41 Little Bourke St, Melbourne

Juliet is an underground cocktail bar that showcases goods from local makers.

Descend the winding stairs into the dimly lit space, and select from a mix of classic and modern cocktails.

You’ll find espresso martinis, Americanos, and whiskey sours, as well as seven variations on the much-loved gin and tonic.

The kitchen is streets ahead of many other cocktail bars, with a selection of sharable nibbles, charcuterie, and melted raclette cheese served over baby Kipfler potatoes.
