Staff are pretty unfriendly, clientele questionable. Go with a group and it will be fun. Been a few times over the years, might go back, but wouldn't beat a path.

Looking forward to our night our with friends we decided to go and have some cocktails and pre dinner drinks at the luxe bar. Rude security guard was the first to greet us at the door.20 mins wait to get in.. This was at 7.30 pm Saturday night.. Finally got into the bar and about 50 people in there . Really crowded NOT.. Glass of red wine two glasses of champagne and a manhattan $67.90 then went and sat down in an area that was just away from the DJ's table .. LOUD AND UNCOMFORTABLE.. put drink down to go to the bathroom and when I came bak m.y drink was gone.. Cleaned up and when I let the bar girl know was told it would have been empty.. I had one sip out of it ..a place for the very young crowd and not suitable for a night if your hedging put for. Met. Very disappointed ..

Attended a Melbourne Cup day at Luxe, Venue looked good, crowd were having fun, but unfortunately the bar set up really let this event down. It took on average about 20 minutes to get served each time we went to the bar, due to limited staff and a small setup. If they had a bar for cocktails and a bar for beer/wine/soft drink it would have flowed much better.

Luxe has a reputation for good cocktails and I was eager to sample a few, the custom cocktails they made were quite good, but they were predominantly long drinks,so not hard to do well.

When it came to the classics they were very poor. The margaritas we ordered were not at all balanced, they were unable to make a pisco sour and when i asked for a sazerac I got a blank stare.

If you're going to be known as a cocktail bar you've got to be able to make classics. Its one thing serving long drinks full of fruit juice, its another to be able to make a well constructed and balanced drink that's dominated by a spirit. Sours take a lot of practice to get right but if you're going to charge $20 a drink, i want it perfect.

Not sure, but it is delicious. Very good cocktails that have a lot of care put in to them.

End result is of course long waits at the bar etc. Its over 10 years old so for a late night loud cocktail bar the decor is starting to look a little "retro", but its still going strong.

It takes forever to get a cocktail and they're really expensive. The atmosphere is ok but the music is too loud for talking, not right for dancing.
