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 four page menu of both classic and seasonal cocktails, skillfully prepared by their innovative bartenders.
Tapas are available right through till closing time, with seriously the best arancini you’ve ever tried!
Local craft beers on tap, as well as 16 bottled (local and imported) beers & ciders, an ample amount of palate pleasing wines available by the glass or bottle, plus a selection of coffee and tea.
Kicking off Fridays with a four hour long happy hour, Purple Emerald is the place to be on a Friday after work. From 9pm till 3am Purps 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.
The expansive outdoor area is popular all year round, in Summer boasting DJs, cocktail parties and blue skies, in Winter a fire pit, candle light and shelter from the elements.
Beyond the outdoor decking you will find the Secret Garden, as its name suggests an unusual surprise of graffiti and plant-life sets the scene as you perch on grungy, retro furniture lit by lanterns.
The Purple Emerald is a place to come with friends and sip on cocktails, or have a late night boogie on the dance floor under the iconic disco ball.
