So my girlfriends & I are going to Melbourne in a few weeks for a girls weekend. We're all mums, none of us have hardly been out at all for a number of years, so we're looking at having a night out on the town. We're all early-mid thirties, so we don't want to go anywhere too "young".....
Any suggestions/recommendations? Doesn't have to be city, but close to the city would be good. We're staying in Richmond.
We'd be looking at first going to a funky little wine bar/cocktail bar, somewhere where we can sit & chat & drink, & then a little later on in the night going somewhere we can go and dance to bad 80s/90s pop music
Where should we go????

I've heard that the over 28s nightclub called Daisys in Ringwood is good, though I've never been there. It's possibly a bit too far out though.

I'm early 30's and go out in the inner city a fair bit. Try:
In the CBD-
The Black Pearl
Naked in the sky
There would be plenty of places in Richmond too but I wouldn't know what to recommend sorry
And Brunswick tends to have a younger, more pub-y crowd.
For 80's and 90's dancing you could try Retro on lonsdale st. You're not going to get cheesy dancing and a nice establishment in one place, so make sure you're drunk enough to not notice how grotty the place is, lol.

Not sure if they're all open anymore and can't help with the 80's, 90's dance except maybe Metro nightclub?

Oh the Toff in Town is another good one, above Cookie. That little pocket in behind Swanson and Lt Bourke has loads of good bars, many of them already mentioned.
