Heading out at night in a new city can be daunting especially in Melbourne, the nightlife capital of Australia, it’s hard to know where to begin. Melbourne’s elegant and lively nightlife enjoys global acclaim in stark contrast with our curious past. Let an experienced, local guide show you the way to a perfect night. Whatever you like to indulge in, from whisky and wine to ice cream and cocktails, your guide will help you find the best of what’s on offer, make sense of it all and see you home safely.
Be met at your hotel by your well-informed and connected local guide for a 6:00pm start. With tireless hours of research, and reading, drinking and story swapping, you are in tried and capable hands.
Begin with a classic cocktail in an intimate ‘bar american’ with a license for just ten people. Learn about the city’s dark side and the many curious characters from both sides of the law, who have helped to shape it.
Continue on to one of the cities ‘rooftop bars’ and enjoy a different view of Melbourne with drink in hand. Meet the people behind the industry to gain an insight into what makes the city tick, where it has come from and where it is heading.
Down a few turns, a left and a right, past some colourful street art and more than a suspect laneway or two, discover a hidden local gem with a flair for the exciting and unusual. Suddenly you’re in Tokyo or an opium den, a quirky dive bar on the wrong side of an industrial fridge door…
The scene is always changing, and so are the guests, so no two tours are ever alike.
Bring your appetite as you will have the chance to sample Melbourne’s best bar food, from charcuterie boards heaped with local produce, to scrumptious dim sum, perhaps even a remake of the humble Aussie ‘jaffle.’
Enjoy a little dessert and digestives at our final stop. Your guide can point you onward or escort you home.
