Part wine bar, part furniture store: Le Plonc opens in Melbourne
Greg Natale has unveiled his latest restaurant design project – Le Plonc wine bar – a must for lovers of top drops and boutique shops.
Internationally acclaimed interior designer Greg Natale is known for his bright colours and rich textures, having won numerous accolades across the USA and his native Australia. His latest project is the Le Plonc wine bar in Melbourne’s Armadale. Housed in a 107-year-old building that was originally a theatre – and which also enjoyed stints as a toy factory and indoor ski slope since – what makes this space especially unique is the fact that guests can purchase every piece of furniture in the bar.
Located inside the furniture boutique James Said, Le Plonc showcases the brand’s furniture and lighting, offering shoppers a relaxing corner to sip on a glass or two while also enjoying the navy upholstery, timber floors and fluted wall treatments – creating an intimate date venue that also functions as a shop.
In addition to wines by the glass and bottle, Le Plonc serves food, from entrees of oysters, cheese plates, kingfish carpaccio and beef tartare to roasted duck confit, black truffle ravioli and chilli garlic langoustine mains.
This is the third location for Le Plonc, who already has locations in Silicon Valley’s Sunnyvale and Mountain View.
