A fantastic bar and restaurant with an impressive view
Left Bank Melbourne celebrated its revamp of the stunning venue located on a starry Tuesday night. The venue is situated at one of Melbourne's prettiest areas at Southbank with a view of the Yarra River and the city skyline, elegant decor suitable for various occasions and an outdoor terrace. This certainly is a great location to have a Friday night drink or celebrate a special event.
The evening soiree started off in style with the guests being checked in by two leggy ladies wearing white wigs and super high stilettos. I knew the venue had gone all out to impress when I walked past the fully stocked oyster bar to my left and then a charming lady appeared before me perched in a gigantic champagne glass filled with balloons, enticing you to have a drink and fill your belly with Left Bank's signature Cocktail which were served throughout the night. These glasses filled with a light peach liqueur were certainly enticing in appearance, even for a light drinker like myself.
Like an exhibition, the venue displayed their finest cuisines from their most popular suppliers on long wooden tables. Each table was decorated elegantly in various themes, from the rustic antipasto table to the artisan cheese board, all the way to the donut wall. There were also mini macarons, cupcakes and tiny tarts encased with a buttery crust which was perfectly balanced with a tangy centre, filled with either lemon merigan or chocolate brownie. Like a true glutton, I sampled each dessert at least once. if not many times over. And if that were not enough, attentive waiters worked the rooms with trays of beef sliders, triple cream brie and fresh fig on s brioche crisp, and coconut prawn cigars with a chilli and lime mayonnaise.
Now, why all the generous offering from Left Bank Melbourne? Well, they want to host your next event of cause. Left Bank Melbourne has plenty of unique and wonderful rooms to throw a great party.
