My partner and I are visiting Melbourne for a few days and came across this gem. I was in dire need of caffeine but no espresso martini on the menu... Then my new hero, Zanskar, asked what I'd like. "Can you do an espresso martini...More

We booked a table, but no one could find the booking; the decor looked way better in the pictures than in reality. Bar service was pretty blase - generally we got a feel of a very disinterested or else very obnoxious service. Will not recommend...More

Thank for the feed back.

Nice place with great views. Drinks were quite expensive and service at times was really slow. I wasn't so rapt with the music. Attended on a Saturday night, would maybe give it one more go on a different night as the views are pretty awesome

More of an afterwork venue and a little pretentious. Great views and decor makes me want to give it a decent rating. Staff were nice, just not the suits all crowding at the entrance and not letting anybody through.

It was ok as a night spot but nothing to write home about. For the cover and for the supposed upscale service (such as table service, etc) it wasn't amazing. Music was average. Nothing particularly stood out about this nightspot. It has a nice view...More

Place is ok, drinks are ok food is ok, view is not bad. But the whole place has nothing that is special or makes it stand out. Overall it's just another place to go, or not to

Nicely presented staff and bar. Amazing view (level 15) but the service for me was very average with the exception of the hostess who seemed busy but actually helpful. First visit we arrived at 5pm and the gates were locked (sign says open at 4)....More

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
