Cocktail Bar
*please note: during the Comedy Festival (29th March- 24th April) we will not be able to take bookings however please come past for a drink with or without a ticket- no need to book!*

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.

    We found this place amazing, great atmosphere, friendly staff and drinks. The only negatives would be sitting on stools, the atm being out of money and the mushroom light above use dripping water into the drinking glasses provided with our table water which we didn't/couldn't use.

    The themed decor was amazing, the cocktails were flamboyant, but didn't enjoy some of them. The music at the beginning of the night was awesome, but soon faded into elevator type music. Overall a great experience not to be missed! Best hole in the wall alley way bar for atmosphere, ambience and service.
