On a Wednesday evening the crowd was sparse but the music needed to be loud for some reason. They did mix a good G+T and the balcony overlooking the Flinders Lane was good but occupied by smokers. Thanks for the vote if you found this...More

Lustre Bar is a rather tiny establishment on the first floor overlooking the iconic Degraves St. The drinks are all okay, with nothing jumping at you as iconic. The food and service was average as well, but the ambiance is very dark and dated -...More

After a few days in Melbourne we’ve walked past the Lustre bar. Upon our way back to our appartment we heard live music and decided to go in. The entrance is on the side of the pub in a rather dark alley. Other than expected...More

Central Business District
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
