A speakeasy and thrift shop, South Yarra’s Pawn & Co pushes the boundaries on Melbourne’s bar culture. Do some window-shopping, sip on a prohibition-era cocktail and snack on New Orleans sliders while the DJ spins tunes from a hollowed out baby-grand piano. A charming bar with an all-night license, Pawn & Co is the perfect hideaway right in the heart of Chapel Street.

LOCATION
On Chapel Street in South Yarra.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
Shopping on Chapel Street has been given a new meaning at Pawn & Co, a thrift shop and bar that needs to be seen to be believed. Found high above Chapel Street, this bar may be the only place in the world where everything is for sale. From the furniture down to the glassware, owners Steve Wools and Josh Lefers of Big Dog Creative have proven that everything has a price. At Pawn & Co the interiors are nostalgic for the Prohibition-era, with an old-school wooden bar, velvet booths and tens of books lining the shelves, all ingeniously cut away to make room for a flask – which is for sale, of course.

With a room that is as much about the selling as it is the drinking, the menu is based on bites that can travel. Meatballs here are the order of the day, to be eaten separately or made into sliders, but with flavour combinations like Jamaican chicken; pork and apple; and double-bacon cheeseburger, it may be difficult to settle on just one. Just save some room for the ice-cream balls too. Each dish can be paired with a shot suggestion but for a taste of something a little more unusual try the cocktail list, which even features some creations made with absinthe. With regularly scheduled auctions organised to sell their wares, Pawn & Co offers the perfect escape from reality - just don’t let the green fairy do the bidding for you.
