Meet Hightail, your newest CBD watering hole. It’s a modern eatery featuring the likes of Mr. Burger, Belle’s Hot Chicken, and Super Taco with a side of jungle flair!
We got to check the whole thing out at Hightail’s Launch Party. It was an exotic affair. A peacock Brazilian dancer greeted guests at the door, balancing two platters full of fruity cocktails. We met a snake tamer (snake in tote, of course), and mingled among a sea of wildly dressed jungle beings (the dress code for the night).
It’s hard to imagine all of this is located in the heart of Collins Square – one of Melbourne’s most prominent business complexes. Hightail is a welcome addition and good distraction from the plethora of coffee shops and cafes in CBD office buildings. It brings spunk, attitude, and plenty of comfort food to an otherwise serious corporate atmosphere.
Brace yourself for burgers galore, piping hot crispy chicken, and loaded nachos – just a few of the options on tap at the new eatery. It’s got a fully stocked bar and food options from Mr. Burger, Belle’s Hot Chicken, and Super Taco. The space is sprawling with intimate table seating, a larger cafeteria style area, and an outdoor area. Feeling antisocial after a long day at the office? No worries, you can order food and drinks from the comfort of your table through the 100 Orders App. No bartender banter required.
The spunky new bar offers happy hour 3.30-5.30 weeknights with 20% off all drinks. Forget boring Friday afternoons, and hightail your peacock feathers down to Hightail Bar for an exotic food affair.
