Madame Brussels sets itself apart from Melbournes rather serious bar scene by opting for a kitsch garden party theme. Faux green grass, a hedged bar and garden furniture set the scene of the third floor city venue, with cocktails key on the menu. In summer, sit on the rooftop terrace and soak up views of Melbourne.
Looking for some cheeky fun? This “rather fancy terrace and public house” will cheerfully lead you down the garden path. Decked out like a twee lawn party circa 1950s, Madame Brussels is unashamedly over the top, with fey furniture, astroturf, white picket fence and a puckish staff combining to make this less pub, more parlour. Starting to shiver into your Pimms? Your everthoughtful hosts will be all too glad to grab you a blanket and hot water bottle. All ...read more
It was a warm summer evening and a friend from interstate had organised a catch up. We wanted a venue where we could enjoy the night outdoors. Madame Brussels popped up as a venue of interest when we did a search online. Upon arrival, a table out on the balcony was available as it was first come first serve. Very popular location with patrons having after work drinks. We opened up a tab and found that there were plenty of waiters around but also hardly able to catch a break. The atmosphere would be quite noisy just through conversations of different groups. Drink menu was extensive but we stuck with the sangrias all night. We met a lovely waiter by the name Lucy and she did a fantastic job waiting our table. Good experience overall. Will be heading back on the next occasion.
I recently came here on a Thursday evening with a group of friends. The place was pretty quiet and was not packed. This places serves great cocktail drinks and cured meat with finger food. Their staff are nice, friendly and put in a lot of effort in shaking your cocktail drink when ordering. It is the perfect hang out place for any occasion!
