Give it a go!

Upmarket bar and club in the heart of Melbourne CBD. Like most places, women will find it easier to gain entry than men. It does tend to get a bit of an older crowd (i.e. 25-35) but this usually means patrons are well-dressed and well-behaved. Music is typically R&B every time I've been here.

Amazing classy vibe with private booths & a toasty fireplace with a red carpet to the restaurant. Food was good with a lot of choices to pick from (e.g. sushi, dumplings, tapas, mains, dessert) and the extensive cocktails menu kept us girls there for most of the night. Security staff were lovely and took the time to take our group... More

We frequented The Long Room after an invitation by friends. The restaurant was so dark we could hardly read the drinks menu.

Thank you for your honest feedback @Gagnsharn. I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your meal here at Longroom last week. We do aim to please every guest that comes through the door but we do understand that with the high numbers we get coming in for dinner, it is indeed a great challenge to do so. Just a couple...

This place is a new favourite for me! We came as a group of 11 and the only thing I didn't like was that it was hard to read the menu - it's really dark in here...but that adds to the cool vibe of the place! Nice lounge area to sit in,Friendly staff. Great Tapas selecton - my only unfulfilled... More

Came here for my husband’s birthday and it was great. Despite the fact that my husband didn’t have the exact perfect shoes required in the dress code, they gave him a pass considering it was early in the night. The music was good, the drinks were good and the place was huge so you don’t feel suffocated with all the... More

This was a revisit to the Longroom, I had previously dined here in February of this year twice while on business and the food was good. Two of us on business decided to have Tapas since the place was close and I am familiar with the food and location to the hotel. On entering, the place was at a good... More

Recommended by a bouncer at another club... Dressed smart, have the money to spend... Bouncers at the main door have small man syndrome.. Wouldn't bother wasting your time, plenty of other hidden upmarket bars that are classy and want the clientele!

Went with a group of friends on a Thursday night for all you can eat tapas at only around $30 per person. Before 7 pm our glasses of wine were only $5 each. I didn't know what to expect with such cheap prices but it was really quite good. Fast and efficient service and the majority of tapas (we pretty... More

The Long Room is always good for a drink after work and a snack. It's a buzzy lively bar so you can't go wrong if you are looking for atmosphere.
