For over 12 years, The Black Pearl has been dishing out top-notch banter and high-quality, creative drinks at a rate that belies the cramped space behind the bar. (This is high-volume, rough and tumble bartending.) At heart this is a neighborhood bar where the regulars are royalty, so ordering a Jack and Coke will get you anything but a sneer. And as one of the only bars in the city open seven days a week until 3 a.m., The Pearl is where you’ll find Melbourne’s chefs, waiters and bartenders hanging out after midnight.
