POW Kitchen Brings
Southern Asian Soul
to the Bandroom

Asian muse. Bandroom fuse. Melbourne Pub Group unveils POW Kitchen & Bandroom.

St Kilda’s mightiest mezzanine, the Bandroom Balcony at Prince Of Wales, has bounced into Southern Asian sub-terrain. Give a disco hello to POW Kitchen.

This oriental overturn, which sees the plus-sized POW personality infused with Southern Asian soul, spells Summer flings with Singapore Slings, sunset sessions with vinyl concessions, and club nights with flavour-full bites.

Executive Chef Daniel Hawkins and Head Chef Woosun Choi are turning out the tricks, offering 20+ Asian inspired dishes for you to divvy between your pals. Get ‘licky licky’ with eats including Ya’an original ‘bang bang’ chicken, ‘crisp crisp’ school prawns or the ‘sticky sticky’ short ribs.

Never a group to take licks lightly, the drinks menu will be loving you long time (and vice versa): 24 brews from the tap or tin; 28 wines by glass, bottle or barrel; and 14 cocktails, me-so-single serve or pitcher-perfect. Soakings come in the form of sours, slings and slushies, with rum a favourite to lace the lips. Garnishes pinched from the kitchen include Viet mint, Thai basil, Dragonfruit and West Indian spiced syrup.

Design firm Six Degrees, whose previous collaborations with Melbourne Pub Group include architecturally-award-winning Newmarket Hotel, have once again transformed a St Kilda icon.

Authentic flavours from broad-stroke Southern Asia. Curb-side prices. A passport-proud (aka. plenty) selection of beers on tap, cocktails and wine. Bandroom-boom entertainment…

…St Kilda sessions just got interesting.
