This is located in the hotel we stayed. The menu offers flights of Australian whiskies, gins and rums. We met a bartender Nathan who gave us great recommendations. There is a great variety of gins.

Loved the cozy leather chairs and old world elegance. Someone did a great job refurbishing this bar to update it while maintaining its elegance. My only complaint is that they don't know how to make an authentic Irish whiskey. As it's halfway across the world...More

The $10 cob soup and a glass of wine was all I needed after a big day in conference. Relaxing but could use table service to make the second glass more accessible.More

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary

never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
