Drink eat and dance

Staff are good but the service is a bit slow. Excellent venue for my son's 35th birthday party. Lighting effects and music are good.

Impressive entrance, opulent decor inside, busy bar, popular music and dance club. Fun dance cage in the middle, lots of seating booths and areas. Gets busy quickly at night.

Great bar but pathetic table service. Staff would take cash and serve drinks sometimes one at a time. But what annoyed me us that they would never bring your change back. So make sure you give them exact tender to avoid this. Otherwise it's a great venue.

This place is real plush with an amazing entrance that has you impressed as soon as you walk in. However, it just peaked right there. After being shown through the dance floor to bar I realised we were early and there was no atmosphere, but the music was kept low and comfortable to conversations. In fact the dj slowely built...

Entered through the VIP line which for some reason took us some time to enter. The security staff were excellent but they really need more to expedite the folks waiting in the queue and I don't mean in the General Public Queue. Entering "Spice" feels very exotic and the decor and lighting is amazing, music is great and a very... More

Visited this amazing bar with some friends late on Saturday night and have to say I had a great time. Rented a booth with a drinks package and was great, although slightly pricey but much easier to manage than individual drinks at the bar. Loved the music and the crowd there and will be going back again very soon

Really quite a lovely location interior, such a surprise when we entered. We were lucky enough to have eaten early and were on our way to another location when we spotted the entry. It's quite a beautiful interior, funky music, and if you're early enough you can really see what it has to offer, as I imagine it would fill... More

Awesome bar with a nice decor. The drinks are a bit pricey but it doesn't hurt so much when you are having whiskey in a great location.

This place was recommended to us by friends, and was incredibly convenient as it was located immediately under our hotel. As soon as we walked in we thought it was great - good lighting, fun music, stylish layout and really good service. Not to mention a sensational happy hour. We really enjoyed being (somewhat grown up) hipsters for a few... More

25 March 11 pm Our group of 6 (40+ completely sober) friends visiting from Queensland decided to go to this highly recommended club. We were asked for ID and one of my friends couldn't find hers. We were asked to step aside to let others thru. When we came back, we were refused entry on the basis that we took... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
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.
