This was fun and a different experience.
If you come here for a positive vibe and great music this is the place. Here, you can find yoga classes, trivia competitions and more. I will for sure be back again and again. What makes this pub truly stand out is its fresh-squeezed cocktails. I have yet to enjoy any live music here, but it seems like a great venue; love the floating stage and the general atmosphere. They offer simple meat and cheese boards themselves, but are happy for you to bring your own nosh from the myriad of local take away joints.
Happy hour was great value, although the bar was super crowded and it was not easy to get a drink. You could be eating a tousle of spaghetti laced in a bright tomato sauce studded with garlic and capers or a Bolognese jaffle that could conjure up the Aussie-Italian upbringing you never had. We had a great time and I would definitely go back. We went here for the view, the cold beer, and entertainment. It is with great sadness and a heavy heart I write this review. The Everleigh conquered the handcrafted, highbrow, olde-worlde cocktail experience in Melbourne. Lou's Blues gets boos from both me and my girlfriend.
While the vibe was good, at 8pm there were a ton of massive bouncers congregating around. This craft beer company is known for its beachy vibe and top-notch brew. The drinks were weak and sad.

Where are the wilted spinach, hash browns etc. The peel-and-eat shrimp are reasonably priced and the bacon blue cheese sliders are, well — talk about a naughty indulgence!

The restaurant was nice, well decorated, and had a good view of the nearby parkland. Made reservations while here for a training to take my friend out for her birthday. Food was excellent and reasonably priced, and the decor and atmosphere are what I look for in a good bar. Then she cleared the chips off the table the only thing I could eat before we were finished with them. In 2016, all anyone wanted to do was drink amazing whisky while looking at the dumpster fire that was the year in review, but Whisky and Alement have been paving Melbourne nights with precious amber distills since 2010.

Settle in beside their cosy indoor stage where jazz hepcats The Rookies do their thing. I had one bite and spit it into my napkin. Melbourne is supposed to be known for its foodie culture- apparently Rydges doesn't care what kind of swill or service they present. The new iteration of the Everleigh feels more evolved, and interaction with the bar is more encouraged than in the former days of strict table service. Park yourself beside the window looking down on Brunswick Street. This is a fabulous little place right on the beach.
