Madame Brussels for Nicole's

Last night after work, I headed down Bourke Street, to meet Nicole for birthday drinks. I met her, and Belinda and the girls, and soon joined by Lucas, at Madame Brussels, on the third floor above Spaghetti Tree.

After not getting in here for week one of Project 2009, the small area inside made the long line up on a Friday night make sense. A small inside bar area, and then an outside desk - with kitchy chairs and tables, umbrellas, and table service. The waiters wore tennis attire, pastels and all.

The cocktail selection was smaller than I expected, and once we had all selected a jug each, we needed to narrow down our choices again as they were out of some of the list. Nevertheless, pitchers of cocktails in the setting sun, above Melbourne's main street was a very pleasant way to spend the evening.

A cute, relaxed bar with just a sprinkling of people on a Monday night, which was perfect. I can imagine it being crammed madness on a Friday night! Happy Aussie Birthday, Nicole!
