3 Driver Lane, Melbourne

This cavernous bar is hiding underground, down the unassuming Driver Lane.

Appropriately named Beneath Driver Lane, this whisky and cocktail bar combines the old world with the new; arched ceiling, brick walls, and marble pillars.

Originally the space was the vault of the nearby General Post Office.

Their cocktails are intricately crafted, using housemade ingredients and some featuring a topping of liquid nitrogen.

If you are a whisky fan, there’s also a tasting vault that allows you to try some of their 160 whiskies.
