Vernon is a very colourful Melbourne man who has been running bars for over ten years. He googled 'Marvellous Melbourne' (1850s-1890s) and this woman appeared, Madame Brussels, who owned brothels, was a single mother, was wealthy, and she was actually really naughty!She was very much in with the good guys and the bad guys.
She was the first woman in Australia to have a private phone - and Parliament gave it to her!
It was like a blank canvas - Madame Brussels - go crazy! So I brought the Madame back as Miss Pearls, representing the servicing so to speak - although with liquor not sex!
I think the by-line was 'every day is a garden party' whether outside or inside. The naughtiness is there in the type of drinks, the staff uniform with the little tennis outfits, the language created in the menu which is a little bit naughty but does not cross the line. All of the team soak up the era of Madame Brussels in the way they talk, dress, walk and produce the drinks.
He is currently traveling from capital to capital on the Continent to determine how member states envision EU spending for the period from 2018 to 2027.
But the German voice, which generally carries significant weight when it comes to budgetary questions,is silent these days.
