Joe's Bar and Dining Hall
A welcoming makeover for this old Joe
Joe’s Bar and Dining Hall, previously known as Greasy Joe’s, is a slicker and more sophisticated version of its former self with a new team, new menu and a stylish new fit-out courtesy of Diane Bergeron Interiors.
This place looks like it’s inspired by a New York diner and cocktail bar mixed with a trip to the Hamptons. It’s a contemporary destination where you can relax and enjoy a classy cocktail or a classic burger at the same time.
Unlike anything else you’ll find on this famous Acland Street strip, expect to be charmed at Joe’s with the carefully considered red and white stripes and red one-of-a-kind vintage chairs (sourced on ebay), crisp white-framed photographs of beach life, blonde recycled timbre tables, textured wallpaper panels, leather bench seating and oversized lamps.
Helping to give things a shake up from behind the bar are some of Melbourne’s finest mixologists (including a few ex-Cookie crew). The bespoke cocktail menu features a range of house infusions and homemade syrups, which are used to conjure up drinks like the Mojito Bodeguita, named in honour of Hemmingway’s favourite bar in Havana.
If cocktails aren’t your style, fear not as there is a multitude of expertly selected Australian wines and local brews including Stone & Wood, Mountain Goat and St Kilda Brew to choose from.
Staying true to its roots, Joe’s continues to dish up the finest burgers in Saint Kilda. However, today the expanded menu also includes modern options including Tastes, Seasonal Starters, Slow & Low, Market Salads, Main Courses and Desserts. Be sure to try the popular Pulled Pork Rolls, BBQ Sauce, Apple Chutney & Crackling and Slow Cooked Pork Ribs with Summer Slaw from the Slow & Low menu.
A friendly team with impressive know-how, a stellar location, top-notch drinks and food combined with incredible style is a welcoming makeover for this old Joe.
