As New York as Melbourne gets, this hidden basement bar with an underground speakeasy vibe is a relatively new addition. But Sweatshop is charismatically different. The revival theme here is all 80s - West Coast Coolers and old school punch bowls.

Situated below Seamstress Bar and Diner, Sweatshop is quirkily detailed with rolls of fabric, tiling and DJs who only spin vinyl - think Pat Benatar or Kim Wilde.
