 space where good food, great wine and the magic of the written word come together...

Nestled between Kingston and Manuka in the stylish East Hotel, Muse is a meeting place for those who enjoy a grenache with their Grenville, and their Winton with a good washed rind.

We serve food from dawn into the night, and our carefully curated selection of new and second hand books is on sale during restaurant opening hours. Plus, when not dining or drinking from our fabulous, award-winning all-Australian drinks list, we host a busy calendar of events featuring some of Australia's top writers, thinkers, politicians, artists and winemakers.

Contemporary yet warm and inviting, Muse is an inspired venue for conversation, ideas and indulgence, both literary and epicurean.
