Hidden Bars & History Tour

Hidden Bars & History TourHidden Bars & History Tour

In the 19th century, Melbourne was riddled with secret bars. Many restaurants would secretly serve alcohol without a liquor license; this was called ‘sly grogging.'

A knock on the right door, a rattle of coins and a tablecloth would be removed to reveal a stash of alcohol.

Join our Hidden Bars & History Tour and step back in time, to when the locals drank in secret.

Across the evening you'll drink at 3 of the best hidden cocktail bars in Melbourne. We'll dive into the city's secret drinking culture, and immerse ourselves in these cosy drinking dens.

You'll be hard pressed to find these bars on your own.

Your ticket includes 3 delicious cocktails and nibbles. Not a cocktail fan? Enjoy some premium wine, beer or spirits instead.
