I’m also giving my vote to 1806. Great team of people who are passionate about what they do, and it shows in every drink they make.

The Everliegh above the old Dantes site on Gertrude street is amazing and well worth a visit. Eau De Vie on Malthouse lane in the city trumps all.

The Waiting Room inside of the Crown’s lobby area. Their kitchen adjoins Rockpool.

Another vote for Der Raum in Richmond! Best cocktails in Melbourne.

I would definitely vote Der Raum. Also, Charlie’s Bar in Hardware Lane or Hairy Canary. Croft Institute is pretty amazing as well.

Veludo in Acland St (St Kilda) is pretty good and not ridiculously priced. Some of the bartenders know their cocktails better than others but they have a good selection.

There’s a place on Russel St called the Ice Lounge – it’s amazing! Really cold though. Anyway, there’s a cocktail bar above it and the bartender flairs like mad. I was there a couple of months ago so hopefully he’s still there!

Ditto on 1806. I also love Red Hummingbird and Emerald Peacock (they are sister bars, after all)!

Polly on Brunswick Street. Awesome selection of cocktails and Absinthe’s (which they serve correctly with sugar cubes and an Absinthe spoon). They also have a nice selection of cigars.

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: 1806 http://www.1806.com.au, Exhibition St, just north of Burke St.

They make things go on fire!

The Sofitel off-Collins makes a mean Dark & Stormy, and their Atrium bar is pretty swish.
