  • An elgant slice of Melbourne history. Make sure you have a drink with Chloe, the famous naked lady portrait in the upstairs bar. You can have an express dinner in Chloe's dinning room between 5.30 to 6.30pm: bread, choice of main course, a small sweet treat and a choice of wine, a beer or cider and tea or coffee at the end of your meal all for $34 per person. All served in an elegant dinning room. Incredible value to dine in style for a truly unique Melbourne experience.
  • As someone from Tassie, Young & Jackson sure impressed! Seeing the copper tank beer setup was impressive and it was nice to learn the history of the place: it's place in Australia's wartime history and the story of the naked woman painting which resides as part of the Heritage Register in Young & Jackson. Staff were incredibly professional and friendly: never had a single problem pop up during my visit and if there had have been one, I have confidence problems would be resolved appropriately. Their meals are great (try the Scotch fillet!) but make sure you come in early since they're quite popular for a reason. Definitely a place to try at least once (and probably keep visiting)!
