The Exchange Beach Club 2021–22
Port Melbourne's pop-up beach bar is back for another summer — complete with $2 oyster specials and bottomless boozy brunches.
October 19, 2021
As the weather continues to defrost, southside summer pop-up The Exchange Beach Club is returning for another bout of drinks by the sea. Kicking off Saturday, November 6, it'll once again bring private cabanas, umbrellaed outdoor seating, day beds, refreshments and entertainment right onto the sand of Port Melbourne beach.
You can enjoy boozy beverages from the container bar — think, beer, seltzer, wine, Four Pillars spritz cocktails on tap and more — while kicking back by the bay. There are mini esky packs to keep your drinks cool, and happy hour specials every Monday to Wednesday. Meanwhile, the kitchen's slinging beachy bites like fish and chips, avocado salad bowls, wagyu burgers, and kewpie-laced lobster and prawn rolls.
There'll be ice cream sandwiches for when those sweet cravings hit, plus juices and mocktails for those keeping it fresh.
Need more motivation? On Tuesdays, the pop-up's doing $2 oysters and $9 passionfruit caprioskas (4–5pm), while a $60 bottomless boozy brunch runs from 10–12pm every Sunday. And on Saturday mornings, the KX Pilates brunch will help you ease into the weekend with a beachside exercise session followed by beats and eats ($40).
Private cabanas are available to book for up to four people. Oh, and pups are welcome as well, with water bowls and free dog treats provided, along with the odd giveaway.
The beach bar will be settling in from November 6–January 30. Catch it from 4–10pm Monday–Wednesday (expanding to 12–10pm Monday–Wednesday from December 13), 12–10pm Thursday–Friday and 10am–10pm Saturday–Sunday.
