    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.

    A gorgeous speakeasy, with an awe-inspiring collection of drinks. The cocktails were fantastic (and trust me, I tried quite a few!), the food was excellent and the atmosphere was wonderful. Love it.

    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!

    Crazy good speakeasy which is the best in Melbourne. Every drink was spot on! Tried the gin&tonic, zapaca blazer, aviator, 'coffee with whisky and vanilla cream with nitrogen poured over'. 🤗

    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

    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

    The most uplifting environment and the best cocktails I've ever had. It's my go to when I'm in a bad mood, instant childlike wonder & you can't go wrong w anything on the menu. Must try!

    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

    Only place in Melbourne with liquid nitrogen on tap ensuring an ice cold. Ginger beer is another feature. My pick for best bar in Melbourne. No sign so look for a timber door with a brass handle.

    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.

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

    Very "vintagy" place. Great selection of cocktails! It's hidden in one of Melbournes side lanes which makes it more authentic.

    Pricey but worth every penny. Have fun and order something that seems like an odd combination - it will be delicious!
