ASIAN BEER CAFE
CELEBRATING 13 YEARS OF ASIAN BEER CAFE
Asian Beer Cafe aims to take you on a new and exciting experience every time you enter through our doors. It’s all about the mix of authenticity and contemporary decor with an emphasis on the details.
The atmosphere is honest and modern and the furniture is simple and rich with tradition. All interior pieces are in a worn Asian style and feature 70 year old recycled materials including the iron wood from an old cargo ship that was sunk by pirates off the coast of Indonesia.
You will discover traditional East Asian flavours in our cuisine – we prepare our dishes with the freshest ingredients, but with an Asian Beer Cafe twist. The Asian Beer Cafe is built as one harmonious entity; a single space with different zones. The 5 private dining areas make up the main space, ideal for staff Christmas parties, birthday parties, product launches, business meetings, kicking off your night over the weekend or a casual drink after work.
Our balcony space is a Melbourne icon, featuring spectacular views over Swanston St and of Melbourne’s State Library – truly one of a kind. Gorgeous, yet minimalistic; private dining rooms and the 20 metre line bar makes this one of Melbourne’s most popular bars any night of the week.
STEP INTO OUR OFFICE
Speakeasies were prohibition’s worst-kept secrets. One decade on, you could say Father’s Office ® meets that criteria.
Walk down Little Lonsdale St and find a set of doors with the 18th Amendment on entry. Walk up the ‘old oak’ stairs and you are transformed into an old world version of the 1920’s prohibition era with some twists to create a truly authentic experience.
Vintage pieces line the establishment, including an original Swanston Street sign. The spectacular view of the State Library sets the scene to chill on the large wrap-around balcony and a signature cocktail; the opulent space with tin ceilings, art deco inspired wall sconces and decanter lighting. The custom-made copper beer & cocktail taps over the industrial-style bar, period mosaics and gangster wall encapsulate the era of underground speakeasy bars.
The food menu comprises Americana a la carte and food from the bar with high quality local produce and premium meat cuts and the combinations of quality food & drink offers are worth the visit. We cater for big groups as well as small. DJ’s and themed nights complement the experience. Come celebrate with us in the good times and the bad.
