Touch of Class at Le Bar Supper Club
Glam is back in Melbourne with 1920s Paris themed sensation Le Bar Supper Club in Beaumaris. We were invited to experience this gem in Beaumaris.
We were invited on a Wed night and walked in through a nondescript black door to a packed restaurant with a touch of class, that was pumping with dine “dressed to the nines” sitting along the swanky bar and at tables. A diners were even wearing 1920s glam outfits. Live music playing (saxophone) and the romance of the 1920s captured.
Touch of class.
1920s Paris themed bar and chandelier lighting with black and gold decor, stylish chairs and art on the walls, and live entertainment (not every night) were a feature. The last time I experienced glam like this in Melbourne was FOG in Prahran, but I think this takes it further.
The thing is that not only does the concept work, but also the food and wine "stacks up". Our meal was simply outstanding. Cocktails excited with the Why Change Your Wife Kentucky Bourbon cocktail a hit, and my favorite the House of Coke featuring Cognac and Agricola Rum (above) served in a nostalgic coke bottle.
Caviar with Blini from the Antonio’s Siberian Caviar menu was a touch of glam, Herb immersed organic Grande Olives were generous and tasty, Le Conquerant Camembert Frit was a triumph (fried Camembert) and pick of the Hors D’Oeuvres, Imported Anchovies on baguette were delicious, and the Signature Southern Rock Lobster Royale was magnificent (mini lobster burger).
These dishes alone were impressive, and Le Bar Supper Club also caters for a supper crowd (and menu) that like to drink and graze on small dishes late night.

Mains were also a triumph with the Grass-fed Gippsland Angus Eye Fillet perfectly cooked melt in your mouth with Café de Paris butter a highlight, as well as frites. Almondine Crusted King George Whiting was also cooked to perfection and a standout dish, with exceptional lemon caper sauce. Of course we ordered a large bowl of Frites separately and we couldn’t get enough, moorish with Reggiano.
A bottle of Dandelion Shiraz from Barossa hit the spot paired with these dishes.
Dessert also shines with Scorched Espresso Martini Crème Brûlée a showstopper, and the texture and taste of the La Maison du Chocolate Mousse something to savour.
Staff were exceptional, notably the now famous Maitre’d Dina who engages with diners and makes sure everything is ticking over. Our French waiter was also exceptional, and several staff engaged with us in a knowledgeable and friendly manner.
Highly recommended. One of the best nights we’ve had in the last year.
