Fabulous Friday..The Merrywell @ Crown


For some unknown reason these days when I head out for a girls lunch, it ends up being a ladies lunch – slash – dinner. 12 hours is the norm and Wednesday was no different. A group of us had been at the Crown Casino Palladium Room for a charity lunch, and once that was done…we headed to The Merrywell.


Located at the Promenade end of the the Casino complex…the Merrywell has a breathtaking view of the Melbourne city skyline…the fire towers and to be honest..a very Vegas feel. Sitting on the Upper deck overlooking the city, sipping on Mojitos fresh from the jars…you could be anywhere in the world.

Its the newest burger joint in town and it’s full USA. Full heart attack on a plate. Fried macaroni n cheese balls… | To Die For |..fillet of steak with crispy onion rings, mini slider burgers with wagyu beef and bacon aoli…thick cut chips…if its fried…its there. And what better way to finish the day of chilled champagne, salmon entree, and chicken breast mains…than to chug Mojitos and eat sliders…


The actual fit out of this bar / restaurant is pretty cool. Dark timber panels, leather banquette seating around the fire place, quirky cartoon style art in the bathrooms…It’s slightly more upscale than a gastro pub…but slightly less formal  than a full upmarket restaurant common throughout the Crown Complex.


I loved it. I want to go back. On a Friday night when, according to the bar tender, the  tunes are ‘off the chart’ and the bar turns to a mini after work dance off. Sounds like fun…Oh…and those mac n cheese fried balls…yep definitely going back for those mac n cheese balls…
