LOCATION
Located in Melbourne’s CBD, between Queen and Elizabeth Street's, close to Crown Casino and the Exhibition Centre.

DETAILS
The building features original bluestone walls, from the earlier woolshed days, expansive ceilings, soft curtaining and an ambient colour palette of rich golden hues. The space is divided into two main areas: the upstairs dining room and a stylish, downstairs lounge bar. The opulent upstairs space features bare stone walls, plush fabrics, gilt framed mirrors and well spaced tables draped with crisp white linen. For a pre dinner drink, cocktails or night cap, head downstairs to the chic bar, with its soft lighting, Chesterfield chairs, and ottomans. This venue provides luxurious lounging and a menu featuring gourmet woodfired pizzas and tapas, plus a small a la carte menu that complements diverse wine list.

FOOD & BEVERAGE
Bluestone's Executive Chef Cody Cunningham leads a dynamic team, presenting a Modern Australian menu, with both European and contemporary influences, in stylish and private surrounds. For entrée dine on the likes of braised western plains pork roulade, with swede puree and cranberry jus or baked scallops with capsicum salsa, parmesan and herb crust. All main courses come with house-baked bread, pendelton olive oil and dukkah spice. The menu features tantalizing dishes such as pan-seared duck breast with wilted cos, and cinnamon, star anise jus as well as char-grilled eye fillet with sweet potato, parsnip and tallegio dauphinoise. For dessert opt for the bluestone dessert platter, which features a selection of sweet treats to share.

FUNCTIONS
Bluestone can cater for both small and large corporate or social functions. The Bluestone Restaurant can seat up to 140 guests or accommodate 180 for a standing event. The downstairs lounge lends itself to private and group events with a capacity of up to 110 guests seated or 150 standing. The entire venue can be exclusively hired so guests can enjoy a fine dining experience in the elegant restaurant and then head down to the bar afterwards to start the party. The restaurant also boasts a private dining area suitable for up to 21 guests on one grand table or up to 33 on three tables.
