Blute’s Bar and Lucky Egg – Opening Soon
The teams behind Black Bear Lodge and Lucky Egg have a new joint project in the works, Blute’s Bar, set to open in the Brunswick Street Mall directly underneath Black Bear in March. Blute’s Bar is bringing back old-school pub vibes, reminiscent of a 1980s watering hole. The 350-patron capacity venue will be offering a comfortable setting and a new live-music option to punters, with free gigs from original outfits and cover bands featuring throughout the week, as well as fixtures from some of the big American sporting codes on big screens. The bar will boast 14 taps pouring a selection of mostly Australian beverages, plus a solid list of accessible wines. The kitchen at Blute’s Bar will be pumping out pub staples such as chicken or eggplant parmies, and brunch on weekends (hello, chicken and waffles). Famed fried-chicken outlet Lucky Egg will be opening a new spot next door, serving its signature array of morsels and its own beef burger, all of which will be available at Blute’s, and new arrivals such as juices, smoothies, light breakfast offerings exclusively at Lucky Egg.
