Welcome to our brand new website, we’re pretty happy with it and hope you like it too.

It’s designed to be pretty straightforward and easy to use, while keeping a connection to the past site and the Milk Bar aesthetic. Anyway, we’ll let you have a play around with it yourself, and here are some new features we’re excited about.

EVENTS
We all know Melbourne’s a place where awesome stuff is constantly happening, and in a bid to list a slice of the cool stuff our events calendar now covers every day of the week. Our aim is to get coverage for the lesser know, indie events that you might not have heard about, as well as the bigger stuff. So if you’ve got any events coming up, send us your stuff. We’d love to hear about them and share them.

SOCIAL MEDIA
It’s now easier to share and comment on Milk Bar’s content via social media, whether it’s Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or Vimeo. Plugins and buttons appear on the right hand side of the page and top and bottom of every article. You like?

PHOTOGRAPHY
Milk Bar is all about community and pretty pictures (OK, film and food are pretty up there, too). In a nod to this we’re launching a new series called Photo of the Week, where we invite photographers to send us their favourite picture of Melbourne. We’ll run the picture on the front page of Milk Bar, and link to the photographer’s blog. We reckon it’s a good way to introduce our audience to clever creative types and get exposure for local artists. So all you snappers, send us your stuff!

VIDEOS
OK so this is pretty rad. Over the past few months we’ve been working on a bunch of videos with some pretty amazing local people and businesses – Rooftop Bees, Earl Canteen, Burch & Purchese, Der Raum and Pot Black Ceramics. These short films will live on our new Vimeo site and start rolling out next week. We’re also partnering with some excellent organisations and festivals this year to create unique video content, so moving pictures will be a big part Milk Bar this year. We welcome local film makers and anyone with a short film or clip about Melbourne to submit it or link to Vimeo. In the meantime, there’s a little teaser for the videos we’ve done so far.

We hope you like what you see and have a great weekend.
