Once upon a time there was a cocktail bar and nightclub in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD called ‘StoryVille’… Styled around childhood fables that we know and love, this fairy tale themed venue offers a truly unique and whimsical experience for those who dare to roam throughout its rooms.

During the week, the Mushroom Palace Cocktail bar, with glowing toadstools sprouting from the walls and chilled out atmosphere, makes an ideal drop in for after work drinks. Take the edge off with one of our signature cocktails, or simply relax with an ice cold beer or glass of Pinot Gris.

From the moment you step through the door into this noir fantasy you’ll discover a world of nostalgia and wonder, where anything is possible.

    Disappointing Experience Upon arrival, we were seated on the first floor. Unfortunately, the welcome was not very warm. The waitress mentioned she would return with water and take our drink orders, but she never came back. The temperature was uncomfortably hot, and the overwhelming smell of perfume made it worse. We were then taken upstairs, only to be hit by an overpowering bleach smell. It was unbearable, so we decided to leave. As we were leaving, a rude waiter approached us and asked if everything was okay. When we explained we were leaving due to the smell, he bluntly said, "Ok, seeya," and started laughing. He then joined another staff member, and it was clear they were talking and laughing about us. This was an awful experience. We won't be returning, nor would we recommend this place to others.

    A lovely and lively evening - friendly and helpful staff who enjoyed their work. Seemed short handed as it took awhile to get your drinks. Otherwise a fun concept.

    Fantastic cocktail bar. The drinks were delicious and the service was fabulous. Highly recommend. Felt transported to another world for a moment, and everything was so detailed and thought out.
