Gin Palace

A pioneer of Melbourne’s laneway revolution, Gin Palace has been at the forefront of the city’s bar scene, offering some of the rarest and exotic collections of juniper driven spirits.

Descending through an unassuming doorway, one is all of a sudden transported into a roomy and sophisticated den of cushions, couches, heavy curtains and snug corners, designed for Martini-driven mischief.

Obviously, gin takes centre stage here, taking over a number of pages in the hefty drinks menu. That’s not to say drink options are in any way limited here - far from it. There are plenty of well-chosen wines, beer and whiskies options to please everyone.

Within Gin Palace, groups are welcomed to celebrate and get together within the "Harem" - a nook of cushions conducive to a good time. It's also slightly removed from the rest of the bar, lending it an air of exclusivity.

Gin Palace is located down a stairwell on Russell Place, just off Little Collins Street. Both Swanston and Bourke Street trams are within walking distance.
