About us

After 16 years of trade on Flinders Lane, Melbourne, The Purple Emerald Lounge Bar has relocated, opening its doors to the wonders of High Street, Northcote – and it hasn’t changed a bit!

This iconic gem was a long time favourite for Melbourne’s CBD twenty-somethings. Renowned for its live funk and soul fueled entertainment and quirky vintage decor, Purple Emerald has stuck to its roots, keeping to the rustic charm that earned this little treasure it’s iconic status as Melbourne’s hidden gem.

Purple Emerald has raised the bar for cocktail standards in Northcote, dishing up a 6 page menu of  classic cocktails and award winning creations, skillfully prepared by their innovative bartenders.

Tapas are available right through till late, with seriously the best authentic house made arancini you’ve ever tasted!

Local beers and cider on tap, as well as a large range of craft beers. A good range of wines varieties available by the glass or bottle, and seasonally there is an amazing mulled cider to warm up the coldest night.

Purple Emerald is the place to be on a Friday after work. From 9pm till 3am the venue hosts What The Funk Fridays, a night starring the best funk bands and DJs from across Melbourne, truly making it’s transition into the funky nightspot it is renowned for. Check our facebook for the most up to date gig list.

The expansive outdoor area is popular all year round, in Summer boasting DJs, cocktail parties and blue skies, in Winter a fire pit, fairy lights and shelter from the elements.

Beyond the outdoor decking lays the Secret Garden, as its name suggests, it’s a hidden surprise of graffiti and plant-life combined with grungy, retro furniture lit by lanterns. Complete with its own bar, this is a great private spot to indulge in some VIP treatment.

If you’re thinking of having a party with a few or a lot of friends, give us a call. In true Purple Emerald style, we don’t believe in hire fees or cover charges, just good times!

Quite simply one of the most popular Function Venues in Northcote
