    We had a wonderful night at Naught. Cocktails were delicious. The service was brilliant, friendly and informative. Celia could passionately talk about all the cocktails, ingredients and the distillery. It’s so great to have a bar like this out in the ‘burbs.

    I appreciate the attention to detail, when we ate all of our bread on our charcuterie board it was refreshed without us having to ask. Not that I needed any but I also appreciate the feminine hygiene products being available in the ladies. We have kids and love the grown up only spot in a family friendly suburb.

    We love Naught gin so were excited to visit. The bar is tastefully designed with a good range of seating options, and we enjoyed the laid-back vibe. The staff were friendly and attentive, and our bartender was knowledgeable and lovely and looked after us very well. The cocktail menu is extensive and the cocktails were delicious, as was the cheese and charcuterie board. We can't wait to come back!

The venue’s atmosphere and superb drinks generated a great night with friends and lasting memories. We will be back for more!!

    The inside is much nicer than the outside. Happy to pay $22 for a cocktail inside… outside is definitely not the same experience and feels like things are overpriced for what you get out there. I’ll still be coming back… I’ll just be sitting inside! 😉

    Outstanding addition to the Eltham area and bar/gin distillery scene more broadly. Small food menu, but top quality items on the cheese board we ordered. Hard-working, friendly and knowledgeable bar staff. Beautiful decor, and plenty of seating options. Deservedly popular, so book ahead.

    All the staff were very knowledgeable and happy to help. The venue was dark, classy and expensive looking which made it feel like it was in the city rather than Eltham. Music was quite loud & it was pretty dark so not the easiest to catch up! Cocktails and food were lovely but also city prices. Just charcuterie and cheese platters available - no meals as such

    I loved everything about Naught both girls were very sweet who looked after us. Knowledge of cocktails spot on and suggested cheese platter perfect. 30 days in and your doing well. I love Gin . I would have the staff in reception looking a bit more polished a glam shirt or a standard white shirt. But it Eltham and it had a relaxed vibe. Loved all the staff.

    Inside is a Speakeasy style bar but the speakeasy idea seems lost on the rowdy crowd. Outside on the back balcony is cosy and calm even on a rainy windy day. Overhead heaters will have you stripping off the layers. Staff were lovely, helpful and very attentive. Very quick service with almost no wait on a cocktail as they came out quite quickly. The only thing missing from the bar list is a tasting paddle for the Naught Gins.

    If you’re looking to get into the good books with your long suffering wife take her here. The unassuming facade hides a hidden gem perfect for that date night experience or catch up with close friends. The lighting and decor has the feel of a 1930’s speak easy and the gin cocktails are pure class. The background music selection needs attention but to quote the terminator “I’ll be back”

    Had booked an indoor table and was called the night before to say they overbooked and could they move our table back. Was told that we would be seated outside until our table inside was ready. When we arrived, I asked and was told we would be placed outside for the duration. This was disappointing as I had purposely booked inside and this wasn't what was agreed when they called the night before. Would have liked to experience inside. Besides that, they were attentive and polite. All the drinks were delicious.

    Beautiful venue. Staff were lovely and friendly although understandably busy as short staffed . Food options very limited although the charcuterie was very nice. Again I know the food selection will improve when these unusual circumstances die down. Can see this bring very popular all year round. The gin is lovely and all the cocktails were delicious. As a member we were promised a free drink but this didn’t happen, again as the staff on were run off their feet.
