12 Meyers Pl, Melbourne

Meyers Place is one of the city’s best laneways, and home to several incredible venues, including Lily Blacks. This art-deco-style bar celebrates the golden era of cocktails: libations from before the prohibition area.

The bar is the centerpiece, backed by a towering pyramid of bottles. Surrounded by several seats to settle into and watch the world-class bartenders do their thing.
