Green Park has many faces. During the day, it’s a family friendly breakfast spot with big windows that let the sun stream in. At night, it’s a warm neighbourhood bar, with wine, cold vermouth and charcuterie served at the long bar counter.
With a colour scheme of forest green and dark timber, designers Eades & Bergman found a way to make what was previously a food hall (when the site was St ALi North) into something distinctly intimate. There are stools at the bar, tables for two, tables for groups, a raised communal table and a series of comfortable, jade-green leather booths.
With a kitchen headed by Howard Stamp (ex-Movida and Le Bon Ton), breakfast is diverse. It features egg dishes and a refreshingly thoughtful kid’s menu (yogurt and stewed apples with chia seed).
Bar snacks reflect the territory co-owner Jesse Gerner – who also owns Bomba and Ãnada – feels at home with: Spanish terrines, cured meats, croquettes, ceviche. The menus change often, so try not to get attached.
The coffee menu is overseen by Kyle Maharaj (ex-Twenty & Six Espresso, Nora), who sources beans from some of Melbourne's very best - Small Batch, Seven Seeds and Clark St Coffee. The incredible pastry selection also rates a mention - it's all made in-house.
