Bars

Experience Melbourne's eclectic spirit with a night out exploring the wonderful nightspots peppering the city's streets and laneways.

Go your own way
Up a flight of stairs, down a laneway, on a rooftop or in an orchestra pit, Melbourne sure knows how to hide a bar. You never know where the next great drinking spot is going to pop up, so let us help.

Tall tales and cocktails
Whether you're after a colourful cocktail with a million dollar view or a few quiet pots in a student dive, you're bound to find something that suits your mood and budget. Bar-hop like a local, dance to world class DJs, be baffled and challenged by installation art, or chow down on a late night snack, the city at night is awash with possibilities.
