Melbourne CBD, Melbourne, Victoria


Any bar that describes itself as a "disco eating house and beer hall" is bound to make its patrons happy. Cookie somehow manages to fuse beer hall, cocktail bar and modern Thai restaurant with flair. The bar stocks a plethora of micro-brews and 350 different wines, plus, a hidden corner bar pours an endless stream of innovative cocktails. Cookie is smack-bang in the middle of the city, but transports you to a cooler plane, with its pastiche of French doors, Juliet balconies and manga inspired murals.

When I have guests in town, I take them to Cookie first time, every time. The heady aroma of Thai, the hum and din of humanity, the impressive wine, beer and cocktail lists are just the start. That it was the old Communist club adds more weight. Then I take them up. Floor by floor, through Toff, Choo Choo until finally we reach the rooftop vista. I have serious cred amongst my friends just from the reflected glory of Curtin House. Onya Cookie.
