorated to transport you to the perfect après-ski location. Think pine trees, fireplaces and seats draped with cosy sheepskins, blankets and cushions (as well as good heaters!).

Admission to the bar is free. You are encouraged to dig out your best (or worst!) ski jumper and get into the fun spirit of the Mont Plonk bar.

If you are keen on getting the full Mont Plonk experience, there are group ski pass packages available for Thursdays to Saturdays, suitable for groups of 4, 6, 8 or 10 people. These passes give you:

- a reserved table

- cheese fondue to share

- a bratwurst sausage each

- choice of alcoholic hot chocolate or hot toddy each, and

- 2 shots from the shot-ski each.

We saw a shot-ski and it looked wicked - magnetic plates set into a ski onto which special metallic based shot glasses are set. Your group lines up, tips the ski and voila! your shot has been delivered. Lots of fun.

The cost of the group ski passes is $50 per person.

Mont Plonk will be operating until Sunday 16th July, so make a date to enjoy some winter cheer. Mont Plonk at Melbourne Public is located at 11 Dukes Walk, South Wharf. Melbourne Public is open from 12 noon until late every day. Lunch and dinner are available and I can personally recommend the food.
