16 Russell Place, Melbourne

Bar Ampère sits in an operational electrical sub-station – but don’t worry, you’re in good hands.

Take a seat at this impressive circular bar, and settle in for a night of electric drinks. Out the back is the ‘Swamp Room’ – a secret escape covered in swampy greenery with an old-time piano.

The sister venue to Gin Palace, there’s also a back passage that will take you straight next door – should you fancy a gin cocktail or two.
