Fantastic Fifth…

Posted by on Nov 12, 2011 in Melbournian Girl Abroad | 0 comments

New York knows how to do great bars, they know how to do great rooftops and they know how to show off their stunning skyline. My favorite New York bar, 230 Fifth does all of this at once.The bar is located in lower mid town (not far from Madison Square Park) on top of a tall office block. I remember when they opened a few years ago and the queues were right around the block. These days its normally not to bad unless its a sunny friday evening in summer.When we arrived we swept in past the security ... Read More

Wine dont you try here…
Last chance to enter the La Clinica Giveaway! Isn't wine lovely sometimes? After our Melbourne Open House day rambles we headed to the City Wine Shop (think effortless French feeling sophistication - not brown paper bags). It met all our criteria for a MOH drink stop (none of us had been before, seats, alcohol) and was on our way home - perfect.We bypassed the lovely outdoor seating area looking across spring to Parliament House and gardens. We went straight through the front room lined with ... Read More

I’m rarely shaken…
On Saturday evening, post concert (Beethoven's Ninth) at the town hall we headed to The Westin's Martini Bar for cocktails to celebrate a certain legumes birthday. I may have mentioned this before; I have a thing for hotel bars. I love that they feel so glamourous and International and even more because they are the kind of place you can enjoy a cocktail and still hear your companions speak. Although I grant this is not always a benefit.The bar itself is tucked above City Square, Behind Chanel (sigh) ... Read More

Shall we play cards…
I love love love being in the know about the things to do in and around Melbourne (am figuring you may have already guessed this?). When I first got home a few years ago after having spent most of my twenties on foreign shores I realized the places I recalled as being the 'it' places either no longer existed, were no longer 'it' and worse were geared at someone in their uni years and not a cultured sophisticate such as... well myself. Quel Horreur. So in very typical MelbournianGirl fashion I went ... Read More

Hey Charlie…

Hey Charlie…
When it gets to Friday night post work drinks there are a lot of options in Melbourne. The catch with our pretty city is that there are also a lot of people with the same goal: to celebrate the end of the week. CJ and I tried to get into Murmur (my third failed attempt) but while there was easily space there was no seating. We then checked out BarBait with no luck (as in we didn't feel like walking any great distance) so to the ever reliable Hardware Lane we headed. Now when you think about it, what ... Read More
