What you'll do

Melbourne seems to hold a competition for the coolest bar. First criteria: Be difficult to find. In three hours, you'll discover four of the best hidden laneway bars the city has to offer. Since we operate at 3pm, the bar staff is a little less busy than normal and that means you'll get a chance to interact with local bartenders, ask for custom orders, and get time to plan the rest of your night as you explore the 100's of great bars this city has to offer.

Your hosts

Hi! I'm John, and I manage the team at Walks 101. Walks 101 is Melbourne's largest and best-reviewed tour company. The team and I spend our days walking Melbourne's laneways and sharing its history with groups of school kids, conference participants, and families. After work, we head to like to grab a few knock-off drinks at local bars not well known to the general public. That's where the idea for co-hosting this experience originated — with me looking for folks to enjoy a few drinks with. Fast forward two years later, our hidden bar tour is now an Experience unto itself. Myself, Kevin or Hugo will greet you, then send you with one of our team (Juliet, Lucy, Bridget, and Caitlyn to name a few). Whoever your host is, we'll put our own flavour into the Experience, bringing you to our favourite watering holes.

Where you'll be

We'll spend 3 hours exploring 4 unique and hard-to-find bars. I have a rough itinerary I follow, but feel free to throw me a challenge. Here are some of the special requests I've catered for: • Where can I get great whiskey? • Take me to a rooftop. • Can you show me a secret bar? • Where can I get great bar food?
