Get on The Deck this summer


A classic Aussie deck is about as good as it gets. Thinking back to all your barbecues, birthdays and bachelor parties on that bad boy strikes a nostalgic chord, until you remember how much of a mission cleaning up the next morning was after a Berocca and a slice of pizza off the floor. And how did the couch end up out there?

To save getting in trouble all over again, take your party to The Deck WV… the deck that’s not technically yours, but feels just like home (after winning a few hundred bucks on the pokies and spending it on new decor, dragon dancers and boozy bubble tea).

West End’s West Village is opening their decked out deck to the public with a couple of epic introductory events this February to help you settle in.

Heroeing neighbouring eateries from The Garden Pantry, The Deck will kick things off with an epic Lunar New Year party with plenty o’ bao from Mr. Bunz, and transform into a Sunday sesh off the Amalfi Coast thanks to Salt Meats Cheese (cue cheese wheel pasta excitement).

Each event will be decorated thoroughly to the theme, with likes of fortune cookie baskets, event-appropriate grazing boards, and pop up bars with all the bubble tea cocktails you can responsibly handle.

Start planning your sesh with more info and dates for Mr. Bunz Lunar New Year here, and the Salt Meats Cheese Bottomless Amalfi Sunday here.

Deck the halls with casks of beer and fi-i-i-i-ind me at the bar.
