After dusk, good old Melbourne-town takes on a special vibe. With over 100 bars and night spots in the city, there is no shortage of venues to enjoy. Outdoor bars, themed night spots or small intimate places can be found for a quiet drink often within a short walk away. Follow the guides up the hidden laneways of the city to find these treasures.
Maybe you would like to relax in a luxurious lounge with MELTours while sipping a cocktail in one of Melbourne's hidden bars? Many of the great bars in Melbourne are easily overlooked if a person doesn't already know that they exist! A plain doorway could lead to a venue with a great vibe and wonderful drinks. Let us show the tourist what many people often walk past.
On Thursday, Friday or Saturday nights a number of venues around the city are visited, where guests will be treated to two complimentary drinks, delicious nibbles and relax in a comfy allocated area! During the course of the evening up to five to 10 bars will be visited, usually the guides select venues during the tour depending on the group.
