Make this sophisticated 1920s speakeasy-style bar your first port of call – you'll have to pass muster with the host/ess before you're let in. If you succeed, you'll be guided into a candlelit booth and the best classic cocktail in Melbourne.
Grab a Huxtaburger on your way into this hidden haunt. Find the entrance (behind the fridge) and you'll be rewarded with whiskies, boutique beers and the voyeuristic pleasure of spying on passers by through one-way mirror windows.
Packed with discerning drinkers and party animals alike, this place is known as the black hole for good reason. Flummoxed by the long cocktail and beer list? Leave it to the most professional bartenders in the biz.
Like a vision of Hawaii drawn by a cartoonist in the middle of a three-day acid binge, LuWOW is adorably bizarre. Finish your night off with a dance in the 'Forbidden Temple' and a drink that looks like Carmen Miranda. Aloha!
