Armed with red paint and determination to ignore the rising sun? Night owls, Melbourne has a bar for you.
When you're marvelling at how the quick sundowner turned into a session, you're leaving work when everyone else is in snooze town or you're fighting a losing battle with jetlag, don't despair. There are plenty of places in Melbourne to tuck into a tipple while everyone else is tucked in bed. Sleek wine bars, sticky rock bars, bars upstairs, downstairs and in laneways – you just need to know where to look.
These CBD bars will keep the light on for you well after the last tram has gone home.
