- THE SPACE
Port Bar is a multi-functional venue that serves as a meeting lounge or breakout room for events during the day and a laid back, cozy and relaxing bar in the evening.
Once you’ve entered, you’ll be surprised by how much personality the space has. Port Bar will immediately draw you in with its warm, inviting and cozy vibe. It’s one of those bars that doesn’t feel too intimidating to check out. You can even have coffee mid-day and lounge by yourself without feeling out of place. Then transition to dinner, and later go on a chill late-night cocktail session. All in one place, all in the same space — and it works!
Opening Bar Hours:
- Monday to Friday: 4:00 pm until late
- Saturday & Sunday: 2:00 pm until late
2. THE FOOD
One of the best things about Port Bar is, it’s not just all about bar chow. Their menu features a wide variety of food choices, so you’re sure to find something that will fill you up and also have something to munch on till late hours.
They serve Rustic Paddle Pizzas; paying homage to Melbourne’s Lygon Street where family recipes are handed down from generation to generation. Their pizzas have a sourdough base giving you that nice crunchy and chewy crust.
We tried their Quattro Formaggi Pizza. It is a four cheese pizza with mozzarella, cheddar, parmesan and blue cheese. Yum!
If burgers are your thing, Port Bar has a great selection! They have Shrimp, Chori, Fried Chicken, Pulled Pork and Classic Beef Burgers! Their burgers are hefty in size and is served with thick-cut fries and salad on the side.
What we tried out was their Aussie Beef Burger. It has brioche buns, beetroot, fried egg, pineapple, maple bacon, jalapeno aioli, house-made pickled cucumber and American cheddar. Really good! If you’re vegan, they also have Plant Based Burgers. (+ points for inclusivity!)
- THE SWEET TREATS
If you’re a dessert person, you’ll love their selection of sweets. For a bar? They have a wide variety of great desserts to choose from. Whether you want ice cream, a chocolate chunk cookie skillet or even vegan brownies? Yeap! They have it! Port Bar has something for everyone.
What we tried was the Fudgy Vegan Brownies. Made with Malagos chocolate from Davao, flax seed, apple cider vinegar and vanilla! It’s delicious as well as so beautifully presented. Since it’s a vegan brownie, it gives you less guilt but full satisfaction. So, go ahead and order that brownie!
4. THE COCKTAILS (of course!)
Port Bar Signature Cocktails? The best. Port Bar takes pride in serving some of the most interesting cocktails in town. They have an extensive cocktail menu and are known for their creative take on classical cocktails. The bartenders even puts on a show when making these signature concoctions.
Guests can also enjoy the finest range of local, international and craft beers as well as amber spirits including whiskeys, cognacs and dark rums from around the world.
If you don’t know what to order, their friendly bartenders and staff are there to help you. What we tried was their Signature Cocktail named The Port. It’s a mixture of Fundador Light, homemade spice syrup, fresh lemon juice and ginger ale.
The mixture brings out spicy, smoky and citrusy tasting notes that’s well blended together, making every sip so full of depth of flavor! It’s an unusual mix of flavors but undeniably, a really good drink, and the preparation of the cocktail is an experience on its own. Definitely a must see & try.
5. LIVE MUSIC, GAMES & THE PEOPLE
Port Bar is a great place to hang out.
There’s live music, they have a pool table where you and your friends can play billiards while you dine and drink, and they have friendly staff to keep you company. We heard they’re planning to add more fun activities such as foosball and darts — more activities, more fun and more memories to make!
