Rooftop, pollo gear and gardens? YES PLEASE!
Keep walking south on Exhibition Street towards Lees Pl
When you get to Bourke Street, cross the street and make a left
Madame Brussels will be on the right hand side!
Madame Brussels’ address is 59 Bourke Street, but in true Melbourne fashion the building looks nothing like a bar, so keep an eye out for the subtle sign. Head into the building and make your way all the way to the top, where you’ll find the garden themed bar. You can either walk all the way up 7 flights of stairs or easily take the lift.
You will receive one of their famous Madame Brussels jugs to share, a perfect way to finish off your Distillery Discovery!
Need some food?
We can highly recommend you sample Madame’s snack menu if you are starting to feel a bit hungry by now.
The famous poached chicken, chive and mayo toasted sandwiches served with lemon wedges is simply to die for, or if you feel like something sweet, the smooth chocolate fondue of French 70% cocoa pearls is a dream!
Game: Degrees of Separation
One person picks two things that are unrelated.
The other person has to provide a chain of plausible associations to connect them.
For example, if you say "lion and slippers," I might say, "A lion hunts warthogs. Warthogs are pigs. Pigs in a blanket is a breakfast entree. A blanket goes on a bed. When I get out of bed, I put on my slippers."
Maybe (definitely) you can come up with a better one than this.
Madame Brussels Lane, as well as this bar, are named after the Melbourne brothel owner, Madame Brussels, who owned 8 high-class brothels during the late nineteenth century. How scandalous!
This Concludes The Formal Part Of Your Distillery Discovery.
We hope it has been fun!
