East of Everything
Hidden away above BarNone and signposted very subtly, we offer some of the most surprising and welcome city views in the east, this discreet and understated manner being at the very heart of our charm. With six rotating beers on tap and constant keg changes, we pride ourselves on our craft beer range. The extensive list offers both locally-brewed and imported craft beer and cider – the perfect bevvies to complement any of our southern-style dishes. Some local brewers often featured on tap include Red Hill, Kaiju, Wolf of the Willows, Exit, Holgate Brewery, Moo Brew, Hargreaves Hill and many more. We also like to think we offer something for everyone, if your drink of choice isn’t beer trust us we have you covered. Our menu is driven by distinct southern flavours – think Buffalo Chicken Wings, Spicy Quesadillas, Flavoursome Gumbo and Beef Debris. Hearty and soulful, our menu transports you to balmy, downtown New Orleans.

The new menu is available throughout the venue 7 days a week lunch and dinner, with the kitchen closing at 10pm every night and all day dining available on weekends. The kitchen works closely with small regional suppliers and is focused on using sustainable and seasonal produce, with as much as possible made in-house, from their bread, mustard and pickles to curing their own free-range bacon. The public bar has retained its art-deco features, with 12 taps featuring craft beer, showcasing speciality brewing at its best, and trusty Carlton Draught for when the footy is on the big screen. The space lends itself to a variety of areas suitable for groups of any size, whether a sit-down meal in the semi-private dining room, or standing canapés in the front bar.
