Broadsheet’s new membership program, Access, has finally landed in Melbourne. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, here’s how it works: all year round, we bring you exclusive offers that will help you experience your city like never before. Choose between a yearly membership ($6.50 per month) or go month to month ($10 per month) and start redeeming a range of offers. You’ll be surprised how easily an Access membership more than pays for itself.

We’ve listed some of our top picks to help you maximise your membership in Melbourne this summer:

Complimentary tickets to the National Gallery of Victoria’s Gabrielle Chanel. Fashion Manifesto.
Access is giving away a limited number of tickets to the National Gallery of Victoria’s summer blockbuster exhibition, Gabrielle Chanel. Fashion Manifesto, throughout December and January. Direct from Paris’s famous fashion museum Palais Galliera, this is the first exhibition in Australia to focus exclusively on the impact Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel had on 20th-century fashion. Follow the illuminated light frames and discover extraordinary outfits, jewellery, accessories, cosmetics and perfumes from the remarkable span of Chanel’s career.

Broadsheet Access members get special tables at busy restaurants, tickets to exclusive events and discounts on food, coffee, brand offers and more.

Book the Broadsheet Table
Created specifically for Access, the Broadsheet Table lets you dine at some of Melbourne’s top restaurants like an industry insider. We’ve reserved tables for you at hard-to-book spots where you’ll arrive to exclusive menus, off-menu dishes and drinks, perhaps a bit of theatre and an insight into what makes the restaurant tick.

And the current rotation? Society’s Lillian Terrace, Andrew McConnell’s beloved Supernormal and charming Fitzroy eatery Poodle Bar.

Win VIP seats at the Australian Open
The grand slam is fast approaching, and Access wants you to watch the game from prime position. We’ve got an exclusive Australian Open experience in January that you could win, giving you and a friend the opportunity to attend the quarterfinals in week two. You’ll also enjoy dinner by Attica chef Ben Shewry in the exclusive greenhouse-inspired Atrium Eatery & Bar.

Treat yourself to a great value staycation
We’ve put together Broadsheet-certified travel packages for your next local getaway. At Jackalope, enjoy a two-night stay for two guests with meals included at the hatted restaurant Doot Doot Doot and casual cellar door Rare Hare and cocktails at Flaggerdoot.
