$A40 and under
Modern Australian
Paying tribute to its lively past, Alexander Bar is named after the original owner of the hotel first built on the site in the 1880s. This was reincarnated in 1926 as The Hotel Alexander. Alexander Bar is now the elegant ground floor attraction at The Savoy Hotel Little Collins, infused with a rich history. Famous guests could once be found here during the jazz-era and beyond, sipping on cocktails while listening to the easy sounds of crooners sharing the scene.

The space has recently been refurbished in a contemporary Art Deco design, honouring its origins. The bar, encased in marble, showcases bold geometric patterned carpets, linear angled pillars, full length mirrors, and classic tray ceilings, complemented by soft lighting.

    Menu was not as advertised, with a very poor selection available. If this was shown at the time of booking, I would have gone elsewhere. Then items on the reduced menu weren't even available with the snapper replaced with Barramundi. Drinks order was messed up twice, with the wrong beer served. Seated right next to another couple when the restaurant was mainly empty so a bit of privacy was available.

    Made a reservation for 4 pm on Christmas no one was in the bar, they assigned Mr seating that looked uncomfortable. Since no one was in the bar, I sat in better seating. Ordered the oysters and roast turkey off the Christmas menu. Oysters were phenomenal- a must. Roast turkey was dry. Turkey had roasted potatoes and salad. Service was excellent

    I tried to reach out privately but did not receive a reply. I frequent the bar as I loved the ambience and service. As far as catching up with with friends is concerned it is an amazing spot. But this evening, I was met with disappointment- I was denied a seating spot I usually would sit at when there was 2 of us, the reason given was “the spot is reserved for only 6 people or more”. We were instead placed on the side close to the doors and they’ve also later seated some other customers next to us (that made it feel cramped) instead of spreading it out. Lastly, immediately after we finished our meal, a waitress came over and said “do you want your bill now?”. The restaurant was not packed and it was not near to closing time either. It really baffled us. I was really embarrassed as it was suppose to be a farewell meal for the mentioned friend. I loved the service before this and was always proud to bring friends and family over for a catch up, but this experience changed my confidence about the bar. I hope the bar takes note as it was previously one of my favorite places to frequent, and I would love for that to be the way it was again.

    Signature cocktail list is not appealing, ordered cocktail was missing main ingredients, no popular Gin’s, out of stock of only bottle wine we preferred, wine’s by the glass to last century, food missing half the ingredients, offered personal touch chilli and delivered sauce out of a bottle, not a great experience overall and walked out.

    The Alexander BarResponded on 17 June 2022Thank you for taking the time to review us. We believe that we were able to provide you a detailed explanation of the service you received whilst communicating with you directly and object that you did not receive what you ordered. As a venue, we are very proud of our product and service and rely on regular patronage from guests who appreciate our offerings. Unfortunately, this does not seem to be the case with your visit. We are sorry that we were not able to meet your expectations.

    We attended Mother’s Day High Tea at Savoy. Jerrad was our host and made our entire experience amazing. He was so friendly and the service from him was excellent The food was plentiful and yummy. The chef came out to check we had enjoyed the experience and went above and beyond with dietary requirements. Thank you to Jerrad and the team at Savoy

    Great service and perfect for having a quiet pre-dinner drink. Not a huge range of beers to choose from, but service and overall experience made up for it. Will definitely be back

    Food was served cold. The quantity of the cooked breakfast with the lit was very mean and it was so small Everything tasted fine but wanted to send it back for hot food but as it was a special occasion we didn’t want to have an upset
