UPDATE: The Stokehouse is now fully booked until end of March 2017. Bookings will re-open for April onwards.
The Stokehouse is now taking bookings for summer.
The St Kilda institution’s upstairs fine-dining restaurant will be open for its first full day of service on Friday December 9, and is taking bookings for that date until the end of March next year – except for Christmas Day.
With floor-to-ceiling windows all the way around, the restaurant has panoramic beach views and room for 130 diners. Unlike its previous incarnation, it also takes walk-ins at the huge new bar – a 12-and-a-half-metre oval that straddles the restaurant space and an indoor terrace with an open roof.
Daily 12pm–3pm, 6pm–late
