It was the old Hollywood film star Mae West who once said: "Let's get out of these wet clothes and into a dry Martini". Which is why it's perfect timing that Melbourne's very first dedicated Martini bar is slated to open in May – just as the weather in this town starts to take a turn. 

The vodka masters at Grey Goose are launching Le Martini – a luxe 33-seater at Crown Melbourne where the bartenders will be serving up nothing but Grey Goose Martinis, albeit in a fun variety of different iterations.

Love a classic? Then you should opt for the signature Martini, which comes with a good slosh of Grey Goose, Noilly Prat dry vermouth and a kiss of orange bitters to round out the drink. 

If you want to branch out, there'll be other ways to enjoy the famous cocktail (yes, including shaken, not stirred), plus plates of elevated French-inspired eats from Crown's Bistro Guillaume to snack on. Designed to ooze timeless glamour with the bar as the centrepiece, this slinky and intimate watering hole is set to be a Martini lover's dream watering hole. 

"Here, we are creating a place where guests can sip on the very best expertly crafted Grey Goose Martinis while immersed in exquisite surrounds," said the brand's marketing manager, Sander Janmaat.

Though we don't have word just yet on all the drinks that will be available, we do know the bar will be led by an exciting rotation of internationally acclaimed bartenders. First up is award-winning New York bartender Dale DeGroff, otherwise known as the 'King of Cocktails'. DeGroff is famous for working at the Rainbow Room in the '80s, and will plan the first line-up of Martinis for the bar's grand debut.
