One of the best things about Melbourne is the hidden bars, cafes and restaurants that are out there waiting to be discovered. The Emerald Peacock is located on Lonsdale Street in the CBD. With three different bars, and another one soon to be opened there is something here for everyone.
There is the Peacock Lounge, which is on the entrance level and has a certain old world charm to it. The decor is reminiscent of a French bistro, and you can book tables, booths and functions. It is the perfect place to hold your next birthday celebration.
The Rooftop Bar is, as its name suggests, located on the rooftop. With fabulous views of the city lights, it is a great place to meet with friends for an after work drink or for a weekend get together. You can mingle here even in the cooler months as the bar is filled with patio heaters; however it tends to get a bit more crowded than the Peacock Lounge downstairs. Bookings are not available for this bar, so if you get a table, be sure to keep it because you will not get another one.
The Cocktail Bar is perfect if you are planning a girls' night out. The walls are lined with vintage French wallpaper so you get the feeling of being in a classic black and white film. Although you can purchase a cocktail in any of the bars at The Emerald Peacock, there is something classy about doing it in this particular bar. Be sure to try the signature cocktail, also named the Emerald Peacock.
Whichever bar strikes your fancy, there is also a food menu, and the gourmet pizzas are a great accompaniment for your cocktail. If you are looking for a place for your next get together with friends, be sure to give this place a try. The entrance is small and easy to miss, so keep an eye out for the bouncer at the door. Remember there is a dress code, so be sure to dress to impress.
