    Grab a seat at the bar and watch the bartenders work beautiful magic. Classic cocktails, inventive presentation (liquid nitrogen on tap, mugs on fire, vintage barware). Truly special place. Must visit

    Amazing, loved this place. The signature cocktail is a vanilla mousse topped esspresso (can't remember the name) with liquid nitrogen poured on top at your table

    Amazing venue with an unassuming entry door. You might miss the brown door your first time but once you're in your hit with great service, the perfect level of low light and fantastic drinks. Must.

    Dita Von Teese would love this place--it's Parisian-styled, elegant and intimate with a cocktail menu categorized by eras starting with the 1920's. The Espresso Zabaglione is a serving spectacle!

    A Jazz speakeasy. They have one in Sydney too, which I've heard is incredible, so if you're there check it out perhaps.

    Only place in Melbourne with liquid nitrogen on tap ensuring an ice cold. Ginger beer is another feature. No sign so look for a timber door with a brass handle. Read my full review on my web page. Read more

    For wiz-bang drink tomfoolery, ask for a smoky Negroni. Gin, Campari, vermouth and hickory smoke are all sealed in a beaker, and stirred by a magnetic bar which churns the liquid by magic. Read more
