Celebrate New Year’s Eve with Bar Margaux! As part of Melbourne Food & Wine Festival’s ‘New Year’s Street Feasts’, Margaux is hosting Le Réveillon.

Le Réveillon, a term used to describe New Year’s Eve in France, loosely translates to ‘the awakening’. Get ready to celebrate our city’s own awakening in true Bar Margaux style: classic French dishes, elegant cocktails, fine wine and great company.

Hosted inside Bar Margaux and along La Ruelle (Bar Margaux’s hidden rear laneway) guests will dine under the stars at long linen-draped tables adorned with floral displays and candles.

Each ticket includes four courses plus paired cocktails and wine. Please don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss any dietary requirements or arrange a non-alcoholic beverage pairing.
