Look out, Prahran. Your newest hang has arrived in town and it's a glitzy, glamorous creature, draped in pink, emerald and gold and inspired by the Riviera. Opening on Friday, December 7, The Greville hopes to take care of all your weekend needs — namely, drinking, eating and dancing.

Walking in, you'll find yourself in the Champagne Bar. Grab a glass of Dom Perignon or a signature cocktail created by Bar Manager Alan Coop,such as the Mid Summer Night (Four Pillars gin, blood orange syrup, ginger juice and sambuca) or the Smoke & Mirrors (Vida Mezcal, Laphroaig whiskey, honey and Angostura Bitters), then sink into a pink velvet armchair, surrounded by pink velvet walls. 

When you've worked up an appetite, continue into the restaurant. In this lush space — splashed with gold, emerald and marble — you'll be feasting on the dishes of Head Chef Casey Norman (ex-Cumulus Inc. and Baby). Among her share plates are beef tartare with capers, radish, cornichons and croutons; grilled calamari with smoked ricotta, and king prawns with spicy remoulade, apple and quinoa crisp.

Next up, it's time to dance. On Friday and Saturday nights, the staircase upwards will lead you to the first floor, where you'll be making shapes to some of Melbourne's favourite DJs. Alternatively, collapse into a booth, wait for a waiter and content yourself with being a wallflower.

Find The Greville at 132–134 Greville Street, Prahran. It's open Wednesday and Thursday from 5pm until late, and Friday–Sunday, from midday until late.
