So you don’t like sitting in a booth gradually sinking into a booze stupor? Make drinking more interesting at these weird bars
You get furry Uggs and a cape and 30 minutes in a giant freezer filled with ice sculptures during which you'll be drinking wodka shots from carved ice cups. It’s just like drinking in the Antarctic. Or the Gold Coast. Southbank.
At the newly reopened Cellar Bar – the velvet lounge under Newmarket where it’s all about Champagne and private booths – they’re reviving old Newmarket’s infamous Schnitz ‘n Tits night. Now with burlesque and truffle salt chips! Classy. St Kilda.
Masturbating may be frowned upon at the Japanese baths in Collingwood, but drinking isn’t. Hit the lounge after your nude soak in the communal (single sex) pool for a mellowing bottle of sake. Collingwood.
It’s a winery in the carpark of Circa in St Kilda, and during October, it’s going to be operating as a cellar door – which is a win for every hipster oenophile who doesn’t want to cycle to the country. St Kilda.
The Savage Club
Sorry, this one's a tease – unless you're invited by a member of this gentlemen's club (and have a member in your pants) you can’t come in. The Savages only recruit gentlemen of good repute with interests in literature, science, and philosophy. Melbourne.
