  1. Cocktail Bar

Loud and bubbly chatter gradually transforms into a low murmur of giggles and gossip underneath the popular hip-hop remixes. The music is loud and upbeat enough to maintain a sense of excitement despite the overwhelming drowsiness created by the warm glow of the dimmed, low-hanging lamps. Deep, shades of red and orange radiating from the softened lamps replicate a candlelit atmosphere, assisting in establishing an intimate environment.

The bar is tucked away in the far corner of the venue, however friendly and helpful service efficiently ascertains that drinks are plentiful. Thick, red curtains drape across a doorway that leads to a smaller room, which is entirely made up of well-loved couches that are occupied by groups of early 20s and late teens. Casual clothes are common, although dressier girls flutter in and out early in the night before moving on to populate a more dance-orientated venue.

For an unforgettable fine dining experience, don’t miss Three, Two, One in the dolce vita neighbourhood of Carlton. Chef and owner Andrew McConnell has gathered a devoted following thanks to the quality of his ingredients and the magic he works on the plate. It’s indulgent, intimate and unmissable.

For a great night out with friends, in-the-know revellers meet at what is usually called “the architects’ bar” (Meyers Place Bar is the formal name) in the city. There’s nothing flashy about it, but there doesn’t need to be when the cool inside-outside design and the interesting crowd create such a buzz.

Properly stocking a cocktail bar isn’t just about drinks, its also about bar supplies and equipment. In general, you will need to have a sufficient number of glasses to make service flow properly – this will depend on the size of the venue, your equipment, and your staff. You shouldn’t overbuy, but you need to have a backup percentage. For example, a bar with a 100 person capacity will need to have close to 300 glasses – roughly 100 high-balls, 70 wine glasses, 40 shot glasses, 40 rocks glasses, and 50 Martini glasses.
