A Melbourne Bar Crawl

in Visiting Australia

Post image for A Melbourne Bar Crawl

The central business district of Melbourne almost has a bar or more on every street. There are rooftop bars, basement bars, and everything in between. And a visit to the city wouldn’t be complete without checking out a few of them.

We booked a room in the city on Friday night and decided to visit two rooftop bars, and two basement bars.

My mum was worried. “There’s so much drunken violence in the city these days. It’s all over the news,” she warned. I was a little worried too. It had been years since I’d been out at night in the city. What would await?

Our first stop, in the late afternoon, was Madame Brussels. It calls itself a “rather fancy terrace and public house.” And oh my gosh, my golly, it really is rather fancy! And delightfully quirky. I discovered it one night when some work colleagues took me there. The “main palour” has a fake grass floor, trellises, and garden chairs. Outdoors, orange parasols are provided to customers to provide protection from the sun’s rays. The young male waiters wear an eclectic mix of white shorts, white trousers, and even bowler hats. One had a finely twirled moustache that would provide tough competition for most Rajput men.

The trendy afterwork crowd started to pour in. It was heartening to see quite a few Indians there with their workmates. My husband and I shared a jug of Mimosa cocktail, and then, alas it was time to move on to the next bar….

…. the Red Hummingbird. “A sophisticated urban secret. A hidden jewel, cryptic and coy”. It’s rooftop was jammed with the afterwork crowd so we sipped our chardonnay in the cocktail lounge. At 8 p.m. a DJ arrived to play some funky, jazzy house. However, with the sun setting, we soon decided to go underground to the first basement bar.

A short walk away, we stepped down into the secluded interior of The Gin Palace. Named after an infamous and frowned upon hospitality venue that existed down a dark Melbourne alleyway in the late 1800s, it’s known for its outstanding martinis. Nevertheless, we chose to drink Bombay Sapphire gin and tonic, against a backdrop of leopard print curtains.

Two young Indian guys were entertaining two white girls, on what looked to be a double date. Guys from privileged families in Australia to study perhaps? I couldn’t help wondering what their parents would think of their evening out if they knew.

Pearls Before Swine, “One Nation Underground” was playing as a very happy (tipsy?) customer made his way past us to the toilet. “Yeah, 1967!” he quoted the year of the track to my husband. On his return, he stopped by to make further conversation, “So, where are you from?” he asked. “India.” “Oh one of my workmates is from Sri Lanka. And I know quite a few Indians. They’re lovely people,” he responded. Unfortunately, he spoke with a British accent though, so I can’t claim that he was a friendly Australian.

The night was warm and balmy as we left the Gin Palace. It was around 10.30 p.m. but plenty of people were still out on the streets, including Indian families. Buskers serenaded the passers by. We strolled up Bourke Street to Hardware Lane, a lively narrow laneway filled with restaurants that spill out onto the pavement. Beneath one of them, the deep red interior of Charlies Bar “brings sophistication and class to Melbourne City’s Hardware Lane precinct.” It was our last stop for the night.

We returned to our room by midnight, unscathed. Perhaps we just weren’t out late enough. Or perhaps it was because we stayed away from the notorious nightclubs and stripclubs on King Street. What ever it was, we definitely got to see the enchanting side of the city.

For me, it was quite surreal. Although I used to work in the heart of the city, and have drank and dined in many of its establishments, it’s become like a stranger to me. I felt strangely displaced. I like it that way though. It leaves more room in my heart for Mumbai.

i hear you. all bars in India look like gay bars because few women go out. thats one reason india won’t progress…there will never be complete equality. i am not unpatriotic, i am trying to say it how it really is. look at arranged marriages, a malice thats kicking my ass everyday today. i love my parents but its in their dna to think it fair to choose a girl for me! I’ve already broken an engagement, and am not proud of that, but my parents have set out again to look for someone for me. at the same time, they wont let me live with my russian girlfriend, no matter she knows hindi, the culture and has a good job here in mumbai. anyways, excuse my ranting, i just wanted to stress that putting constraints around peoples’ dreams can’t be termed as ‘culture’

ignore your parents on this one, if you really like her, especially after some months of courtship, go ahead marry her. parents will live to tell the tale. dont ignore them after u r marriage, ’cause then in that case you cease to be an indian. Read about Pravarakya who married…dont be a baby be a man..

