Enjoy our extensive gin, whisky, wine & cocktail menu.
I was blown away by the refurbishment, sultry, sexy beautiful plush furnishings. Loved the ambience of the place. The tapas style menu was great and a good drinks menu to suit.
We absolutely loved the flavors and presentation of each tapas. The gin cocktails went perfectly with the meal which seemed to have some Mexican AND French influences. We had the chef’s recommendations (last option on the menu). OMG Just the best!!!
Fantastic venue, beautiful decor and furniture. Highly recommend this place.
Good food, good drinks, good vibe, great times
Our favourite place. So nice to have a grown-up, intimate bar in Traralgon. It feels like a little laneway bar in Melbourne without the travel! The cocktail list is amazing as is the food.
Good cocktails beautiful deco wonderful ambiance <3

Everything was fantastic from the food to the drink to the service.
