The new Bond Melbourne set to shine as the city’s most glamorous event space and entertainment venue.
The venue recently received a $5 million facelift which has resulted in a luxurious venue complete with decadent gold-coloured brass curtains, gold-studded lounges and gold lighting, curated by leading design company Hachem.
Devoid of dark corners but with its own mysterious edge, Bond Melbourne’s unique design space is completely curved, from the bars and fittings, to the walls, roof and retractable curved glass door, creating a flowing space that can be opened up as one area or elegantly divided into seven private and intimate sections.
We loved toasting to the end of another working week at Bond Bar in one of their booths where waiters and waitresses, elegantly dressed in black wafted around the moodily lit area delivering seamless service.
One of the main highlights from our evening at Bond Bar was indulging in their Liquid Nitrogen cocktails. A new menu feature, the Liquid Nitrogen cocktails are a first for the drinks industry in Melbourne.
Mixologist extraordinaire Jack Coombes entertained us with his skilful making of the classic Amaretto Sour but with a liquid nitrogen twist.
We enjoyed the theatre of clouds of smoke overflowing from the bucket, quickly revealing a “sorbet” of sorts.
The proof really is in the tasting - it was delicious.
We also enjoyed delicious canapés throughout the night of our visit. Hammer & Tong caters exclusively for major events at Bond while an array of rotating restaurants offer catering for the weekly Friday Bond Unwind sessions.
A new Melbourne institution, unlike any seen before. Bond Melbourne brings a new level of luxury with mix of LA-style service and Dubai-style glamour.
