Eau De Vie Melbourne
A bar straight out of 1920’s prohibition America, from the moment you walk in you are taken back to a much forgotten era. Once inside you can sit up at the bar, at one of our shared high tables, our low banquette and coffee table seating, or a more intimate and private booth.
Secretly hidden behind our book case, the Whisky Room owes its name to our large collection of rare and exclusive whiskies that live here. It is also home to our Bottle Lockers, where you can purchase your favourite spirit bottle from Eau-de- Vie and store it for your next visit.

Amazing hidden spot in Melbourne. Especially on a cold winters night.
Drinks are a bit pricey but you pat for whole experience which makes it worth it.
Staff very knowledgeable & accommodating with request for vegan options.
Perfect for dates, special occasions or have a different experience.
Most of the drinks are a spectacle and delicious.
My friends and I just love this place ! Staff are amazing and it just has a cool vibe with amazing cocktails ♥️
Great atmosphere and cocktails were excellent!
A theatre style experience in a restaurant amazing 🤩
Awesome place for pre dinner drinks,,,, AMAZING cocktails & fantastic service.
Unfortunately not enough choice of food and items not available
Our waitress’ service and drink recommendations were amazing, she made us feel so welcome and attended to everything we needed. We came here for my boyfriend’s birthday and it was the perfect lively atmosphere and the chef’s selection menu was perfect. All the flavour combinations with the food and drinks were a match made in heaven. Couldn’t recommend this place more, will definitely be coming back to try the other drinks!
Great place to experience a bit of theatre around cocktails, whilst enjoying some great food. All capped off by wonderful staff on hand to make sure you have all you need for a great experience.
Our table was not ready on time. There was 1 min delay. However, the staff compensated this delay with complimentary shots. The ambiance was excellent. The coctails were unique.
Great overall, lots of fun interaction with the staff over what cocktail was next 👍
Great customer service, delicious drinks and a lovely vibe. Would definitely go back!
Very friendly staff, gave us free shots for a birthday and they’re the best thing I’ve tasted! Thank you so much
I always enjoy my time at Eau de Vie! Exiting cocktails, fabulous staff and fabulous place!
We had the most attentive and ridiculously knowledgeable waiter (dont remember his name but he was trained by the head bartender at Dessous), delicious food and cocktails, we also got a round of shots by the house as it was my birthday. My friends and I had a blast.
I always have loved Eau Di Vie but since Covid has struck the menu has shrunk considerably and I miss being able to hang there all night, I don,t really understand the 1 and half hours rule because I always spend up big and should be able to stay as long as I like. Otherwise, all my friends love the experience and say they never would have known it existed!
Great night with great friends!
Nice place, very good cocktails, good music although a little bit too loud.
Food is good, but you would like to enjoy it in a more relaxed way, 1h30 slot for a set menu and drinks is not enough and make you rush through it which is a pity for that price... but we spend a good moment anyways.
An exquisite experience! Everything about this place was wonderful.
Every time I go to Eau De Vie... I just want to come back. My partner said afterwards (she had not been before), next time I must frock up to do the location justice.
We didn’t eat but tried 4 different cocktails each. Outstanding service, lovely recommendations by the waitstaff and the cocktails were delicious 😋
Thoroughly enjoyed our night. Thanks to Jack our awesome server, who made incredible drink suggestions. And even bigger thanks to Lucy for reorganising everything for us with Covid, I am so
So grateful for your incredible service.
What an absolute delight! The espresso Martini was quite theatrical and a special highlight if the night.
Food was good but needed a little more seasoning. We were very obviously pushed out 10 mins after ordering our last drinks.
The reduced menu wan disappointing and the booth reduced the atmosphere
Not much is said about your meals, however l ordered the brisket and it was exceptional. The cocktails were nice and strong but due to the hype was expecting them to be more memorable. Beautiful ambience for a date and service was very good
Overall good experience - some delay with booked table. Waitress very knowledgeable and keen to help with the order. The food was great but not exceptional. Drinks were excellent.
Timed seating not very customer friendly. Our waiter lovely but generally not very welcoming
Chef’s tasting menus was a little disappointing. Service was good, staff are attentive and proactive. Cocktails are fantastic!
Best negroni I’ve ever had 😍
Never ever disappoints….even on a Wednesday night
Had a fun visit to Eau De Vie last Saturday night. We enjoyed cocktails, beer, wine & quite a bit from the menu, 6 of us sharing around a low table. Great service & hospitality. Book well in advance, it’s worth it.
Cocktails were delicious, menu had a wide variety of drinks to choose from. Would absolutely recommend to everyone however booking is definitely essential.
We only had drinks; no food. Please ignore the food rating. A response was necessary to move to the next page.
We loved it! The only problem it was so hard to find but once you are in the ambience is so great!
Love this place. The atmosphere, service & food was amazing. A little disappointed that we could only stay for 1.5 hrs as we would have loved to stay longer & purchase more drinks but their loss as we went elsewhere to buy lots more drinks.
Great food; service was good but could've been more attentive.
Jess was amazing!! Cocktails were spectacular and it was like going to a theater show.
Really enjoyed the whole experience. So unique. Have already booked for dinner next week. Looking forward to it
