Melburnians Are Getting Four Epic Fridays Of Freebies, Special Drink Deals And Food Offers Across The CBD

Cocktails, doughnuts, and champagne will be given away as part of FOMO Fridays. But there’s so much more!

The FOMO Fridays initiative by the Victorian Government, the Property Council of Australia and the Australian Retailers Association aims to motivate CBD workers, students, and anyone else in the CBD on a Friday to stay around a little longer and to explore a little further by taking advantage of a whole raft of special drink deals and food offers. (Featured image: @jawis)

Beginning on 14 May and running through until 4 June, FOMO Fridays is bringing together bars, restaurants, retailers and shopping precincts with activations, experiences and shopping offers as well to help make the city the most exciting place to be in Victoria.


You’ll be able to get your FOMO on at Myer from 4-9pm at the Express Yourself mani bar and the Swiftly Stylish hair bar, where sweet treats will also be on hand to further entice you to stick around. If the line is too long, you can check out what’s happening at QV or head to The Strand or GPO where you’ll shop with bubbles in one hand, nibbles in the other and the thought that someone will pick up your shopping tab. For real!


Collins Square will be hosting workshops, food tastings and coffee experiences among a plethora of other activities for FOMO Fridays while Riverside Quay will be drawing crowds with music, roving entertainment and four $2,000 luxury escapes. Afraid you won’t win? Drown your worries with two-for-one sangria and beers on tap at Asado or $10 boozy hot chocolates at Ludlow Bar & Dining.

Food and Drink

Melburnians love a good feed just as much as a tipple or two, which is why as part of FOMO Fridays there are more than 40 bars and restaurants slashing prices on meals, giving discounts on drinks, and offering complimentary plates or bottles with your reservation. Many of these meal deals and drink specials are intended to be enjoyed by two or more, so make sure you grab a friend to make the most of what’s on in the city.

There are plenty of freebies up for grabs as well with doughnuts, topped-up Myki cards and dinner and drink giveaways happening as part of FOMO Fridays. To find out what’s being given away and when, you will need to keep an eye on the What’s On Melbourne Instagram page.
