Gertrudes Brown Couch
Open: Tue-Thu 3pm-late, Fri-Sat 3pm-1am
Check this out. Good wine - yep. Crisp tap beer - tick. A range of local and imported stubs - damn straight! Cocktails - ooh la la! What else do you want? Okay, it's got food as well. Not only this, the upstairs room is an ideal space for parties, launches, bands and performances big and small. Located "at the other end of Gertrude Street" the new owner/operators of the re-titled Gertrude's Brown Couch have fashioned a comfy and relaxed house-style setting. In this street level bar (a dying breed in Melbourne) you'll find communal booths, a stand up bar, a sly love-booth, a swish lounge room, an evolving Atrium and a spanking sun drenched courtyard. Oh, yeah, and lots of brown. Let's not forget the brown. Hungry, or just settling in? The snack & share menu with stuff like nachos, pizza, dips and other snacks will be as relevant in the morning as it is in the evening when the booze munchies kick in. Life can be thirsty work - quench it at Gertrude's Brown Couch.
