Located on the Esplanade in St Kilda, The Hotel Esplanade (The Espy) seaside pub provides a laid back hangout that consists of 5 levels of music, cocktails and food. Each level has a different feel to it so you feel as if you have gone on a pub crawl without leaving the building. Each level of this building is, dare I say it Instagram-able (I threw up in my mouth a bit). If you were looking a a place to capture amazing photos while enjoying a drink with friends this is it. This place had a very classic feel to it which made me feel as if I was on set of an old school movie. As for the drinks they have a great selection of beers,wines and ciders swell as cocktails with their own spin on them.
They had a small menu for food there, I didn’t eat anything there – because we were eating elsewhere later. I got to enjoy a delicious Pina Colada while in the green room. The cocktail definitely dangerous for me I was so tasty I slammed that Mother down so quickly, It was creamy but not and fruity but it didn’t feel sickening to drink (I had one, 5 might make me sick who knows) but it was good and they didn’t scrimp on the alcohol which I’ve notice some places have done with cocktails, making it essentially a mocktail.
Seriously check this place out, I didn’t find this place really expensive the prices were fairly standard for a bar. Its a great place to go with your friends for a few drinks and they also have live music. It s a place that can be great for day and night drinks. Ive included the website for you to check out.
Ok small disclaimer here. I don’t have an issue with people taking photos at places they are going, that’s fine. It’s when people just go to places solely for an instagram photo and that’s it.
