The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hubby loves his whiskey, so a visit here was high on our priorities for our trip to Melbourne.

Staff were great, letting us know where the free seats were when we arrived. Huge whiskey choice naturally.

I don’t drink whiskey, but took one for the team - with my first Whisky Sour. Pretty darn good.

A must visit!

Best place for whisk(e)y in Melbourne! Knowledgeable staff. I love to try local whisky when I travel and they had an extensive list of Australian whisky. They also can build custom flights if you want to sample. Great night!

Pretty darn good from the get go.

Welcoming bar staff from the moment we walked in, friendly and personable. Had a laugh and chat and offered excellent advice on whiskey choice. Catered for me as well with gin choice (not just a whiskey bar)

Music wasn’t loud and playlist was perfect- nice old school relaxed type. It was nice to go somewhere and be able to have a conversation without yelling.

Will definitely come back 10/10

Came here for a night cap, they have outdoor and indoor seating. Great little place however with covid restrictions, as with any bar they have to be mindful of how many people are permitted in. Friendly staff

Lovely little whisky bar with a wide selection of single and blended malts from all over the world. Seriously impressed with their range of Aussie offerings. I came here just after 4pm which was perfect timing and was one of the first, but soon after it was filling up with customers so timing is everything! Service was very good and drinks were brought out in a timely manner. Perfect location if you are into your whiskies while having a small quiet place to enjoy your drink.

I've never been to a bar with such a wide variety of whiskies from all over the world. The bartender was fantastic and was very well educated on whiskies. Very cozy little location with lots of history. A must go in Melbourne.

This is a very small bar with a very large variety of bourbons and whiskeys. A little bit on the pricey side but perfect for a nightcap, interesting to see all the different bottles and types of whiskeys, I think it was about 360 of them in total. Would go again

Stopped in after a work dinner and tried a few whiskies. Pretty good range and good service from a friendly hipster behind the bar. Maybe a tad overpriced, but that's Melbourne...
