“Great cocktail bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Came here for a couple of drinks before dinner.
A busy friday evening but managed to get a cosy table upstairs.Great atmosphere, like an upmarket 1920's speakeasy, but not noisy or rowdy.
Fantastic cocktail list and the drinks were perfectly made and there was no skimping on the measures too.Will return soon.

“Yummy cocktails!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

We came here after the footy for a drink and light snack. A part from the unfriendly door girl, it was great!

Our waiter was very helpful and the menu is awesome! We both enjoyed our cocktails and had a delicious jaffle to share.

1806 was recommended to us and really glad we went!

“Drinks Before Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

A great place to meet and have a drink before dinner. Ambiance is great along with a great selection of drinks and cocktails. Leather seats to recline and relax in. Fantastic selection of bar nibbles.
