It’s your last chance to experience the European Night Market in Melbourne tonight

All your roommates on their Euro summer tour? This market (might) be the next best thing. 

Mouthwatering German sausages, delectable pierogi, gooey raclette, heavenly crepes … where do I sign up? Tonight, July 28, Madame Brussels’ famous European night market is hosting its final stint for the year, kicking off at 5pm.

Stay up to date with what’s happening in and around Melbourne here.

You won’t be able to resist paella’s irresistible aroma, and so much more awaits to be discovered. And what’s a winter feast without warm mulled wine and bespoke gin cocktails from Little Lon to drown out the sorrows of not being on a beach on the Amalfi Coast?

There’s also set to be heaps of activities and roaming performers as well. The German Trio Band will have you dancing in the alleys, while stilt performers, ballerinas, and the quirky German Papa Gluck will grace the lanes with their charismatic acts.

For those committed to that coveted Duolingo streak, the Alliance Française Pop-Up is a must-visit. This cultural hub offers a diverse array of events, exhibitions, and talks that celebrate all things French, adding a touch of Parisian allure to the night.

Getting to the venue is a breeze, with Madame Brussels Lane conveniently located just a stone’s throw away from Parliament train station and a 2-minute walk from Parliament Square tram stop.

Home to a variety of popular cafes, a gin distillery, cobbler, barber, and more, Madame Brussels Lane is Melbourne’s hidden laneway gem.

It goes down tonight, Friday July 28. Find out more by heading here.
