Melbourne: Where to watch the Australian Open in style this January

QT Melbourne 1

It’s January and that means tennis season in Australia, with millions of tourists, tennis lovers and superstars flocking into town despite the worst ever bushfire season Australia is enduring at the moment (donate to relief funds here). But if crowds and blistering outdoor heat isn’t your thing, then perhaps a chill session at the QT Melbourne might suffice. The hotel’s popular dining destinations are the place to see and be seen pre, during and post-match, thanks in large part to a collaboration with Aperol Spritz this summer. The Russell Street lobby to The Rooftop will come alive thanks to the work of Cake Shop, which will transform into a country club in the city, featuring green turf and white furniture and serving Aperol Spritz exclusively.  Meanwhile on level 11, The Rooftop at QT will embrace the Australian Open spirit with a life-size bright orange tennis court installed next to the bar. Guests will have the chance to win their very own Grand Slam, with Nintendo Wiis fixed to the screens for virtual matches.  For more of what’s on and how you can benefit, head to the QT Hotel website.
