Owner description: Handsomely decorated with leather couches, antique armchairs and featuring a number of intimate and secluded curtain areas; BOSS is the essence of elegance and old world inner-city sophistication. The walls adorned with subtle oriental inspired wallpaper and similarly inspired works of art make for the supreme backdrop. BOSS’s well reputed Asian tapas menu is the ideal accompaniment to any cocktail, imported beer, international or local wine, particularly when one wishes to share with friends.

We went here for a hens do and were told when we wanted to leave after a few hours that we needed to pay over $500?!
We asked for their reasoning behind this and said we were charged per head and it was a minimum of $40 per head. When arranging this I had spoken to people twice from the establishment and they never thought to mention this?
Taking advantage of people who drink too much and then you try to leave and you are caught.

We refused to pay more than what we had owed and decided in the end to come to "some" arrangement and left only $100 out of pocket.

This all wouldn't have been an issue if they had told us about it in the first place.

I would never go here again.

Work cocktail party in the upstairs function room. Great atmosphere and space for a function. Finger food was really nice and the staff were friendly and helpful.

If you're thinking of where to hold a large group of friends, this place is quite a good option. It's right smack in the CBD and is only a few minutes walk from Melbourne Central and Flinders Street Station.

The menu is quite extensive, offering the usual bar chows (with a small veggie selection) and the usual alcoholic drinks and some very sweet mocktails. Price is pretty reasonable and for the consumable minimum amount of A$ 25 per person (for group bookings of 10 or more pax, 6-10 pm) it's not that bad at all.

The one negative thing about the place is that they use a touchscreen for the karaoke menu which proved to be quite difficult to navigate and is much much less user friendly than the traditional karaoke songbook / number pad input system. It takes a bit of getting used to but as soon as you crack it it's a breeze.

On top of the usual English karaoke staples, there are Chinese, Japanese and other Asian songs in the menu.

Great if you're celebrating a birthday and everyone's not that fussed about hanging out at the usual bar.
