How to spoil Dad this Father’s Day in Elsternwick Village

There was a time when Father’s Day prep was just a case of picking up a novelty cup from the Father’s Day stall at school (most likely emblazoned with the words World’s Best Father!) and handing it to him with a card you made in art class. Dad loved it, and we’d fulfilled our Father’s Day aspirations, and that was it.

As we become adults, many of us fathers ourselves, Father’s Day takes on greater significance. We want to spend time with Dad, share experiences, and let him know that we appreciate everything he does for us.

Elsternwick Village has everything you need to say ‘I love you, Dad’ this Father’s Day, from dining to drinking to sharing laughs and experiences. Here’s our top picks.

A dinner to remember

Elsternwick Village is home to some of the best restaurants Melbourne has to offer, but this Father’s Day don’t just take Dad to dinner – give him a dining experience.

Take your tastebuds to an exotic location by sampling a new global cuisine. Elsternwick Village’s vibrant, multicultural restaurant scene features choices from all around the world, including Middle Eastern, Asian, Italian, Hungarian, even Georgian (great for those who can’t decide between Middle Eastern and European cuisines).

Once you’ve landed on a cuisine, why not shake up the actual dining experience? Restaurants in Elsternwick Village offer a great range of dining options including fine dining, experiential dining, and plate sharing.

Share a drink

When Dad isn’t just your father but also your best friend, there’s no better way to celebrate Father’s Day than by sharing a drink and conversation at one of Elsternwick Village’s eclectic bars.

Sink yourselves into a comfy sofa at Antique Bar and start working your way through the cocktail list or sample the fine wine collection and a cheese platter at Upstairs Cellar. For the ultimate in sophistication, check out Copycat Bar and Restaurant.

If relaxed is more Dad’s vibe, grab a couple of bar stools at Bang Bang or the Caulfield RSL, which has all the warmth and familiarity of an old friend.

Quality time together

When was the last time you went out and had fun with Dad, just the two of you? If you have to count the years, then it’s too long!

Elsternwick Village has some awesome experiences to share with Dad this Father’s Day. You can work out together at one of Elsternwick Village’s great gyms or pamper yourselves with a massage at one of the salons.

If your father is a movie buff, grab some popcorn and spend an afternoon at the iconic Classic Cinemas.

If you want an experience that guarantees a laugh and a night you won’t soon forget, book in for an art class at UpVibes Paint & Sip Studio. You get to paint, you get to eat and drink, and you get to take home a great piece of art created by you!

Whatever activity you choose, Elsternwick Village has so many choices to spoil Dad with the gift he really treasures: quality time spent with you.
