Located in the Theatre District at the top end of the Melbourne CBD, PEARL DIVER underwent a six-month renovation and has emerged a space that plays host to a relaxed but lively crowd from industry, to influencers, theatre goers and week-day city warriors. The 100-seater is divided into comfortable banquets, bar seating, high tops and an impressive, shared table that doubles as a private dining room, featuring an iced oyster-well running its length. Enjoy a fully seated Bistro style dining experience or the perfect afternoon or evening standing canapès and cocktail event.
The Speakeasy Group acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land on which we stand, the Wurundjeri Woi Wurung people, and pay our respects to Elders past and present. We extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
