If you're searching for somewhere to kick off the long weekend after an action-packed week at work then look no further CBD folk, The Melbourne has re-opened on the corner of Hay and Milligan Streets in the city, but the old pub is now known as De Baun & Co.
The Melbourne closed its doors three years ago for a massive redevelopment and De Baun & Co is the first of five new venues in the precinct to open to the public. De Baun & Co is all about the old pub feeling—this will be the place to go to watch the footy with a beer in hand—while the rest of the venues are bringing a bit of international flavour to the west end of the city.
On Thursday 5 April, Australia's first Hattendo will open in the conservatory at The Melbourne Hotel. If you don't know what Hattendo is, you're in for a treat. It's a kind-of-sweet, kind-of-savoury Japanese cream bun and let's just say that if you like Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tarts, you're going to love Hattendo.
The next cab off the ranks will be Keisuke, a new ramen bar which should be opening in the second week of April. Keisuke is one of the biggest ramen bars in Singapore and this will be Perth's first, so get excited people!
After that, there's still the Aurora Rooftop Lounge and the Grand Orient, an amazing Chinese Restaurant, to open in the precinct, along with the accommodation which includes 22 gorgeous heritage rooms. To say we're excited is an understatement.
