We all know your dad’s not just a regular dad, he’s a cool dad – bad jokes and all. Whether he's more into fashion than football, has chewed your ear off about his favourite bands or is just your typical pun loving daggy dad – this Father’s Day, embrace his hobbies with the perfect day!
Wander through the Valley and you'll discover the perfect places to treat Dad this Father's Day.
Does dad have better taste in music than you? Show him you were listening through all those years and pick him up something special to spin from Phase 4 Records. This Bakery Lane record store is packed with everything from vintage Pink Floyd to new releases.
If your old man knows his league from his union, is still sleep deprived from the World Cup and can tell you the line up from every State of Origin – you’ve got yourself one sporty dad. Luckily the Valley has some of the best spots to pull up a seat and sit down to a pint and parmy to watch all the big games live.
Buying for the dad who always looks impossibly groomed and puts your style to shame can be one tricky ask – but it’s not impossible! Treat him to a fresh haircut and shave from the super hip Crown & Co Barbers on Brunswick Street before wandering over to Universal Store for a new shirt, or trendy Matt Blatt to pick up something for home.
Piccolos, Picasso and pilsner – dad’s a fan of all of them. Show him you inherited his good taste by spending the day gallery, bar and café hopping around the Valley. Grab specialty coffee from Reverends or Smoked Garage (just hope he doesn’t try and buy a motorcycle – hello midlife crisis?), browse the Jan Murphy Gallery and then finish with a cheeky craft beer from Bloodhound Bar or The Elephant.
Make his day, no matter what kind of dad he is.
