These days it seems The Fox Hotel is no stranger in the vocab of the token millennial. It is the home of popular neon haunt Dandy’s Bar after all. Perhaps though it’s best-kept secret is right, under, your, nose. Trocadero Long Bar is the darling downstairs space on Melbourne Street, just a skip and hop from Fish Lane and situated perfectly to make this your newest after TAFE and uni hang. With word of a new dessert menu, three girlfriends and I piled into the Fox on a stormy Saturday with our sights set firmly on hearty wet-weather comfort food. Along with a warm sense of hospitality from everyone we encountered, that is exactly what we found.
In celebration of Montrachet‘s move to the vibrant bustle that is King Street, there will be a mini champagne themed festival held in the laneway occupying Machinery Street. How gorgeous! The Parisian themed affair will include three pop-up bars and offer a selection of twelve premium champagnes for the event’s starry-eyed guests. Think, an assortment of vintage and rosé champagnes accompanied by all your favourite French pastries. Montrachet’s new digs will also mark the opening of a traditional French-style boulangerie with Australian artisan bakers trained by Patrick Delbar from Lyon, France. I can already smell the almond croissants and chocolate eclairs! Tickets are $49pp and in true tradition, they will include a drop of Montrachet’s very finest NV Louis Roederer Brut Premier on arrival…
