WIN WITH LUXE: A 2-NIGHT STAY AT THE CULLEN IN MELBOURNE 
Sure, flashy sister Sydney might have landed the beach babe and archi-star genes, but demure sophisticate Melbourne is all about what’s beneath the surface, with her buzzy hidden laneways, laid-back vibe, fantastic food and funky bars, not to mention a sass and style all of her own. This month, we’re giving one lovely LUXE reader a two-night stay at artsy enclave The Cullen, and a chance to experience all that Oz’s culture capital has to offer. On your marks, get set, espresso!

Part of the boutique Art Series hotel collection, The Cullen is a bold, pied-a-terre homage to famed Aussie artist Adam Cullen, whose street art-inspired paintings adorn each suite and bring a punch of colour to the otherwise cool monochrome palette. Simply add stunning cityscape vistas, kitchenettes, king-sized sleepers, designer desks and flopsome sofas and you have the city’s sauciest stay. Luckily for serious shopportunists, the hotel is but a stiletto’s toss from Chapel Street’s roll call of independent Oz and international brands. And since restocking the fash stash is hungry work indeed, retailistas would do well to hotfoot it back to The Cullen’s atrium post spree for mod American eats at Gramercy Bistro & Bar, or delish duck and dumplings at Sino supper HuTong.
Melbourne is blissfully flat and walkable, but with so many fab neighbourhoods to explore why not pick up the pace via a complimentary half-day Lekker bicycle hire, or even get behind the wheel of one of the hotel’s rentable Smart cars? You can zip to all of the top picks in our brand spanking new LUXE Melbourne Guide (LINK), simply bursting with fabulous restaurants, slinky sip spots, top shops and sigh-worthy spas. Strewth! Whatta deal. Enter now!

Singapore Restaurants – Potato Head Folk

blaaaaaaaaah

Nary a Mr. Potato in sight

It’s worth a visit to Singapore’s iconic Chinatown for top-notch dim sum and Instagram-worthy heritage alone, but for something decidedly more mod, leg it quicksticks to the quirk-chic Potato Head Folk. The uber hip, Jakarta-imported burger-cum-cocktail joint occupies a four-storey Art Deco building popping with colourful bird and butterfly motifs (courtesy of Aus artist David Bromley), and jumbles of mismatched vintage furniture. And that’s only the eye-candy…
