Introducing Old Palm Liquor and other favourites to let loose after lockdown.

Posted by Remodern on

Melbourne’s bars and restaurants are back with a vengeance after a long lockdown, and we’re delighted to revisit our friends and venues with Remodern lighting and furniture. Places like Old Palm Liquor are perfect for overdue catch ups, and of course, throwing your support behind the hospitality industry. Melbourne, we’ve missed you!

Old Palm Liquor

133B Lygon St, Brunswick East VIC 3057

Every night is like Friday night at Old Palm Liquor since it reopened. “Everyone is so happy to be out, and the vibe is ecstatic,” says manager Marc Banytis.

A newcomer to the hospitality scene, Old Palm Liquor opened six months before lockdown, but boy is it humming now. Its wine list is outstanding with low-intervention wines – natural, biodynamic and organic – and many by young winemakers who are experimenting. The beverages are well complemented by the menu, prepared by owner and chef Almay Jordaan. Drawing on her South African heritage, the food is cooked on a braii, fired and grilled to perfection.

Old Palm Liquor is currently offering a two-course set menu with entrée, main and sides to make two-hour dining easy. They have also opened a beer garden next door, accommodating 50 more people. “It’s spring in the air and people are having fun,” says Marc. “They’re enjoying being out for a drink, and the reviews on our food have been phenomenal.”

If good wine and food are your thing, then you can also add good design. Diners at Old Palm Liquor can enjoy sitting in Fameg’s B-110 armchair – one of the original bentwood armchairs dating back to 1895. They’re part of a beautiful fit out with painted brick walls, golden-brown timber, stretched rattan ceilings, and classic padded stools.

Other venues embracing the eased restrictions and featuring Remodern products include: 

St. ALi Coffee Roasters
12-18 Yarra Pl, South Melbourne VIC 3205

You can take a seat in Fameg’s Nopp chair when you grab a coffee at St. ALi. The chair is named for the Swedish word ‘nopp,’ which translates to burling – a rounded outgrowth on the trunk or branch of a tree. Nopp has a small and unobtrusive ball attached to the back leg of the chairs and stool to serves as a hook for hanging your bag or coat.

Featuring Nopp Chairs designed by Buck.Studio for Fameg.

Axil Coffee Roasters
Melbourne Central 211 La Trobe St, Melbourne VIC 3000

When you’re at Axil Coffee Roasters you can pull up a Finn Bar Stool. The stool has subtle hints of mid-century modern design, while Axil Coffee has subtle hints of hazelnut, toffee or dark chocolate, depending on your choice of blend.

Featuring Finn Stools designed by Buck.Studio for Fameg.

Punt Road Winery
10 St Huberts Rd, Coldstream

Need to get away? The Yarra Valley is always a great day trip from the city, and Punt Road is a winery to visit. You’ll find lots of excellent reds, plus m.a.d’s Resonate chair for settling in for the afternoon.

Featuring Resonate Chairs by m.a.d.

Cobaw Ridge Winery
31 Perc Boyers Ln, East Pastoria

If you’re heading away for a few days, stop into Cobaw Ridge Winery on the cusp of the Great Divide. They have full-flavoured wines, and the timeless icon that is Fameg’s Bentwood 18 chair. People have been enjoying wine in this chair since it debuted in the 1800s.

Featuring Chair 18's by Fameg.

The sun is shining, spring has well and truly sprung, it’s time to release that pent-up energy and make the most of our beloved Melbourne.
