Bar scene tour of Melbourne
Starting at Melbourne's world Heritage Site, the Exhibition Buildings, this tour includes stops at four iconic drinking Melbourne institutions. At a classic Aussie pub you can throw back a pot or a pint. Here’s where you’ll learn about the standard pour sizes of Victorian beers and how beer nearly led to all alcohol being banned during the gold rush. You'll then stop at a cocktail bar: Melbourne has some of the best mixologists around, but most of them are hidden in tiny, hidden cocktail bars that survive on word of mouth alone. Visit a speakeasy-style bar and learn about how and why Melbourne’s laneway scene developed. Lastly, you'll visit a wine bar where you can taste some of the best wines of the Yarra Valley. Learn how wine shaped Australia’s history and how to taste wine like a member of the social elite. Melbourne’s bar scene is ever-changing, so the fourth bar will be chosen by your guide on the day, depending on the group’s desires, the weather, and what is trendy in Melbourne at that particular moment in time.
