Unveiling Melbourne's Hidden Gems

The tour kicks off with an introduction to the city's vibrant history, subtly woven into the narrative by your seasoned guide. As you traverse from one bar to the next, you will be regaled with captivating tales and intriguing, lesser-known facts about Melbourne. For instance, did you know that Melbourne is often dubbed the ‘Paris of the Southern Hemisphere’ owing to its strong European influence? This can be seen in the city's bar culture, especially in the hidden bars that exude a distinctly European charm and character.

The tour covers three meticulously handpicked bars, renowned for their unique ambiance, impeccable service, and exquisite cocktails. You'll be guided to bars tucked away in basements, behind nondescript doors, and down shadowy laneways, each with a story to tell. Your guide will recommend cocktails based on your individual taste, ensuring a personalized experience. The tour includes a cocktail of your choice and finger food or pizza to keep you fuelled. As a cherry on top, at the end of the tour, you will receive a treasure map marking out other hidden bars in Melbourne, letting you extend your exploration and enrich your night out. This isn't a rowdy bar crawl, but a sophisticated exploration of Melbourne's best-kept secrets, perfect for individuals or small groups looking for a unique and memorable experience.
