Hot stuff on a cold night

The Queen Vic's Winter Night Market might just be the hottest place to be this winter.
It is on every Wednesday night from from 3 June – 26 August and it is well worth putting on your warm jacket and heading on down.
It is certainly a unique and truly memorable Melbourne experience.
Tasty satays, huge woks of bright yellow paella with protruding succulent mussels. You can experience mushroom burgers from the Little Mushroom Co, Texan food at Bluebonnet Barbecue, and smoky wonders from Burn City Smokers. Their smoke adds to atmosphere.
There is Indian food from AutoRickshaw and the famous 400 Gradi with a newly created pizza flavour just for the Winter Market.
There are also hot drinks galore, including hot cider from Those Girls and heaps of craft beers.
There is also a new Cheese & Wine Bar where you can enjoy a glass of red and a platter of gorgeous cheeses. This is right next to another new attraction, the Night Market Cinema which will be showing short films.
This is also a craft inspired market with some really interesting finds. Japanese textiles from Itai Kimono, candles, sterling silver, beaded and wood jewellery and some classic homewares from Drunk on Water,
There is a huge line-up of roving entertainers including stilt walkers, puppet shows and one-man-band Uptown Brown amongst others.
