It’s all fun and games in Nobby’s right now as the much-loved beachside suburb welcomes long-awaited, new South-East Asian bar and eatery Miss Mee.
Particularly since we are now allowed to frolic in bars (at a safe distance of course), which means rooftops get their literal time in the sun again.
If you ventured past lately, you’ll no doubt have noticed the changes taking place inside the double storey building where our beloved Hellenika once lived.
Well, the newbie (by the crew at Justin Lane) is now open and we’ve got all the details.
The now iconic space is a centrepiece in Nobby’s, eye-catching and loved amongst locals.
Now Miss Mee has moved in, spiced up the decor and more good times are sure to roll.
Entering from the street you’ll be greeted by a glowing, pink neon sign featuring the lady herself.
Off to your left is the downstairs bar and dining area and to the right, a set of alluring neon pink stairs that you know can only lead to fun (and sure to be the backdrop for many an Insta-snap).
The downstairs area is lowlit, featuring neon lights snaking across the ceiling, a cosy pink and white corner with walls that will keep you entertained for days and a huge, stocked bar for all your sipping needs.
Up those pink stairs though is of course the rooftop bar, decked out in black and white gloss tiles, white high tables, a corner area that can be booked for private events with it’s own neon lit bar and a vintage tuk tuk overseeing it all.
The entire space is absolutely packed with colour, quirky neon lights that add plenty of character and absolutely somewhere you’re going to want to spend some time.
To eat, there are of course many a South-East Asian delight including classics like Nasi Goreng, Pad Thai, Massaman Beef, Green Curry and Whole Deep Fried Fish to name a few.
There are also small plates like Bao, Sticky Chicken wings, Satay Chicken Skewers and Salt and Pepper Squid if you’re keen to try a few.
Banquet options mean you only have to choose from five or eight courses for $49 or $69 per person and there’s a vegan choice too.
To drink, there’s an array of Asian-inspired cocktails to sip including a Smoking Singapore Sling, Miss Mee’s Bubble Tea which is a booze-infused version of the beloved drink and a Spicy Lychee Margarita (among many others).
The wine list is extensive and there are both tap and bottled beers if you’re in the market for a frothy (which you are, because it’s been awhile).
If you’re in need of a colour-infused experience that also includes tasty eats and a unique beverage or two, you’re in luck. Your new mate Miss Mee has you covered.
Pop in this weekend for a long-awaited rooftop jaunt with the crew.
