The best ways to celebrate Game of Thrones in Melbourne

  • Jul 14, 2017

It’s here! Finally! Game of Thrones season seven premiers on July 17, and the whole world is losing its collective mind.

We’ve had our teaser trailers but it’s time to sink our teeth into the real thing. So how can you join the party?

Fortunately, there’s a variety of ways to get your GoT on in Melbourne. We’re talking GoT-themed baked goods, public screenings and even a Snapchat filter.

Check them out below!

Covered in dragon eggs (and filled with caramel), Doughnut Time’s Game of Thrones tribute, Doughnereys, is a fitting tribute to the mother of dragons.

It’s only going to be around for a limited time from Friday. Doughnut Time is located at 5 Degraves Street, Melbourne, QV, 377 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy, and 178 Chapel Street, Windsor.

Mister Nice Guy’s Bakeshop in Ascot Vale is going full GoT this Sunday, creating a full menu inspired by the show.

Jon Snow, Kingslayer, Tyrian, Daenerys and her dragons will be turned into cupcakes, while the White Walke’s will feature in pop-rock blue heaven shakes.

You can also get your hands on The Red Keep Cherry Ripe shakes, bloody jam-filled bronuts and sweet and savoury Game of Scones.

Best part? It’s a vegan bakery! Yup. All vegan, baby. All the time.

Get snappy happy

This is probably as close as you’re going to get to being a part of the actual show, unless you know where Kit Harington lives.

HBO has released a limited edition Game of Thrones snapchat filter, in which you can transform yourself into a White Walker.

You can also use the front camera to ‘kill’ a White Walker with a dragonglass dagger, just like our main man Samwell Tarley.

If you’re on a computer, unlock it by taking a photo in Snapchat of ghost above.

It only works for one hour!

Want to watch the premiere with a bunch of like-minded GoT lovers?

We’ve found two viewing parties – one on either side of the river.

South-siders can get down to Bay City Burrito‘s St Kilda outlet (4 Shakespeare Grove) to watch the premiere.

There will be drink and food specials to be held on the night.

Bookings are suggested if you want the better seats!

North of the river, the party keeps continues.

Head to Mollie’s Bar and Diner in Fitzroy (103 – 105 Smith Street) where they’ll be showing the premiere across three screens.

Better yet, you can head back every Monday as they’ll be holding a screening every week.
