There is a graph somewhere in the universe that places all people in Melbourne on a spectrum. At one end of the spectrum is people who love the city for a lazy lunch, cheeky drink or just generally doing very little while consuming delicious calories to their hearts content. At the other end is the people who love to move and explore. Probably wearing sensible shoes with arch support, these people adore bubble soccer, know to the block the nearest rock climbing centre, and always book a hotel with a gym. If, like me, you sit somewhere in the middle, Melbourne has blessed us with the perfect spot to have a cocktail in one hand, and some kind of sporting accessory in the other – enter Holey Moley Mini Golf Bar.
After gleefully donning your visor, enter a clash of pop culture and twee knick knacks and enjoy 27 themed courses, such as Game of Thrones and The Simpsons, while replacing your hard earned calorie deficit (Golf is a sport, right?) on cocktails like Happy Gilmoreo (Chambord raspberry liqueur, Smirnoff Red Vodka, Baileys, milk, chocolate sauce, crushed Oreos with a whipped cream topping) and woodfired pizza.
Holey Moley is more about luck than skill, making it an ideal spot for groups looking for a fun, memorable time with no beat downs from Todd in HR who golfs every weekend with his Dad. Kids are welcome before 5pm, and should you be wanting more than a chip and a drink, enjoy kareoke and a low fi games room to continue the fun.
Find Holey Moley at 590 Little Bourke Street, Melbourne 3000.