Reply

kran January 17, 2011 at 10:36 pm

Thanks for your inputs man. I have been thinking about ‘my way or the highway’ route but I think a holistic approach is the call of the hour. Parents do have some valid reasons that will take some time to list here. I have tried to talk and discuss my views with them. If, after I’ve had my satisfaction of having talked my heart out, parents are still inclined to look away, I think Id just have to keep investigating. you are certainly right about never ignoring one’s parents.

India wont progress till there are equal numbers of man and woman in bars.???

Strange parameters of Progress.!!

Anyway , India is progressing and can do without even men going to bars.All alcohal products and tobacco products should be banned in india , not because of any “Cultural Constraint” but just that we should not encourage “Dreams” to be seen in hangover condition.

kran January 18, 2011 at 1:08 am

I completely agree. and while we are at it, all indians should wear dhoti and widows shouldnt remarry. who chooses what is right or wrong ? we’ve been drinking since the ancient times and yea its bad but we wont go nowhere trying to ban those habits.

Reply

Mohit Gupta January 19, 2011 at 1:25 pm

Wearing dhoti dont make your lever a peace of dead meat but alcohol do.

Dont conflict youself.We know that preventing a widow to marry was social evil and not a cultural trait.We are drinking from ancient time , yes , but it doesnt make it any better or worse.Ills are ills.Ancient or modern.

You have to choose right or wrong but if nonbody produce alcohol , where would you get it.??

Somewhere down the line our personal choices are limited by social and national, cultural preferences.

kran January 19, 2011 at 11:06 pm

i am not a mental wreck from over analysis history of drinking in india, i just enjoy it once in a while and am saying we are focussing on wrong things when we keep repeating like a parrot ‘drinking is bad’.

if no one produce alcohol then i would illegally imprt it coz ppl still be drinking , i ll sell to them and be careful not to go to jail.

It makes for an absorbing read.

You are beautiful, no doubt, but I what I want is your Magical Canon! ;-)

Ah! Its a sad story….
We wanted to buy a new camera and I wanted to buy a Canon S. L. R. but I knew my parents wouldn’t be able to understand its function, so I settled for a Sony digicam H55.

But am going to buy my own Canon after my Internship. Till then I will play with those of my friends. ;-)

How and why did that woman picked up that nickname for herself ?
I’m curious … There were no explanations on the subject on their website.
Enjoy your holidays !

Reply

prashanth January 19, 2011 at 10:11 pm

@Annie

Here’s something which explains the story behind the naming of that Pub, as ‘Madame Brussels’:

“At the top of Bourke Street, Madame Brussels is a delightful rooftop bar, named after one of the most salacious characters in Melbourne’s history. In the 1880s and 1890s, Madame Brussels was an audacious and entrepreneurial woman who owned several infamous brothels in the city. Today Miss Pearls is bringing back the cheeky spirit of the Madame (metaphorically!) at this quirky and charming bar. I recently interviewed her to find out more about Madame Brussels and Melbourne’s colourful past..”

What’s your problem, dude? Is it wrong to answer to answer Annie’s question?…I was just curious about that and just googled it. What in the world made you think that this is some kinda outsourcing stuff? …First off, remember that Outsourcing exists because of talent available at affordable cost and some of your incapabilities…Have some respect for people who are sweating out to make ends meet, by working hard for studying and securing good jobs. Are you one of those folks who is all about “The stuff that comes out of my country is superior to everything”?

@kran

If you are Indian, then why are you trying to pretend like you are some superman from US of A and coming up with sarcastic ‘SouthPark’ like quotes, about outsourcing?!?! Everyone knows that Outsourcing is a sensitive topic, to talk about (specially, in these times..and in USA). So, if some weirdo randomly shows up, by replying to my comment and by quoting ‘Tim Ferris’ and his ‘Outsourcing Life’ stuff, what am I supposed to think? Moron!

