Bad Frankie

The guys at Bad Frankie have a pretty incredible selection of exclusively Australian spirits — all the big ones and plenty of small distilleries. Their cocktail use native ingredients such as pepper berry, macadamia, lemon myrtle, and gum tree leaves. The grilled sandwiches — jaffles — are hot, homely and absolutely mouthwatering. Open late, casual and always fun.

Bars & Nightlife

Melbourne is awash with bars of all themes and clientele imaginable. Although you are never more than a couple of blocks away from a bar, they are mainly concentrated in central Melbourne, save for a handful in the Fitzroy and St Kilda areas. Rooftops are great for taking advantage of Australia's climate. Seek one out and enjoy the breezy setting with a drink in hand.
