The #BecauseNoReason Guide to Sydney & Melbourne

Wine comes out at engagement parties, beer comes out at sporting matches, but Chambord comes out #BecauseNoReason, and why shouldn’t it. We’re getting a little tired of having to wait for a reason to celebrate, go on adventures, and try new things. So is Chambord. So we thought we’d bring you a guide to things to do in our fair cities’ that require no reason. Whenever the feeling arises, we say go for it. #BecauseNoReason. It’s the new #YOLO.

Here goes nothing. 

Sometimes you just need a little Morning Gloryville


Get your mind out of the gutter; we’re referring to a drug free rave. What were you thinking about? Morning Gloryville is a morning rave where yoga, dancing, superfood smoothies, and a good brew replace sex, drugs, and techno. There is still techno though, otherwise the dancing would be awkward. If you can think of a reason not to do this, we’re impressed. From 6am-9am you can drop in whenever you like before hitting the office. We dare you to walk away with a bad frame of mind.

Letting go of gravity


Ever get bored of being held down by gravity? Well in anti-gravity yoga you can hang upside down without having your hands on the ground. A feeling one has to experience to understand. Strap yourself in, bend, stretch, and say goodbye to the ground for a while. Why? #BecauseNoReason. And because your body will thank you for it later. Melbourne yogis head to Body Flow Yoga in Windsor. Sydneysiders? You can try it out at House of Yoga in Redfern.

Because Bingo is more fun with Trannies


Sex and the City did it first. So it must be cool, right? What could be more fun than bingo run by trannies with killer stand up comedy? Not much. To top it off it’s cheap and you can win prizes. Head to Sugarmill in The Cross and let the rest of the night take care of itself.

Have a dinner party in the sky, literally


We can feel an anti-gravity theme happening here. Sick of restaurants with your feet firmly planted on the floor? Well, now in Melbourne you can eat dinner with 21 of your closest friends on a table that is literally 50 meters above the ground. They strap you in, the chef does his thing, and you try not to have a panic attack. Just don’t look down. Stick to looking around at those stunning sky-high views using your seat that swivels 180 degrees. If you’ve ever wanted to impress work clients, we suggest giving this a go.

Coffee that purrs


Cats are the best. Coffee is also the best. What happens when you put the two together? Happiness, that’s what. But you also get the Cat Café in Melbourne. Australia’s first cat café in fact, following in the footsteps of Taiwan, Japan, China, and even the UK. The premise is simple really, you buy your tickets, and you go and spend time with cats for an hour while drinking a latte. It’s like free therapy. And the cats are rescued so the warm and fuzzy feelings are two fold. Look out for Braveheart, he might only have one eye, but he’s a lot of fun. 

Dessert should be done eight times over


Anna’s Mess, available at Shangri-La Sydney

Eight desserts in one night, sounds completely reasonable? #BecauseNoReason. That’s all we have to say on that matter. And we should probably also mention that they’re held at the lovely Shangri-La Hotel in Sydney. Creations can range from things like banoffee pie with Szechuan pepper, to a create-your-own sugary plate where guest are given all the sweets they could imagine and free reign. Sign. Us. Up. With a lovely Chambord Gin Fizz? #BecauseNoReason.
