Melbourne's Belgian Beer Café Bluestone, St Kilda Road, and the Belgian Beer Café Eureka, Southbank, are unofficial embassies of Belgium and promote Belgian culture, beer and cuisine in an authentically Belgian environment.
At the Belgian Beer Cafés Melbourne, which are renowned for steaming mussel pots served with frites and house made mayonnaise along with Belgian waffles, you can find five draught Belgian beers: Stella Artois, Hoegaarden, Leffe Blonde, Leffe Brune and Belle-Vue Kriek. A unique nine step pouring ritual ensures the perfect pour.
The Belgian Beer Cafés Melbourne are popular with corporates for lunches, dinners, after work drinks and functions, in addition to visitors to Melbourne and locals, who enjoy the live music on the Sundays.
Since 2003, the owners of the Belgian Beer Café Bluestone have managed Ormond Hall - a beautifully restored Art Deco hall located next door to the Belgian Beer Café Bluestone and within the grounds of Vision Australia (the former Royal Victorian Institute for the Blind - RVIB).
Built in 1891 and remodelled in the 1920s, the hall was originally established as a music hall for the blind, and has since been used as a dance and live music venue.
Now fully refurbished with:
* new sound and lighting equipment
* wide music and theatrical stage
* a movie screen
* an authentic European bar
* private courtyard.
Ormond Hall has officially made its comeback offering patrons all that
it used to be and much more.
The hall caters for a variety of needs, tastes and budgets including:
* corporate events
* private functions
* musical performances, including cabaret
* film screenings
The hall has also been sought out for photo shoots and television commercials.
Ormond Hall acts as the function facility of the Belgian Beer Café Bluestone and is able to provide the same menus and selection of Belgian beers.
Ormond Hall was recently the venue for Split Enz's press conference to announce their Australian tour.
