What a place. We had a great evening with seats up next to the piano (just lucky). The pianoman made a party and it was just a fun evening. If you like 80'ties hit music, this is a must!!!! We didn't eat there.

This place was pumping The musician brought everyone together magnificently. I'm not generally a singer but I sang that night, I almost had no voice the next day. Can't wait to go back. (Drank way too many cocktails though)

An outstanding place for those who want a night of great entertainment and singalong. Staff are so nice and the pianist Ken world class. You have to put it on your places to visit. You WILL be so glad you did. The wine list provides a small choice but both whites we tried were superb. The cheese platter was delicious as were the almonds. Overall a great place you must visit.

Had a pleasant and relaxing time at Murmur. I came during happy hour, and enjoyed some cocktails. There was a live performance, she sang and played the piano, which set the tone for the bar. Highly recommend! Really liked the vibes here.

As a long-time patron of Mummur Bar, I can attest that this place only gets better with each visit. A girlfriend visiting from Sydney and I had one of our best nights here, singing along to old classics. This cozy spot is now our go-to hangout every time we catch up. Mummur Bar is the best piano bar in Melbourne and truly a hidden gem.
