HOT: The Kelvin Club, Melbourne Place, Melbourne

I’ve never understood the need for men to have spaces like private clubs or sheds. Women don’t seem to require those same physical boundaries and RM has not been able to explain why men need it to my satisfaction. The Kelvin Club opened is a private members club for men and women, but the decor […]

HOT: Sushi Ten, Shop 14-15 Port Phillip Arcade, 228 Flinders St, Melbourne

I confess that even though I’m a food snob, when it comes to Japanese food I can’t really tell the difference between good and excellent. If it’s Japanese then I’ll tend to like it (gluggy rice aside). Not so my friend Ev, who has lived in Japan, visited the country many times and is very […]

HOT: Supply & Demand, 1114 High St, Armadale

NOT: Seamstress, 113 Lonsdale St, Melbourne

Seamstress describes itself as ‘a contemporary, mid-price Cantonese eatery boasting two premier cocktail bars.’ I can’t vouch for the two cocktail bars (but the top bar was beautifully decorated with a rack of chinoiserie clothing running along the ceiling over the bar), but I can assure you that the restaurant was a NOT. Firstly, it […]

HOT: The Emerald Peacock, 233 Lonsdale St, Melbourne

Leave the city for two years and dingy Lonsdale Street seems to have been refurbed into the street where people go out to the hip new places. In true Melbourne style, the door to The Emerald Peacock was unmarked. However, the entrance was still noticeable from the street due to the ornate fireplace and eye-catching […]