I’m not a huge fan of ‘Outsourcing’. For some things (where you need real expertise), it is okay to outsource, but not for trivial things like outsourcing homework and other basic things. Outsourcing also exists because some people want more money than what is worth for the work they are doing…or are so laid-back that they don’t wanna get off the couch…and turn out to be couch-potatoes. If there are problems with outsourcing, the govt./state should act and solve it (which Obama is doing now), rather than blaming the people, who are working hard and using the resources/opportunities…Look at China now. It has used the opportunity and resources…and probably sometime in the future, it will start outsourcing work to other places. Well, the rules of nature!

You have lived (/are living) in two of the cities I really, really want to live in – Melbourne and Mumbai! I’m so jealous! :) I’m an Indian living in the UK (but I have been here since the age of seven so I consider myself half British and half Indian… mostly being Indian in identity anyway!).

However, I still feel curious about her nickname’s choice !
Why did she called herself ” madame Brussels ” and not ” madame London ” or ” madame Paris ” ?
See, being myself a Belgian citizen, born and raised in Brussels and I wonder what she found glamorous, sexy or exciting about the name Brussels !
Any explanation ?

Reply

prashanth January 24, 2011 at 3:05 am

@Annie

You being a Belgian (Brusseleer), I can understand your curiosity. My guess is that the lady (Caroline Hodgson) who picked up the world’s oldest profession, probably wanted to have some anonymity and randomly picked up some name, with a royal touch and with some hint of geography (for reasons, only known to her).

Nope, but I’m planning to take some days off and drive up there, to look at Bruges and Brussels. I’ve been to Netherlands/Holland, a couple of times, but not to Belgium. :)

Nope ! Flemish is still very much spoken in Belgium ( Flemish is to Dutch what Marwari for example is to Hindi )
Brusseleer is a mixture of French and Dutch and spoken only in Brussels.

I didn’t know about Van Damme’s popularity in India !

What’s funny here is that some people got totally confused when I told them that I come from Brussels … They understand that I’m from … BRAZIL !!!
Ha ! ha !

Bruges is indeed a lovely medieval city : the favorite ones among tourists and natives. There is a special atmosphere there and it’s a city for all seasons but best visited in good weather for it can get mysterious and even quite depressing in the rain and mist !

“Flemish is still very much spoken in Belgium ( Flemish is to Dutch what Marwari for example is to Hindi )”

@Annie

True, but your comparison of Flemish to Marwari is not really correct, as Flemish is derived from Dutch (West Germanic) and Marwari is not derived from Hindi and is a different language from Hindi (although both are derived from Sanskrit, like many other Indian languages).

Reply

Mohit Gupta January 28, 2011 at 8:45 pm

Prahsanth ,

Annie is not so wong if you see from the similarity point of view intead of derivation origin.According to Wikipedia

“It shares a 50%-65% lexical similarity with Hindi (this is based on a Swadesh 210 word list comparison). Marwari has many cognate words with Hindi. Notable phonetic correspondences include /s/ in Hindi with /h/ in Marwari. For example /sona/ ‘gold’ (Hindi) and /hono/ ‘gold’ (Marwari). /h/ sometimes elides. There are also a variety of vowel changes. Most of the pronouns and interrogatives are, however, distinct from those of Hindi.

65% similarity is something which cant be ignored and Its still not an OFFICIAL or Scheduled language of India and still considered as a dialect of HINDIA much like Bhojpuri , Brijbhasha and Awadhi.

Reply

prashanth January 28, 2011 at 9:19 pm

@Mohit

I agree and that’s the reason why I didn’t totally assert the differences (by using “not really”). These 2 languages are derived from Sanskrit..So, they have lot of common words. English and German also have a LOT of common words. My logic was that Flemish is a mix of French and Dutch, but Marwari is not a mix of Hindi and some other language. Marwari is a different language from Hindi, but shares many words with Hindi. If I’m wrong, please do correct me! :)

Reply

Mohit Gupta January 28, 2011 at 9:56 pm

Prashanth ,

You are right when you say that Hindi and Marwadi both derived from Sanskrit.

But you are wrong when you give example of English-German. :)
A person knowing English will not understand a single line of German or Vice-versa.

But A person knowing Hindi can understand Marwadi very well and Also Bhopuri and Punjabi and Vice-Verca.

Flesmish is not a mix of Dutch and French but Brusseleer is , I think .?? Annie better know.
