This is a fabulous cocktail bar with a difference. Its now VERY popular and certainly need to be adventurous with your tastes, which we are. The snack menu is equally awesome. Perfect spot for a before or after dinner cocktail.

Went for a pre dinner cocktail, and boy do they know their stuff. I liked the relaxed wood trim, the casual sophisticated vibe, and the service staff. Didn’t try the food, will do that next time. Highly recommended.

Tucked right down a small lane with almost unnoticeable doorway, this popular bar has a wide range of mixes and hard to find whiskies. Great service. We went for pre-dinner drinks and scored a small booth for four. Suggest booking to avoid the queue which...More

Great place for a celebration, pre dinner drink or a night cap. Drinks and food are quite expensive but the theatrics of it does make it interesting. We love it for a special occasion.

This place is a hoot. They know their booze and they understand service. Worth a visit for a pre-dinner drink or book the private room for a whiskey experience. I have done both and will be back.

WOW! This is something else..from the hidden door entry, the majorly cool 'hidden bar' vibes on entry (due to everyone being tickle pink to have made it in and be seated, lapping up this cool Speakeasy venue), the cocktail list (insert "mind blown"), the décor,...More

It is a cool, dim, posh place.. in Australia... so smart casual would be about right. There were business suits, ladies in posh frocks, and some men in ties, so if that is your style, go for it. Shorts and tee shirts would... More
