The Silverlake Social
198 Chapel Street, Prahran
This new Melbourne bar comes from the brothers behind The White Oaks Saloon, Thomas and Nicholas Welch, and Byron Barrowclough. Taking the LA neighbourhood of Silver Lake for their inspiration, Silverlake Social offers “a carefully collated spectrum of American anthems, craft beers, fresh cocktails and American-famed sports,” they say. So expect classic American dishes like buffalo wings and burgers and a 16-strong cocktail list that ranges from a reinterpreted Cape Cod cocktail and their take on the Long Island Iced Tea, the Electric Adios M.F. Iced Tea.
The added bonus? There’s a pool table to while away the hours.
