    This place lies at the main Lygon street and also known as Pokkies. This is a kind of mini casino and truly good for fun and entertainment, less crowded, convenient for people living in this sourinding but not like the big Casino Crown. Only slot machines available with drinks bar and shorties to enjoy.

    John was our American/Aussie guide who immediately made us all feel welcome & relaxed. A great group of people meandering around some truely dodgy laneways to discourse some awesome gems of bars. A really fun way to spend a beautiful day in the gorgeous city of Melbourne. My 2nd time, not my last!

    John Batman, a Tasmanian, founded Melbboune in 1835. When the Great Australian Goldrush began in 1851, Melboune boomed. The city has many gracious buildings rertained from that era, when Melboune was the Queen City of the South. Some are well-known, such as the Queen Victoria Market, known as the Vic Market, and the decorative Block Arcade, one of the finest buildings remaining from the early 1890s. Some places are off-the-track secrets, that a llocal can point out to you. An urban adventure has many aspects, there's something for everyone..

    Myself and my brother-in-law Mark absolutely enjoyed the Scary Tales & Hidden Bars Tour, which is just one of the great tours that Drinking History Tours does. It was hosted by a very upbeat, well educated and enthusiastic man called Liam who was fantastic. We found out after the tour it was his first tour as a guide with Drinking History Tours. Liam made it feel like he’s been doing tours for years. Liam, you did an amazing job mate. You taught us about the interesting dark side of Melbourne and also refreshed our pallets at various bars that were unknown to myself and Mark who are both Melbournians. It shows there's always something to see and do in Melbourne. Don't miss this tour if you're on a holiday to Melbourne. If you're a local then you're missing out if you don't give this tour a go! A+++

    We really enjoyed the ambience of this cool little jazz club.

    Very laid back but super cool little jazz club.

    If you want somewhere with a great vibe this is the place.

    Came here for one of their whisky classes (Japanese session) and was well presented, full of knowledge and a lot of fun. The whisky offerings are of top quality with some rare hard to find tastings. The whisky room upstairs is well decorated which sets up an excellent vibe.

    Would highly recommend their whisky masterclasses and has a stake in claiming Melbourne’s best whisky bar.

    Came here to see the musical Come from away. The theatre was a little outdated, but nothing horrible. Seats were actually pretty comfortable. Considering how many top performances they attract here during the Melbourne comedy festival, you would think this place would be very modern. Good location and staff friendly.

    Great jazz club with an intimate vibe. Many varied acts to see while enjoying a tasty dinner during the show. Fantastic value if you book dinner and show together. Ha e been a number of times now and will definitely be back.

    Good food but fairly expensive. Service was variable and bathrooms needed work.

    Visited several times service standards and food sizes varied when busy.

    We popped in unexpectedly around lunchtime when rain was threatening - and were very impressed. Super friendly staff; prompt service; extremely tasty food; and very well priced. Highly recommend

    Lovely little whisky bar with a wide selection of single and blended malts from all over the world. Seriously impressed with their range of Aussie offerings. I came here just after 4pm which was perfect timing and was one of the first, but soon after it was filling up with customers so timing is everything! Service was very good and drinks were brought out in a timely manner. Perfect location if you are into your whiskies while having a small quiet place to enjoy your drink.

    I purchased this as a bday gift for my brother who had a really fun time after the Melbourne lockdown. Taylor was an excellent guide and my brother discovered some new bars that were real gems. Highly recommend.

    Better at Happy Hour
    $10.00 Espresso Martini.
    The interior need an upgrade. JT-Aug 2019.

    Pre-movie ... drinks & nibbles ....

    Can be difficult to find a table if you are in a big group, but it's quite a convenient place to hang out pre-movie ... lots of options for food and coffee outside, along Lygon St though.

    Outdoor verandah with a view. JT-16/10/2017.
