1/21 Liverpool St, Melbourne

New Gold Mountain gets its name from the Victorian gold rush of the early 1850’s.

by 1851, many Chinese settlers had fled to Melbourne in the hopes of striking it rich in the gold mines, with many referring to Victoria as ‘New Gold Mountain.’

NGM – the cocktail bar – took over a converted tailor’s shop and fitted itself out with a modern opium-den-like interior.

The Asian element is obvious, but the Australian touch can be found on the cocktail menu, with a focus on Australian spirits.
