Cocktail Bar
A place for everyone to gather, and leave behind the stresses of ‘real’ life at the door. Where you can hang out with your friends, your family, or by yourself.

Melt into our comfy setting and allow the tensions of your day to melt away.

When we were kids and we made castles in our bedrooms with cushions, remember how much fun it was?

How nothing in the world could touch us for as long as our castle walls protected us from the outside world.

It was cozy, comfortable, welcoming, and the possibilities were endless.

We were Warriors, and Kings and Queens!!!

This is the type of space we have created here, and want to share.

Everyone is on a journey, and every single day we give the world our best. So when a traveler is tired and needs some rest and recuperation, we are there.

There is nothing in this world that a warm welcoming space, some good wholesome food, garnished with anecdotes of

    The cocktails here are fab - with a menu of old favourites and a seasonal menu that seems to change quite often. The service is friendly and the food is delicious. You can also take your dog! Great little neighbourhood bar.

    A perfect and cosy spot to catch up with friends over a grazing board and some drinks. We sat out in the fully enclosed courtyard which was lovely and warm even on a cold winter afternoon. It was exciting to receive efficient and friendly table service too!

The wait staff were delightful The food was well presented and delicious The cocktail menu was thoroughly investigated and enjoyed Upstairs dining appeared more formal, while the rear area was great for larger groups I will be back 10/10

    BEST BAR EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER HAD!!! Holy cow ;) where do i even start?! We were able to bring our beautiful dog bubbles, and she had such an amazing time! She was able to meet lots of people, get lots of pats, and she was so comfortable that she fell asleep on the couch for most of the night! The staff were talented, warm, friendly, kind, professional, hard-working and passionate! I cannot sing their praises enough. Amber was our server, she went above and beyond to make our night special! She was so accommodating, positive and we had some great conversations! She did her job perfectly with a smile, and really made an effort to accommodate my intolerance to dairy. Amazing job Amber!! Outstanding drinks, i had the softails "mule-less" and a virgin mojito. They were perfectly made, in big glasses, both presented so beautifully, and they tasted divine! The flavours were delicious, and the drinks themselves were clearly made with love! The food!! Oh my gosh, the food was EXPLOSIVELY DELICIOUS!! Wow, it is rare to have perfectly sized portions, impressively presented in beautiful plating, taste so incredibly divine!! The food smelt incredible, and the texture of the calamari was soft and fresh. We could also see from the extra breading in the bowl that the food was made in small batches, which is always a marker of a fantastic kitchen!! The grazing board was so so yummy, i was snacking all night on the fresh ingredients and yummy bread! The chef changed the turkish garlic bread into a dairy-free substitute at my request, and he absolutely nailed it! Even without butter, the garlic bread was so delicious. He put the exact right amount of oil on to give it flavour, without drowning the bread. Very impressive! Also: the mango salad is a must-try! The blend of the sweet with the fresh crispy lettuce, thinly sliced chorizo, and succulent chicken?! I felt like the chef understood food, flavour and freshness. Incredible!! The Bar is immaculately clean.

    I was in Melbourne for New Years and booked a reservation for NYE based on reviews. I arrived via taxi and walked to the door to find the restaurant was closed. I was out $40 in taxi fare round trip and finding a new reservation for my family at 9:30 on NYE was impossible. Pretty simple turn off your reservation system if you aren’t open. Tipsy cow is welcome to send me $40 if they want to make it right. :)

    Love this place. Didn’t realize the food was brought in from down the street. Pizza was delicious but the pasta didn’t travel that well and it was quite dry and without sauce.
