After going through numerous reincarnations since its opening as the Italian Working Men's Club in 1925, Society has been reborn once more under the experienced eye of the DiMattina Group – hospitality managers who have shown a flair for sensational Italian dining in their thriving restaurants all over Melbourne. Lively, lavish interiors celebrate the building's history, and lets Society impress local aficionados as well as curious visitors looking for a memorable night out in Melbourne.
Upstairs from the bright, airy dining area awaits Society's vampy evening cocktail area. The High Society Bar offers dimly lit nooks and seductive sofas where patrons can relax and indulge in an aperitif or two. The Secret Society lounge is even more swish, offering an eclectic vintage-style space in which to enjoy intimate conversations and laughs late into the night.
FOOD & BEVERAGE
Gourmet Italian classics are executed with contemporary flair at Society. Start off meals with tempting antipasti dishes, such as the terrine of cured salmon, tuna and braised fennel served with squid ink crostini, then move onto hearty pasta and risotto, meaty main courses and delicious desserts. The food is accompanied by an excellent wine local and imported list which offers drops by the glass or carafe, as well as an extensive range of cocktails.
