After diving into 1806 to escape the winter chill of Melbourne, we were welcomed by a helpful compare and showed to our balcony seats overlooking the bar where all of the action takes place. The menu choices for cocktails is extensive, and actually a very good read! The staff were attentive and helpful throughout the evening. The bar staff enjoyed their jobs, this much is clear from the way they interact, move around the bar and put on a bit of a show. Ensure you are well dressed as 1806 has a strict dress policy.

If you enjoy cocktails and the art of their creation, certainly give this place a try! I cannot wait to go back.

Well what can I say!! 1806 is an exclusive restaurant that makes arguably some of the best cocktails ever! The menu itself takes you through a historic journey of cocktails by the decade!! And they serve it all!! Comfortable seating, a bar counter worth staring at and an excellent staff make for any visit there quite an experience!! Book in advance if you are planning to visit over the weekends. Its exclusively table service.
