“So you like whisky....listen in.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Chez Regine is just changing its name to Whisky and Ale, I believe from talking to the bar staff.
Definitely needs the word WHISKY in there somewhere, as this is what this bar does superbly.
Great selection, not a huge bar so its the kind of cosy enjoyable atmosphere ideal for the consumption of the amber gold. They had about 250 on display, but I believe they are expanding the collection to 450. The bar staff were very knowledgable and I got to try a whole series of new whisky expressions and experiences. Prices are very reasonable (esp in comparison to other bars in Melbourne).
Other patrons were raving about the whisky cocktails (Its the kind of place were conversations are easily struck up).
I believe they do cigars as well.
If you are into whisky then this is perhaps Australia's best!
