Best bar in Melbourne!!

Sofisticated crowd, amazing cocktails and Tapas. Lounge and easy speak early at night and disco and funk late with dancefloor. Great service and attentive staff. Is a must if you are around St kilda.

Wlaked past and liked the look so went inside. It was early evening on a Friday night before the crowds. The ambiance was excellent - hard to explain, kid of jazzy, also laid back, older style. The service from the waitress was excellent, very friendly, there is a great menu of cocktails although fairly expensive at $20 a hit. Now... More

We visited late one night after seeing Bob Dillon and really never wanted to leave! Fantastic staff and the ambience was faultless. Can't recommend it enough :)

Music was great, mostly 90's, was great to heard tunes that I hadnt... More

Had a lovely Chicken house burger with fabulous fries with dips and my partner had a marvelous beetroot and feta cheese salad of which we decided to share as both meals were delicious, washed down with a bottle of...

This isn't the biggest place on Fitzroy, but it is becoming by favorite. Really love the food here. I have had some disappointing meals in St. Kilda, but this wasn't one of them. Everyone in our group was pleased with their lunch. On a busy summer Sunday the meals were prompt and perfect. Looking forward to going back for cocktails.

Have always had a great night at this bar. I have not eaten there so cannot comment on the food but the drinks are always fantastic, wine in particular is excellent and not overly expensive like a lot of other bars around this area. The dress code is smart, they ensure a nice, fun and well behaved crowd is allowed... More

In and around St Kilda, there are so many bars and night spots. I've been to most but always find myself with friends back at Laika. Everyone, staff and patrons, are always up for a chat and a laugh. Great cocktails and wine and the music is always fantastic. Service is great and the price for most drinks is in... More
