Cute, cool and convenient it's a great little bar reminiscent of what you might find in Tokyo rather than Melbourne. It is tiny therefore doesn't cater well for big groups but definitely worth a visit. Of note whilst this is technically a whisky bar, I...More

Stumbled across this place and was very impressed. It’s a great cosy space with an incredible selection of whiskys. The bartenders and owner are clearly passionate about the drinks they serve. Pull up a stool at the bar and ask for a recommendation

Great little place. Our host was an Italian/Scottish Aussie who appears to be part of the structure of the place; loves his whisky and is full of great advice. The sort of bar you see in movies but rarely exists in real life.

My girl and I loved this relaxing whisky bar on Russell. The range is enormous and all the guys behind the jump know their product. Give the Quarter Cask Laphroaig a rumble. Simply bliss...:)

We came here as part of a tour and i happen to like whisky. The owner knew pretty much everything about every bottle and was very friendly. Really worth coming here to sample some new whiskey

What a great venue in the heart of Melbourne. Excellent and attentive service, staff have a tremendous knowledge of their products. The world's best whisky to choose from. My favourite bar in Melbourne.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
