Embark on a journey of sensory discovery at Young Hearts, Windsor’s newest and most captivating destination for drinks, casual dining, and cultural exploration. Opening its doors on Thursday, April 13th, this inclusive space celebrates the fusion of music, art, food, events, and culture, promising a night to remember for all who visit.


Created by Neptune Food & Wine’s Nic Coulter, Young Hearts aims to fill a void in the local scene by offering a versatile space for patrons to choose their own adventure. Whether you prefer to sit or stand, book ahead or walk in, sip a cocktail or take a shot, dance, sing, or simply unwind, Young Hearts caters to all tastes and preferences.

At the heart of the Young Hearts experience is the uncomplicated yet thoughtfully curated drinks menu. With Mismatch and Bodriggy beers on tap, a natural wine list co-curated by Angus Hean (Fin, Cré), and quality cocktails that champion a less-is-more philosophy, there’s a perfect sip for everyone.

Twice a year, talented local and interstate chefs will helm the kitchen for six-month residencies, allowing the menu to continuously evolve with diverse culinary styles, flavours, and cuisines. Kicking things off, the team behind Windsor’s beloved Freddy’s Pizza (Chapel St) will serve up inventive Italian-inspired bar snacks, deviating from their usual pizza offerings.

As you savour these delectable dishes, you’ll be immersed in the laid-back atmosphere of Young Hearts, where music and art are integral to the experience. Enjoy the sounds of rotating DJs and live music performances, or delight in the visual offerings of established and emerging Australian artists, showcased through regular exhibitions in collaboration with local curators and art initiatives.

Catering to a range of needs, Young Hearts offers private events and functions, accommodating everything from large group bookings to venue takeovers. The space itself, a fusion of retro-industrial aesthetics, features exposed brick, steel beams, a brown-tiled bar, and tan fabric banquette seating, providing a warm and inviting ambiance.

Young Hearts is a unique and thrilling destination that brings together Melbourne’s most talented creatives under one roof. From the kitchen to the walls, turntables, and bar, this vibrant hotspot showcases the best local talent in a truly unforgettable atmosphere.
