    Amazing cocktails that are just simply wow! Refreshingly friendly customer service where we were greeted and made to feel welcome. The staff were accommodating and very knowledgeable about both the food and drink. The bar has a great golden hue from the lit shelves underneath the different alcohol bottles. Went there before a stage show and then straight back afterwards.

    I booked This venue for my mums 60th birthday and we came just for some cocktails before a dinner elsewhere. A place we have come many a times to celebrate special occasions. I had called earlier in the day to add seats to our table as our group had increased. All which was approved. Our group arrived at different times coming from different places. My partner was refused entry by the door lady upon arrival because apparently our table was full. When it wasn’t. He said that the ladies attitude was ridiculously rude. I pulled a chair from the table next to us which was empty as there weren’t enough seats for everyone. Another two ladies arrived and were also spoken to like this. Apparently the booking person (myself) had caused the venue enough problems. They just said they were going to drop the present off and leave to which they stayed 10 minutes and left. They borrow another chair from the next table as there was still no one there. Another waiter came and took them as there was a booking in a few minutes. We left just before 6 and still no people at the table next to us. I didn’t appreciate the way we were spoken to especially with the amount of money we spent for my mum in less than a two hour seating. Won’t be coming back again

    We had a great time there. It was talked up to me but I didn’t think it lived up to the hype. Cocktails were quite overpriced for the size/value. The bubble cocktail is cool but to me it just tasted like the long life bottled orange juice from the supermarket. We had a cheese platter and it was yummy but for $40 I thought it was overpriced. Most of the chairs are high stools so if you don’t like those then you don’t really have much option. I could see some lower chairs but not many. The service was good and it was a nice ambience. Would probably prefer other bars over this one if I was to go again.

    Nick & Nora's MelbourneResponded on 1 August 2022Thank you for your review and feedback. I am sorry to hear we did not meet expectations this time and will certainly take the feedback on board. I would love the opportunity to welcome you back to Nick & Nora's to improve on this experience. Warm regards, Eimear Venue Manager

    Our experience was mixed. The venue is great. The bar is terrific. We visited on a Sunday which incurs a 10% surcharge?, which is odd. We ordered the $60 Chacuterie board for two which was quite basic. We were underwhelmed by our experience.

    We sat at the bar thinking we can see the bartenders work their craft. Instead we were met with hostility. The bartender constantly threw things into the sink, creating loud sudden noises. He knew we were taken aback but continued on doing it. We got dirty water splashed onto our face not once but twice! I was so appalled. I requested to be moved to another location but was advised they couldn’t accommodate until something becomes available although I could see empty seats. Very disappointing night out.

    Nick and Nora's is my "go to" cocktail bar on the Paris End of town for either a night out, after work drink and snack or a night cap. The vibez that the warm glow of the bar lighting really sets the mood for the whole place and the service is just spot on. Not too in your face, but at the same time when you need them, they appear. I'd say that the small room for improvement is for the bartenders to have some intimate knowledge of the 5 basic cocktails for each/most spirits. But definitely not a major put off.
