21 Liverpool St, Melbourne
Serving cocktails since 2002, Double Happiness is a Chinese-inspired bar filled with communist propaganda featuring Chairman Mao.
It’s all tongue-in-cheek, and the rowdiness that Double Happiness promotes would not be endorsed by the Chinese government.
The drinks list is fun. The ‘Great Leap Forward’ is their signature cocktail staring house-made lychee vodka. Or enjoy bubble tea spiked with a shot of booze.
This hole-in-the-wall bar showcases everything good about Melbourne’s laneway bar scene.
