“Mootee Bar is a unique, homegrown experience with a personal and passionate story to tell. From the moment you walk in the door, the beat of Africa will fill your heart. And at the core of our belief system is people – the people of Mootee and the people who visit Mootee. The whole Mootee Bar vibe has been carefully curated to provide an unforgettable experience, yet in a space where you feel comfortable enough to think you were at home! – Denzel Heath. ”

“The Idea of The Lonely Hearts Club is even cooler then the interior. Basically, singles are encouraged to pop in, order a cocktail at the bar and have a chat to the friendly barmen…and perhaps… meet another lonely heart in the process. The drinks, cocktails and wine options are incredible! This hip little spot is situated in a landmark building that’s one of Melville’s oldest shops (so cool!), they play a soundtrack of 80s music and the interior of the restaurant is decorated to feel like a sophisticated living area in a fancy mansion. ”

“A quirky little place to have a casual drink and some small dishes vaguely Asian in flavour. It's under the same ownership (and connected to) the Tiny Tiki Bar; both menus are available at both places. ”
