Joining the brotherhood of Pellegrino 2000 and Bistrot 916, Clam Bar takes inspiration from the iconic steakhouses of New York, with plenty of love for Aussie seafood and beef.

“We have some of the best produce here in Australia, I’m so excited to give the great steakhouse a revamp,” says co-owner Andy Tyson (with Dan Pepperell and Mikey Clift).

On the menu, head chef Sam Galloway—who was previously at Bistrot 916—turns out premium cuts of meat and whole fish from a Josper oven, joined by a significant raw bar offering with various oyster treatments, prawn cocktails, and steak tartare with French fries.

To drink, American classics take centre stage, with martinis and Manhattans in the mix alongside punchy Tiki creations, and a sizeable but approachable wine list packed with well-known producers.

Offering a hefty dose of luxury without compromising on comfort and accessibility, Clam Bar has booth and table seating in the dining room, with Murano glass sconces, art deco chandeliers, and custom works by Archibald-nominated artist Laura Jones and Sulman-nominated Nadia Hernandez creating a charming but modern atmosphere—bookings are strongly recommended.
