Great bar and bartender downstairs then find the secret passage upstairs which has 18 well maintained and clean vintage pinball machines. Change available. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
