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.

Difficult to eat food from low tables - being older than usual crowd it would have been nice to be offered normal table
Great Ambiance, amazing setting and to top it off the service from Jack at the bar was second to none. Will
We’re originally from Sydney and heard about this place and it definitely lived to its hype! Drinks were great, service was amazing. Definitely would recommend
Always loved this place in the past but the current 1 hour sitting sessions are not conducive to really enjoying the venue. Whilst all service staff were very nice and attentive, we felt rushed to get through our drinks and food so that we can be ushered out for the next round of guests.
Beautiful cocktails served by knowledgeable staff. The only downside is it's VERY loud due to it being a very compact space. Unfortunately there were quite a few banshees with no volume control on the night I was there. Can't fault it otherwise.
Amazing experience and service , will be back again for sure!
Third visit which speaks for itself. Attentive, informative & friendly staff. Will return.
Amazing as always. But cocktails came out slow and with the 1:30h limit it felt a bit rushed. A 2 hours service would be more appropriate.
Tasty and good quality cocktails. I am very much impressed with the way they are preparing. Nice venue, nice people
Just a really enjoyable experience.
The service Staff were lovely and attentive
The cocktails were very tasty but it was also the theatre of the service that was really fun and unique.
All the staff were very lovely, the food was beautiful and they served incredible drinks.
Loved the vibe, ambience and service. Cheese platter was fantastic. My cocktail DiD come out with fairy floss and a plane … just had to see it for myself. Super recommended
Wonderful creative cocktails with excellent service. We also had some appetisers which were super delicious. Can't wait to come back!
Limited menu, was not advised at time of booking.
Sat at bar was not told this was the seating when booking (seriously who on earth wants to sit at the bar at a cocktail place)
Cocktails were expensive and average, also didn’t have ingredients to make a specific basic cocktail.
If you want to go somewhere that might look great on Insta but really is average at best this is the place.
The decor and the staff all played into the ambience of a prohibition jazz club, our waiter was simply fantastic and the cocktails were well made and balanced. Thanks!
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.
