“Don't go here”
Reviewed August 31, 2008

We went for a quiet drink one night on the basis of some of the rave reviews about this place.

The service from all three (pretentious young female) staff was aloof and positively unhelpful.

And of course, why would anyone in their right mind pay $9 for a bowl of roasted nuts so small that it could only fit about 15 mixed nuts into?!?? What a rip off!!! And forget about all the other nibbles on the menu if you are thinking about supper at the so-called Supper Club. Everything is so ridiculously expensive/over-priced that you would never be able to eat dinner again...only a tiny snack called supper.

Oh yes. And they make you wait forever on their dingey staircase and out the front door. There is nowhere reasonable to wait.

We vowed never to go there again. Poor service. Poor value. We really cannot understand why so many people rave about it.

“Laid-back and luscious”
Reviewed June 20, 2008

As the name implies, this is really a 'late night' venue.

The waiting staff are very friendly.

You may not always obtain a seat, such is this venue's popularity, especially after 2300 at night.

Pleasant food, an exceptional wine list - but most of all, this place 'has it' even if 'it' (ambience) is difficult to explain sometimes.

A 'stayer' in Melbourne's overcrowded hospitality industry, my tip is that this venue will be around for many years yet.

“Unique Atmosphere, great wine list and cheese platter”
Reviewed May 9, 2006

If you want to visit a place which has got a wine list of over 80 pages, this is it. You might think you are not going up the right set of stairs, but keep going. The Supper Club is like many of the other fantastic places in Melbourne which are tucked away in obscurity.

Upstairs, you will find old furniture, subdued lighting, a smoke filled room, and lots of people stopping by for a quick bite and a drink. You must also try the cheese platter - the creamiest around! I was there at 1.00am and I first couldn't find a place to sit down.

Just go and soak up the atmosphere. You won't regret it.
