Through gold rushes and rebellions, Olympics and royal visits, Melburnians have turned to ales, whiskeys, wines, and cocktails for comfort. Experience Melbourne’s unique bar scene with a local guide and visit its unique watering holes. By the end of his tour, you will discover that history really is better with booze (as if there was ever any doubt).
You will visit and have the opportunity to try concoctions from the following pit stops:
A classic Aussie pub. Throw back a pot or a pint and learn how beer nearly led to all alcohol being banned during the gold rush.
A cocktail bar. Experience one of Melbourne's best mixologists in tiny, hidden cocktail bars that survive on word of mouth alone.
A wine bar. With the Yarra Valley just a stone’s throw away, it would be a sin not to taste some of the delectable wines.
A surprise - Melbourne’s bar scene is ever-changing, so the fourth bar will be chosen by your guide on the day, depending on the group’s desires, the weather, and what is trendy in Melbourne at that particular moment in time.
