About Seamstress Restaurant & Bar

Climb the rickety stairs and escape the bustle of Melbourne’s city streets at Seamstress Restaurant & Bar on Lonsdale Street. Housed in a 120-year-old former textile factory, warehouse and one-time Buddhist monastery, this multi-purpose hot spot boasts a sleek cocktail bar inspired by clubs of yesteryear with a soundtrack of jazz and blues, while the dining room rocks a rustic vibe of exposed brick, natural light and polished wood floors. With a signature dry Martini in hand, peruse a share plate menu offering tempters such as duck betel leaves, with roasted peanuts, Balinese sambal, coconut cream and dried shallots; or roasted pork belly, cos lettuce and ssamjang pineapple salsa. For a divine sweet treat, opt for peanut and mango chocolate brownie, white chocolate mousse and orange sauce.
