It's welcoming and worldly, yet very Melbourne. Bluestone Downstairs is an iconic, somewhat eclectic, New York-style basement bar suiting a variety of people and purposes. Lunch, dine or sup on informal Contemporary Melbourne Cuisine, whether tasty tapas, or our award-winning wood fired pizza, you can unwind perusing a well-compiled wine list or sipping a stylish cocktail.
This hidden gem is heritage-listed with original bluestone walls and features, yet is decidedly chic. Sink into a Chesterfield, gather around on banquettes, or tuck into a private dining niche amidst flocked wallpaper and imported curtaining. This much-loved Melbourne hot spot welcomes venue bookings of all sizes.
Bluestone's signature restaurant offers an experience that encapsulates very Melbourne dining. You are invited to step in off the busy street, step out of your busy lifestyle, and step into an inspiring retreat that harmonises nostalgia, elegance and innovative dining. You will feel a million miles from your desk...but you'll find us right in the heart of the CBD.
Bluestone's Contemporary Melbourne Cuisine by American Executive Chef, Cody Cunningham, draws upon his experiences in both India and The States. A Bluestone Restaurant experience - whether daytime business luncheon, romantic evening rendezvous, casual or more formal social event - is a most uplifting experience in aesthetic surrounds. It's affordable, it's local... and the Sydney Morning Herald listed it 'one of the eight best Melbourne restaurants for a business lunch'.
Bluestone Restaurant is a "must-do" Melbourne Dining Experience. Established in 2000.
2013 Finalist "Best Modern Australian Restaurant - Formal" in the Restaurant and Catering Awards for Victoria.
