Where Melbourne - - Contents - By Nik Adams

THE THIRD AN­NUAL Vic­to­rian Les Clefs d’or Hos­pi­tal­ity Scavenger Hunt was held this month at the Pull­man Mel­bourne on the Park. This year, we had a record 25 teams par­tic­i­pat­ing in the event. Start­ing at the Pull­man Mel­bourne on the Park, the teams ran around Mel­bourne learn­ing about the sport­ing dis­trict and Fitzroy Gar­dens area, which made for some in­ter­est­ing photos! This year’s teams went all out on dress­ing up and we had pi­rates, mad doc­tors, Lego pieces and Super Mario Bros. The over­all win­ner was the team from Hertz with an out­stand­ing score. We look for­ward to ar­rang­ing next year’s event, which will be even big­ger.

We were in­vited to sam­ple the fa­mous high tea at The Ho­tel Wind­sor by Vic­to­rian mem­ber Ali Sungkar. A re­lax­ing af­ter­noon was spent sip­ping on cham­pagne and sam­pling var­i­ous cakes and scones. A true icon of Mel­bourne, it was great to en­joy the classic at­mos­phere of The Ho­tel Wind­sor. A re­fined af­ter­noon with some re­fined gen­tle­men!

Red Spice Road cel­e­brated its 10-year an­niver­sary re­cently and in­vited the concierge com­mu­nity to come along and help them mark the oc­ca­sion. Ex­ec­u­tive chef John Mcleay pro­vided a sam­ple of their de­li­cious South East Asian menu. Plenty of spice en­sured a fun night was had by all.

Saké Restau­rant and Bar Flin­ders Lane and Saké Restau­rant and Bar Hamer Hall in­vited the concierge to dine at both their restau­rants. The con­tem­po­rary Ja­panese sam­ple plate menu was a treat to try. With plenty of fresh takes on Ja­panese food, it is well rec­om­mended. Both restau­rants are very mod­ern and sleek, and bring so­phis­ti­cated din­ing to both ar­eas of Mel­bourne.
