The best thing of this bar is the view of the city. Drinks are good. But not worth paying that kind of prices they are charging for cocktails. I guess the higher you go, more you pay for the drinks 😝😝

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
