Up to the Aylesbury….
The Aylesbury roof top bar magically appeared before us when in need for a drink on Saturday night. Now I can see you arching your brow at that...magically you scoff? Well, when Bean, Dino and I planned to head out for a glass of bubbles to enjoy on a mild but threatening rain Saturday night little did we know how hard it would be to find somewhere that wasn't hosting a private function! After two fails and a little heartbreak on our way to the next on the list we passed the gleaming lights of ... Read More

Crossing the Moat…
    When a few months ago I heard that the Moat, a new cafe/bar/restaurant, was opening under the State Library in Melbourne I was thrilled. But then I dawdled and delayed and for some reason simply didn't find time to go visit. Silly me. Last Thursday in dire need a glass of bubbles Dino and I headed here for a post work drink and noise catch up. The Moat is located to the side and underneath the State Library near the entrance to the Wheeler Centre. You walk through iron gates, down ... Read More

The bar and restaurant a meld of lush dark honeycombed wood and broken in to three distinct areas.   At the front is a bar with one large communal table to the side and a lounge/informal ...

Sing me an aria…
There is just something about getting to take tea in an elegant hotel that makes my world right, so when looking for somewhere to head post silent cinema the Langham and more specifically the Aria Bar and lounge sounded perfect.    Bean, Dino and I headed around Southbank originally looking for a bar and did a quick 180 (a girls perogative I believe) and decided tea was really what we were after (yup – wild child) somewhere serene and lovely and well Langham ish to settle down and have ...

If you must keep me waiting…
  ...then please let it be at The Waiting Room Bar in Crown. I think when I originally heard this bar described as somewhere one might slip into a Cary Grant kind of mood or perhaps find a look a like I know this was a bar I would become friends with. To escape the 40* day on Monday last week the gang an I retreated into the air conditioned Mecca that is Crown for lunch, movie, shopping and drinks. The Waiting Room bar was the perfect place to sip champagne and pretended we were far more ... Read More
