Bars with live music
Enjoy traditional American fare at its best at this casual gastro-pub, run by two globetrotting chefs from the US, Grant MacPherson and Sam DeMarco. Downstairs is the popular burger bar, while you can head upstairs for more formal fare that is the chefs' reinterpretation of classic dishes, many designed to be shared.
The Merrywell is renowned for its selection of juicy burgers, as well as a cocktail list that rivals the best bars in Melbourne. The downstairs burger bar is very popular with those who enjoy a convivial atmosphere with friends, where good food washed down with great beer is the order of the day. Aside from juicy burgers, diners enjoy garden fresh salads and daily specials.
Upstairs is not only a more formal affair, it's a great place for celebrations. And if the weather is good, head for the terrace that offers spectacular city views. Food at The Merrywell is based on the chefs' travels around America, and their penchant for reinventing classic favourites. This happy combination has drawn the crowds since they opened, and keeps diners coming back time and again.
