    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.

    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.

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

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

    I arrived last to a group event and got a warm greeting from the lovely staff member. She even helped my pick out my meal!
    Some pubs you go to because of the atmosphere of the location or the big TV. Here people come for the FOOD. The serves are BIG and it's not to mask any lack of quality like some places. We had 30 very happy people who ordered right across the menu and many of them had been here before. Honestly I can't wait to go back and try something else off the extensive menu.
    I make a pretty good lasagne and used to do it weekly. Frank's was better and it was HUGE.
    It's also one of the few places left that will allow groups to split bills! We had each person head to the register and pay for their meal with no hassles. Oh and a good private room at the back for up to 40 people.

    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.

    We booked a table on the rooftop bar at The Imperial Hotel.

    Whilst it’s only 2 levels up and didn’t offer spectacular views like other higher based rooftop bars the atmosphere was very pleasant with views towards Parliament and Paris end of Collins St. Also great to be outdoors in these covid times.

    We didn’t dine here but did enjoy a drink.

    Small intimate place that is hard to find. (A good thing) Great staff, good music, great variety of cocktails and a satisfying menue. A chile Prawn flatbread (pizza) was sensational

    Very nice cocktails. Quite pricey but understandable because the views are spectacular and they don’t want people just coming up to see the views and only buying one drink. Will return again. Recommend the Lamington cocktail

    Had the lunchtime special. A little mix up with the drinks but service staff rectified this quickly. Sat outside with a view of the Parliment building.

    I visited Melbourne's Ice Bar with my hubby and teenage sons and we really enjoyed the experience! The cocktails / mocktails were delicious! Loved that we went in with a small group, as the bar inside isn't too big.
    The games were cute and I liked the ice carving decorations and ice bar.
    It was worth going, as it was an unusual experience.

    We ended up buying a couple of photos, because we couldn't take our phones inside. I thought the price was reasonable, compared to some photos we usually have the option to buy from amusement parks.

    Still an amazing place to watch Melbourne life go by especially when the sun is out like late today but their prices seem to be elevated almost as high as the bar. Quite expensive which isn't good considering the state of the bar - needs cleaning and some basic maintenance.

    Lovely atmosphere, friendly helpful staff. We’ve been living in Melbourne for over a year and I’ve been searching for a rooftop bar just like this. We didn’t see a sign, but heard the music and saw the stairs, so thought we’d give it a go. It didn’t disappoint. An extensive list of gins and some really interesting cocktails. It reminded me of rooftop bars in New York.

    Quite noisy on entry and as we were having a multi-generational family dinner I was a little worried. We were seated around the corner where the music was at a pleasant volume and conversation flowed. Wait staff were polite and attentive, food very nice and the Christmas decor gave festive cheer. On the whole a very satisfying experience.
