The beverage program has a strong focus on locally brewed, grown and sourced product; the beer selection will feature boutique Australian breweries, such as Bonehead, Jetty Road, Young Henrys and Better Beer, with 75% of the wines coming from local producers.

“My background has been completely focused on cocktail bars, so I am thrilled with this unique opportunity,” said Gualdi.

“Our aim is to bring the same level of quality you’d find in Australia’s best bars to the drinks offering at Amphlett House. We are lucky to have access to some incredibly progressive Australian and international producers, both in the alcoholic and non-alcoholic categories, and we look forward to showcasing quality, local produce in a welcoming setting.”

Curley said the the food concept for Amphlett House will be “elevated pub dining”.

“I’ve loved this part of Melbourne for many years and am looking forward to serving up humble fare with big flavours in the Paris end of town,” he said.
