Melbourne's Newest Venues

With the Melbourne hospitality landscape ever expanding, it's hard to keep up with all the latest news. Read below for a round up of all the most recent openings that are worth checking out. Side note: There is also a special giveaway for one of the new hotspots!




Quite possibly the most Instagrammable cafe in Melbourne – think flowers, rainbows & gold and in the best way possible. The meaning behind the cafe’s name is a moment to slow down & appreciate the good things in life.


Modern & minimalist with a hint of femininity, Min is a boutique and cafe focused on sustainability, organic yet elegant goods. Breakfast and lunch offer simple dishes that are not only tasty but aesthetically pleasing.


This cosy cafe has made quite the impression in the short amount of time it has been open – sure to be a favourite with its delicious food, coffee and most important…great service. Dukes Coffee roasters and baked goods by Cobb Lane Bakery.


From the team behind Fledgling Espresso is their newest venture, Barlog Espresso with a focus on seasonal and healthy menu but with a couple of sweet options for that cheat meal. Coffee with Inglewood coffee beans and also they have beer, wine and cocktails on the menu.


Definitely, a first for Melbourne, Dari is a Korean sandwich bar offering up carbs with a contemporary twist – think of Bulgogi sandwiches but also creations with potato salad and jam – definitely worth trying for the adventurous or curious.


Okay, technically this one isn’t really brunch but it is worth visiting. Kurimu brings Japanese choux pastry and custard to Melbourne with two flavours to start with…original and strawberry custard creme. Say hello to your new dessert obsession.



Omnia is a European style pop-up, marking the beginning for the Capitol Grand development’s foray into hospitality. Collectively, the team has experience of Vue de Monde, Matilda, Eleven Madison Park, Oter, and Coda under their belts.


Brought to you the brainchilds behind Toji Sake – Eazy Peazy is a modern Japanese eatery with a focus on yakitori and hibachi grilled meats. Imbibe in beer, sake or cocktails, or even better, have a sake based  cocktail.


As its namesake, Oster is a modern Italian eatery run by a team of hosts with a background in fine dining. Loosely structured, simple and seasonal, their menu offers house made pasta, sourdoughs and share plates.

The Japanese charcoal grill restaurant has a beautifully moody interior that reflects Akaitto’s concept – the red thread of fate. The space is divided into shared & private dining experiences as well as a secret bar below.



Opposite White Oaks Saloon, known for its North American fare is Casa Nom which will transport you further South. The Mezcaleria serves up beautiful Latin American cuisine with cocktails, wines and beers from those regions.

Neil Perry’s latest addition is open from 7am to late, as an all-day deli and bar. The primary focus will be on snacks and cocktails – think of the finer things in life such as caviar, oysters, cheese and charcuterie.


Brought to you by Michael & Zara Madrusan of The Everleigh, this new bar & brasserie is open until the early hours 7 days a week.  On offer are cocktails, wine and delicious French food such as tartare and escargot. 


Melbourne sure loves it rooftop bars and Tetto di Carolina, sitting above Bar Carolina, is definitely a welcome addition. Similar to its sister venue, the cocktail bar has an Italian influence on the food and drinks.
