The Post Hotel in St Kilda has been around for a while (140 years to be exact) and with the new owners on board, it has been revamped. Old looking pub on the outside, modern and stylish on the inside. The chef is from a hatted restaurant (Longrain) and most of the dishes had an asian influence to it.
We decided to go to Gami before our little Escape Room adventure because its happy hour somewhere in the world right now, it’s Beer o’clock! My friend booked for a table of 5 on a Saturday for 12:30PM and when I arrived, I was really surprised that it wasn’t packed at all. We were seated upstairs and surprise surprise, it was fully empty!
It’s Sunday noon and guess where we’re heading, to have some cheese and wine for LUNCH (how fancy is that yo??)! There is two locations – St Kilda and Carlton and we were booked in for the Carlton one for the 12PM session which goes for two hours. So out of the dreary Melbourne weather (windy and rainy all day…) and into the licensed Fromagerie we go.
I got a chance to eat here because I won a $200 voucher from the urban list (THANKS SO MUCH!!!!) and I decided to take the whole family (it was a family affair). We made a booking at 8pm and when we arrived we were greeted and shown to our table which was in the outdoor bar area (no fuss) and we were given blankets since it was cold (HOW AWESOME!!!). Menus came out and I started picking the entrees.
I was taken here by one of my two stooges and decided to take Mr. D and a friend Miss Pear back. What I love about this place is to get into the bar/lounge, you need to press the doorbell and someone will open the door and let you in (yes the door is locked, always checking). Once you enter they will ask how many people and if there’s space and in you go.
Turned out we were lucky and was able to get into the lounge area!! As the lounge area is carpeted and huge lounge chairs, we were asked to take off our shoes (yay novelty!) and leave them at the shoe rack. As soon as we got comfy and seated (or lay down), the waiter come by with the drinks menu and warm hand towels so we can be clean to start our drinking (great service!).
The Lion King Musical has finally hit Melbourne and of course another excuse for date night. The lovely boyfriend took me to a surprise dinner date at Neapoli Wine Bar but obviously while he was leading me there I kept thinking to myself “why does he keep insisting going down the dark alley ways?” But as soon as we got to the wine bar, I was blown away.
