Balsan has a very long, beautiful bar. Perfect for a long, beautiful stay at the absolutely perfect Elysian.
Citysearch Editorial Review – Tucked inside the luxurious Elysian hotel, this all-day cafe is designed to be the more casual, but still polished sister of Ria. A raw bar, charcuterie and wood-burning oven lend European flair to the bistro space, which gleams like a vintage piece of jewelry. Behind the marble-topped bar, etched glass reflects a snowflake design, a nice complement to the pewter and gunmetal tones throughout the room. A studied staff minds the details for hotel guests and the Gold Coast elite, whether it’s a perfectly poured custom cocktail or well-timed appetizer (like the popular tarte flambee with sweet onions, bacon and cheese). Chef Jason McCleod helms the kitchen, sticking to seasonal, straightforward cuisine like duck breast, pork sausage and honey-glazed tenderloin.
