THE LONG ROOM
Ballarat’s newest, sophisticated place to meet. Located upstairs, at 17 Lydiard Street South, Ballarat The Long Room Bar at Her Majesty’s is now open on Friday nights from 5.00pm until 8.30pm.
The Long Room serves a select range of spirits, wines and cocktails designed to excite the palate.
Enjoy the proprietary Spiced Bar Nuts, a secret recipe refined over the years, to accompany and compliment a range of elegant cocktails made with the finest of ingredients as well as excellent single malt whiskey and a selection of the finest wine of the region.
Our Gin and Vodka are both from the Chase Distillery in Herefordshire, UK, and are exclusive to The Long Room. Made from estate-grown apples (Williams Chase Gin) or potaotes (Chase Vodka) these two spirits are some of the best you’ll find. To accompany, we also have Tyrrell’s Crisps. Now produced in the Yarra Valley from Australian single-variety potatoes, these amazing crisps were originally made on the Chase farm as a reaction to a reduction in price for British potatoes. By value-adding making the world’s most delicious crisps, the family farm survived the downturn to become a powerhouse in food and spirit production.
Rounding out the selection we have Starward Single Malt Whisky from Essendon Fields in Melbourne, Makers Mark Bourbon and a select range of wines from Fowles wine including 490o Frizzante, Are You Game Pinot Gris and Stone Dwellers Pinot Noir Sparkling.
The elegant and sophisticated atmosphere of the bar is the perfect place to relax, unwind and prepare for the weekend.
In the coming weeks The Long Room will feature wine and whisky tastings, live music and other events to entice.
