If you dream of sipping cocktails in an Avant-garde environment that feels like David Lynch meets Hunter S. Thompson on holiday in Koh Phi Phi, whilst listening to a sexy twist on everything, you are here.
The historic Carlton Hotel was transformed by Tracey Lester 6 years ago into not only one of the best bars in Melbourne also one of the top ten bars in Australia. Tracey has revolutionized pubs in Melbourne by bringing to life a stale, old industry with a fresh, modern approach in design and aesthetic.
On the inside, the booths, bar and dining room offer a plush, velvety, flossed, romantic atmosphere, which contrasts the surreal backdrop of the CBD against a tropical paradise.
The Carlton not only caters for a diverse crowd but also for a variety of needs. Be it a Corporate Function Space or Party Venue, dinner date or cocktails on a breezy sunset afternoon on a rooftop bar in Melbourne, we have it all, so why shouldn’t you?
“The crowd here can be quite wonderful, almost like a surprise packet of mixed lollies: you might see a few suits quenching a hard-earned thirst, the hipster crowd enjoying the irony of the stuffed ostrich, and a couple of drag queens at home amongst the flamboyance.”
