Polly Cocktail Lounge

Published November 5th 2011
Want a bit of glamour this weekend? Then get yourself to the Polly Cocktail Lounge in Brunswick Street, Fitzroy.

This stunning venue, has a Moulin Rouge, vampiric feel to it. Filled with crushed velvet lounges and vintage furniture, the Polly Cocktail Lounge takes you back to a bygone era.

Whether you're a lady of leisure who likes to sip at her whisky or a stylish lad who wants to have a beer with the boys, Polly is the place to go.

With over sixty cocktails to choose from plus local and international beers, spirits, liquors, wines and champagnes, it offers something for everyone. I personally recommend the 'Dominatrix' cocktail for lovers of chocolate and cream, like myself. Their red wine menu is impressive and perfect with a pizza (only $6).

One of the outstanding features of Polly is the outside smokers area, located at the entrance. Stunning in marble, with greenery and statues honouring the feminine, it gives those who like to indulge in a cigarette, a place to be social, while giving coverage from the weather, rain, hail or shine.

For designated drivers or those who don't drink, Polly offers coffee, tea, hot chocolate and the yummiest mocktails. For those who are fans of the cigar, Polly possesses it's own cigar menu, so inviting, one can feel the ambience of Winston Churchill.

It is without a doubt, my favourite drinking and eating venue in Melbourne. Over the years, I have used it for birthday parties, after work meetings and coffee catchups.

With vintage style being all the rage right now, I provoke you to visit Polly this weekend.

You've captured Polly perfectly. I used to live up the road in North Fitzroy and my friends and I used to go there for a cocktail when in need of some burlesque lounge-style glamour!

I love Polly. Really wanted to review this one too, because it is so much fun. But I think you said everything ;) I love that front garden too, even as a non-smoker. They have a selection of cigars at the bar too.
