How to make the most of winter in Elsternwick Village

If you think the cooler months are all about staying indoors snuggled under a blanket, think again!

During winter, Elsternwick Village comes alive with shopping, lifestyle and entertainment options to get you off the couch and out enjoying life.

This winter things are really heating up in Elsternwick Village – here’s our pick of the best winter activities.

Update your winter wardrobe

New seasons bring with them new fashion trends to embrace; new styles to make your own – and cooler weather means more to try!

Try out all the new winter styles at Elsternwick Village’s fashion stores like Givoni, Perugia Ladies Clothing, Sussan and Urban Soul, and add some vintage flair by teaming with pieces from Recycled Designer Labels.

Update your look by simply swapping out your winter accessories – shoes, hats, gloves, coats and scarves – with the latest trends.

Gents, don’t get left behind! Update your wardrobe with some new-season pieces from Mitchell McCabe Menswear and Hattams Menswear.

Embrace winter menus and comfort food

Every new season brings with it a new range of delicious foods, that the highly acclaimed chefs at Elsternwick Village embrace with creativity and flair, developing new, mouth-watering menus to enjoy.

Sample the wonderful new winter dishes at Bang Bang, Bistro GOEMON, and Farang Farang – or just put some wow into your weekend brunch at Mothers Instinct Eatery or Damm Good Cafe.

Winter produce makes up our favourite comfort foods: nourishing soups, creamy pasta sauces, and thick, hearty stews, and Elsternwick Village’s fresh food stores are brimming with the freshest, most delicious ingredients you’ll need to cook up a storm at home.

Boost your health this winter with nutrient-packed ingredients from Perfect Pantry and Glo Health, and pick up all your essential foods at Coles or Kosher Kingdom.

Enjoy indoor entertainment

During winter, entertainment goes indoors, and there’s plenty of fun to be had at Elsternwick Village.

Winter activities guaranteed to boost your happiness are those where you try your hand at something new! Harness the artist you always knew was inside you by taking a pottery wheel class at Ceramiques, or putting paint to canvas over a glass or two of wine at UpVibes Paint & Sip Studio.

Fancy learning a time-honoured art that is also practical and will save you money? How about a sewing class at Sew This Pattern.

Keeping fit is also synonymous with keeping warm, so this winter up your fitness game by trying a new gym, or just a new class, or turn up the heat with a hot yoga class at Yoga Tree.

You could also wander over to Avenue Bookstore to find the latest page-turner and curl up on the couch at home – complete with a blanket and glass of wine – to enjoy an evening of reading. Bliss!

Go bar hopping

As the evenings get cooler, warm your body and your soul with a drink at one of Elsternwick Village’s bars. They’re quirky and stylish but always welcoming, and with so many to choose from, you can try a new one every week!

Bit of a wine buff? Head to Upstairs Cellar and sample the latest drops over a cheeseboard. Alternatively, sink into a stylish sofa and work your way through the cocktail list at Antique Bar.

If you have a celebration in mind or if a romantic night is long overdue, book a table at Copycat Bar and Restaurant and be spoiled by the stunning interiors, beautiful food, and sophisticated drinks.

For a fuss-free evening, head to Goat House, grab a glass of wine and sit near their fireplace for complete winter vibes in a relaxed setting.

Have a cosy night at the cinema

There are casual trips to the movies, then there are cinema experiences. And there is no place that delivers like Classic Cinemas.

Steeped in history, and luxuriously decorated, a winter night at Classic Cinemas is that little bit more special.

Whether you’re taking in a black and white Hollywood classic, or the latest blockbuster, everything about Classic Cinemas is fancy – even the food! Yes, the cinema has popcorn, choc-tops, soft drinks and coffee, but did you know, their cinema snacks also include cheese platters, gourmet toasties, and a range of delicious baked goods?

In winter, the cinema also offers sangria, mulled wine, a range of warm ciders, as well as a selection of classic cocktails. Now, that’s one way to enjoy a cosy night out during the winter!

Elsternwick Village comes alive in winter with food and drinks to warm your body, entertainment and winter activities to warm your spirit, and a vibrant and creative atmosphere that inspires and delights.
