Hidden away in a Melbourne laneway is one of the city’s best kept secrets- Eau-de-Vie.
A speakeasy cocktail bar with a difference, Eau-de-Vie is old-world class meets modern day cool, basically everything Melbourne’s exclusive laneway culture epitomises.
Eau-de-Vie is made up of three main sections.
The main bar:
The heart and soul of Eau-de-Vie. 700+ back bar spirits and where the magic happens behind the bar.
Secretively hidden behind the ‘fake book-case’, the Whisky Room takes its name from our huge stash of great whiskies that are stored here. It’s also home to the personal bottle lockers where you can stash and store your favourite spirits.
The Eau-de-Vie Degustation table is a custom built bar height table where five course cocktail degustations are hosted, as well as a number of spirits and wine tastings throughout the year.
