Melbourne SinglesFor Night Owls
To kick off a long night of dancing, dress to impress and head up to The Deck, an all-weather bar atop the Waterside Hotel. On Fridays there is a gourmet BBQ from 5.30pm followed by dancing and cocktails. If you find that you’re hitting it off and don’t want the night to end, change the pace by heading for late night (or early morning) snacks. Bar Ampere and Boiler Maker House both take orders till 3am, so if all that dancing brought on a craving for a charcuterie plate or gruyere burger, you know where to go.For Art Aficionados
At the Heide Museum of Modern Art there are bound to be plenty of talking points. There are three exhibition spaces, a sculpture park and cafe, and if conversation falters you may be able to ignite the senses in the two historic kitchen gardens. For a wilder art experience, head into the back alleys and side streets of the city to discover the street art. Discover art off Flinders Lane between Russell and Swanston Streets, Union Lane off the Bourke Street Mall and Blender Lane off Franklin Street.For Nature Lovers
Zoo Twilights offers Melbourne singles a grown up trip to the zoo with a romantic feel.

For night-time wildlife spotting with a hint of uncertainty you could take your partner to the Royal Botanical Gardens after dark and cosy up to wait for a glimpse of the owls who sometimes glide by.
