Supper Safari in Melbourne: three venues, one night

Last week, I had the fortunate opportunity of experiencing The Publican Group's Supper Safari.  The name is fun and so is a night that includes cocktails, bubbly, tapas, a two course meal and wine, across three venues in Melbourne CBD.

Tapas and bubbles
Crème Brulee
Your Supper Safari itinerary begins at Terra Rossa on Flinders Lane for a glass of sparkling and tapas.  I quite like the space at Terra Rossa, it's intimate enough where it needs to be but also suitable for a social setting and group events - like a Supper Safari.  The space is warm, cosy and comfortable.  Perfect for winter.  

Two course meal with wine
Next stop is the lovely, French inspired Mr Mason on Collins Street.  A Francophile at heart, I was excited to finally head here for the first time.  Just as it should be, the French influence at Mr Mason is subtle and understated.  This part of your Supper Safari offers a two course meal (main and dessert) matched with a glass of red or white wine (French, of course).  I opted for the duck and I've been craving it ever since.  As for mashed potato with liver parfait?  Yumtastic.  They chose to steer clear of using foie gras because, let's face it, it's just plain cruel (but cruelly delicious).  My glass of Beaujolais went down a treat as did the fireplace behind our table keeping us toasty warm.  The dessert was an array of sweet treats from chocolate soufflé to lemon tart, and I didn't hear anyone complaining at all - besides how full they were.  We waddled out to head to our next stop.

Campari House, on our infamous Hardware Lane, is four levels of food and drink.  At your final Supper Safari stop, indulge in a specially designed cocktail in a private booth in the lounge, then choose to continue your night from there perhaps with a few more on the rooftop upstairs.

In transit
The three venues on the Supper Safari are a comfortable 10-15 minute walk between each so if you're partial to heels like I am, or just not up for the walk, I'd suggest a taxi or enquire about their upgrade options like limos (swanky).  There are a range of other upgrades too like pre-paid bar tabs, cheese platters, and sparkling wine in your limo.

All in all
Personally, I like a bit of variety in one night.  Supper Safari is a nice balance of this with no waiting in lines, choosing where to go on the night, or scheduling several bookings.  At $95pp it's a good idea for special events, hens parties or birthdays, or a different way to show visitors around our city with all the work done for you.
