The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

I heard about this great whisky bar through friends. So I came here on Saturday night after being out for dinner with my wife.
We were not disappointed with the relaxed atmosphere, very knowledgeable bar staff. I could tell them what whiskies I liked and then they would recommend something different and nailed it every time. The whiskies were very well priced. Would recommend it to any whisky lover.

Really impressive selection, I haven't seen this much whisky in any bar back in Scotland. Very snug little place and would definitely go back if we find ourselves in Melbourne again

An unobtrusive (see: near impossible to find) hole-in-the-wall watering hole targeted at those most discerning of the dark spirits... Namely, whisky.

As I'm not a whisky drinker, and their wine list is ltd, we only stayed for one drink. But perched up at the bar, with the after-5 crowd suited and making civilised chatter, a clearly knowledgeable bartender to attend to ones needs, it's not at all a shabby place to stop in before dinner.

Attended a Whisky tasting at Melbourne Whisky room on the weekend and couldn't fault it. Well worth the money. The stories behind the whiskys were amazing will definitely be back for another.

We enjoyed a quiet drink here on a Sunday night but my husband assures me it can also be packed with a really energised vibe. Personally, I liked the quiet evening. Low Key Lighting, good music and as the photo of the bar shows - amazing range of beverages - not just alcoholic ones. We'll be back.

I came here in a group of 8, for a "whiskey class". The presenter was simply outstanding - information given freely, expertly and in a way we could all understand. The ambiance of this place is brilliant.
I would recommend this bar to anyone.

This cosy little bar has a large selection of whiskies for all those whiskey lovers out there. The staff are friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. More importantly they have some very unique whiskies worth trying. It can be difficult to get a seat in peak hours, it is recommended to get there early and aim to get the seats at the bar.

Been here several times courtesy of No1 son and it's obvious this lot know their stuff! I love my national drink but Jules et al take love to another level. Knowledgeable, enthusiastic and downright willing to share this with customers. They are a credit to spreading the story of the 'water of life' and they run a great wee bar at the same time! A must do when in Melbourne!

Whether your after a quick dram, or looking to sample your way through an extensive selection of 450+ whiskys this bar is fantastic. Friendly yet knowledgeable staff give attentive service.
Prices are reasonable, with house whiskys starting from $8.50 (my favourite Dalmore 12 is $9 a glass) although super rare drams costing alot more are available if you fancy. Whisky is served neat in stemmed tulip nosing glasses, so not the place to get an average scotch & coke on the rocks. They also do distillery tastings, social events & appreciation classes. A small separate smoking area is also on site.

My favourite place to drink whisky in the city

After having dinner in Chinatown, my friend and I, decided to check this place out. The range of whiskies on offer is substantial and from all around the globe.
Will definently return.
