The Espy St Kilda

The famed Hotel Esplanade St Kilda, fondly known as ‘The Espy’, is a must-see destination, when visiting Melbourne.

Whether you’re after a mouth-watering meal, want to kick back with a beachside cocktail, or rock out to live music; there’s only one place to be – Hotel Esplanade. With five levels of dining, bars, and entertainment, The Espy has something for everyone.

Espy Main Bar

Espy Main Bar serves up your favourite pub classics, stone-baked pizzas, burgers, and a tasty selection of St Kilda seaside snacks. It’s also the best place to take in the amazing views of St Kilda Pier while enjoying a casual drink from our coastal-inspired cocktail menu, specially curated wine list & wide selection of tap beers.








Mya Tiger

Sitting atop The Espy’s grand staircase, Mya Tiger is our fast-paced, flavour-filled Cantonese restaurant dishing up Peking duck, luscious libations and gorgeous sunsets. Inspired by the Chinese cook-shops that sprang up throughout St Kilda during Victoria’s 1850s gold rush era, Mya Tiger will transport you to a whole other era.


Louey’s Bar & Kitchen

Louey’s is our fun and frivolous Italian-American bar & kitchen. Think big eats, big vibes and modern takes on the classics. Look out for the splashes of neon, the luxe red leather booths, and the shiny disco ball that drops from the ceiling when the DJ ups the volume.


Ghost of Alfred Fenton

The Ghost, situated on the secret top floor of The Espy, is our hidden world-class cocktail bar that pays homage to Espy’s most notable resident, Alfred Felton. This immersive, St Kilda historical experience is wonderfully styled with antiques found all around the world and features a cocktail list curated to represent Alfred’s passions. Often called the Ghost Bar.


The Gershwin

The Gershwin Room is the music heart of the Espy. Added to the building in the 1920’s to provide entertainment for the middle class, it became a leading dance and jazz venue. From every era onwards The Gersh has evolved & contributed much to Melbourne’s music scene – from disco in the 70’s to its most iconic grunge era in the 90’s.


Espy Basement

Follow the walls of vintage gig posters down to the Basement, an intimate homage to The Espy’s past and a space to welcome the up and coming, the trying to make it, the talent just waiting for their big break and all the pros that found their start on the Basement stage.
