Fabulous Friday..The Merrywell @ Crown

The-Merrywell_2728

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.

The Merrywell - 1200g Caveman Steak with Onion Rings and Sauces - KARON PHOTOGRAPHY.jpg-534x286

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…

Weekend Round Up..What I Wore To Work It and Beyond…

Thud!

I feel like I’ve just run the entire softball pitch diamond in heels and then skidded straight into home base…..Exhausted but jubilant…What a week..again..

Monday: My office is crazy busy right now and I’m holding a gazillion meetings with clients and design reps all day every day…so I wore…the $25 Cotton On Pleather ‘squeak when I walk’ pants..Knee high Black suede Nine West Stiletto Boots..bought at the outlet in Hawaii for the bargain price of $45… (Gotta love a shoe porn bargain)..teamed with my recent Guess purchase… this seasons pale gold metallic knit and a vintage Chanel Navy and Ivory Motif scarf…Love a scarf…they are the dress up add on that never fails to impress…

Wednesday: I wanted to try my hand at a corporate look…and there is no better combo than the ‘ol black n white. I wore last seasons Black Stilt Skinny leg pants, a cream silk shirt from Country Road, A Fleur Wood black jacket , my Indian cashmere Latte and Grey scarf..a new black Patent skinny belt from Target and the House of Harlow ’70’s round black and gold peepers..bought on Sunset Blvd a few years back..

Friday Night: My brother flew in from out of town and so it was time to get the weekend on…and it was on like donkey kong…Champagne at The Smith, Moscow Mules at Saigon Sally, and tequila shots in da club 161…knowing all too well how this night would go down..I decided to channel a recent Duran Duran film clip and throw on my new Emerald green cropped fur jacket from Guess…I love this jacket..Its full midlife crisis rock star…This jacket has to be worn with the skinniest leg that you can fit in to..I wore black Witchery Lacquered jeans, Witchery snake skin stiletto, a black sheer Witchery shirt..Husk Gold and Green oversized earrings…and I added another pop of colour with my orange Ted Baker belt…Big jacket..Big fun night..Big slow day after…

Saturday Night: Time to back it up and go 2 for 2..Dinner was booked at the fabulous opulent Italian Ristorante Rosetta at Crown Towers and fabulous it was… my brother, my good friends and my man…Perfect combo…A great excuse to dress up …I chose Black Satin Palazzo Pants from Tengdahl teamed with an Ivory Zara sheer shirt, a bronze and gold diamonte necklace and Black and Clear suede Louboutins…Very Casino Royale for a night in the city…

…Is the weekend over all ready??…I need a breather …
