    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

  • Josef H.

    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

  • Giuseppe S.

    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.

    Espresso Zabaione. Cozier than the Sydney one.

    Amazing atmosphere, cocktail/whiskey menu, & bar food but extremely slow service. Extremely.

  • Christine o.

    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!

    Christine of Hexotica · April 16, 2014
  • Joseph M.

    Great martini bar! Try the house made Negroni.

    Joseph Messina · January 9, 2014

    Make your way through the wall of scotch.

    Once you manage to find the place you will keep coming back.

    You have to try Greg's Old Fashioned made with Eagle Rare

    James Ng · September 20, 2013
  • Matt M.

    Let Greg and Tasha take care of you. This is a classic cocktail bar with an artistic spin on the drinks.

    Matt Muilenburg · August 27, 2013

    Go for the aviator. If you like gin :) Also house the best rum in the world.

    Beatrice Ting · June 21, 2013
  • Jez T.

    The Staff are wonderful! Take your time with reading the menu or go the easier option and get the Staff to recommend for you. What a delight.

    Quite a mature crowd on a Wednesday night. But still great atmosphere with amazing cocktails!

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

    Chris Messina · May 16, 2013

    Loved the dark & stormy and peanut butter jelly time - everything was delicious.

    "EDV does serious cocktail making without being stingy on the fun, so whatever you want, from a beer to a liquid-nitrogen chilled martini, they’ve got you covered." via Timeout Melbourne

    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

    The Highlander Sazerac with monkey shoulder

    Bana NaRama · April 27, 2012
  • Time Out Melbourne

    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

    Just find it. Anything with wonderfully spivey ginger beer is a must!

    The tuna is amazing

    Mia Milla · December 20, 2011
  • Katie S.

    Great drinks, food and service. Try the tuna, croquettes and tart.

    Katie Sheppet · December 16, 2011
  • Yui S.

    Dark and stormy if you are into spicy! Ginger based... Real Christmasy!!

    Yui Sakata · December 11, 2011

    This is awesome. Try their specialty aviator!! As good as the Sydney venue
