There’s a new addition to the bar scene in inner-city Melbourne, and this one is located 24 levels above ground on top of Goldfields House.

Beverly is the work of Cameron Northway (Rocker, LOTI, Sweet & Chilli), who has teamed up with Marco Gattino and Lachlan Thompson for the launch of the venue which features 270-degree views covering the Yarra River to Port Melbourne Bay.

Former Glass House and Le Manoir aux Quat Saisons chef David Ball is heading up the kitchen and has designed menu that highlights produce at the peak of its season.

“I’m excited to combine things I’ve learnt across my career to experiment with subtle differences in both texture and flavour,” he says. “The hero for the whole menu puts sustainability and fresh produce above all.”

The menu is split into snacks, small and large plates as well as sides and desserts, with guests invited to pop in for oysters with grapefruit ponzu and pickled ginger and pulled duck and caviar sliders or settle in for a multi-course meal.

Highlights include prawn ceviche and duck liver pate and there’s also a protein-centric section on the menu with options spanning pasture-raised chicken with aji salsa as well as Wagyu eye fillet and flat iron.

Cocktails form a key part of the beverage offering, as does Australian biodynamic and organic wines.

Bartenders have riffed classics including the Bellini which is made with Moet, Campari and peach puree, while the Goldfields sees Pampero Anejo Especial mixed with Conintreau, Frangelico and tonka bean with honey.

Beverley is open Tuesday from 4pm and from 12pm Wednesday to Sunday until late.
