Left Bank Melbourne
Book a boozy lunch with riverside views.
When you're feeling a little bit fancy, Left Bank Melbourne offers pretty great views of the Yarra and the city skyline, with the cocktails and lounge vibes to match. This bar and restaurant is open from the early morning to late into the night with a wide-ranging menu to suit any occasion.
Kick the afternoon off right with a round of oysters prepared three ways ($16.50 for three and $29.50 for six) to try these slimy morsels drizzled in a raspberry mignonette, chilli mint mango and decadent caviar pickled ginger. Add a bottle of bubbles or a round of spritzes to the order and you're well on your way to having a luxurious day out in the city.
As the day stretches on, you can opt for a series of small and large plates of modern Australian food as well as some classic pizzas and burgers. Left Bank Melbourne's supper menu is also a great win for those needing late night nibbles — served from 10:30pm. Grab some aged mozzarella and leek arancini ($18), wagyu sliders ($21) and some more pizza until the kitchen closes late in the evening
Cocktails from the impressive bar menu will certainly be on the agenda, too. Grab La Dolce Vita ($23) made from blood orange gin, lemonade, blackberries sage and Prosecco or the Agave Inferno ($25) made with cumin infused tequila, lime juice, agave syrup, coriander and chilli. Alternatively, you can have a big day on the wines, beers or ciders. Whatever you choose, you'll have a super glam day or night down by the Yarra River.
