Situated in the heart of the night life hub of Brunswick street Black Pearl offers patrons a sophisticated space to share a cocktail or two with friends.

The downstairs bar is a bright and elegant space with comfortable seating. While the wood-panel walls may give the impression that the place sells flooring to locals renovating their brand new warehouse apartment by day, the atmosphere is great and the drinks, whether it be a boutique beer or cocktail served in a novelty glass, are delicious.

Floor space (and the queue for the bar) becomes crowded into Friday and Saturday evenings so if you're after a more settled evening head upstairs and follow the hallway to The Attic.

Ring the door bell (situated deceptively to your right) and a charming and/or witty barman will greet you at the door and welcome you to the hallowed area offering full table service, a décor with numerous conversation starters and even better seating than downstairs.

On busier nights you may have to hand over your number and await the message informing you that "all is gravy" and your group can take your place.

They take bookings in advance or if you're a spontaneous creature feel free to send a text message to check immediate availability (0488 304 304). Like downstairs, The Attic offers a sophisticated selection of cocktails and beers and a small selection of tasty pates or mascarpone figs to eat.

While the drinks are undoubtedly fantastic what makes The Black Pearl a really great experience is the staff - not only with the service they provide to their customers but also in their interaction and relationships with each other; especially their affection for the ever popular "chichi" from the bar downstairs. Make sure you give him a roaring applause. He sure as hell deserves it.
