With Father’s Day coming up quickly (Sunday, September 4), it’s time to start thinking about ways you can show your dad how much you truly appreciate him.
There are plenty of wonderful ways to spoil dad in Brighton this year, and Church Street provides a vibrant and scenic setting to enjoy a springtime Sunday with dad.
With experiences at the top of our Father’s Day gift list this year, here are some ways to make it a memorable day for Dad.
1. Have a sit-down lunch
Enjoy a hearty meal with dad at White Rabbit Restaurant, where you’ll find diverse dishes like Irish breakfast, leek pancake with ocean trout, lamb shank risotto and a whopper burger packed with flavour. Sit inside and admire the vintage dining room or, if the weather is good, choose the outdoor tables.
2. Catch up with a coffee
For a catch-up over a coffee, treat dad to one of Brighton’s excellent cafes. Cafe Florentine offers a modern and stylish setting with a selection of Australian foodie favourites, Track Three Espresso is ideal for the laid-back types, and Brighton Schoolhouse is the perfect environment for families with children.
3. An exceptional cinematic experience
If you’re looking to treat dad to a movie experience that offers comfort, class and intimacy then look no further than Palace Cinemas Dendy Brighton. The luxurious cinema has a great reputation for a cosy and friendly experience, with a fully-licenced wine bar and a range of food and drink options available to make a visit to the flicks that extra bit special.
4. Stroll along our celebrated shores
Spend some time at Brighton Beach and check out the iconic Brighton Beach Bathing Boxes. This historical attraction has been maintained for more than 100 years and provides a colourful backdrop for a walk and quality time with dad.
5. Grab an after-dinner drink
Shout dad a drink at the local watering hole. Half Moon is a hip pub on Church Street, with a timber bar and rustic-chic décor. After dark, café Pera transforms into a sultry wine bar fit for a sophisticated drink or two. Kick back, choose from an impressive menu of premium spirits, wines and cocktails and enjoy the intimate ambience of this venue.
