What you'll do
A lot of the best bars in Melbourne are hidden on rooftops or down one of our many laneways. So how do you find them? We'll take you there. We don't go where the big tourist groups go, we take you to our favourite local bars and give you the insider information on how Melbourne's bar scene came to be. Depending on the day, the weather and your preferences, we may visit sun-soaked rooftop bars, hipster laneway bars, tiny gin distilleries or craft beer microbreweries. Aswell as taking you to these amazing bars we will tell you all about how Melbourne's bar scene came to be so unique and the secrets to finding the best venues. We'll provide plenty of stories about Melbourne's, with drink in hand of course, because who says history can't be fun! Our tour finishes in Melbourne CBD but if you are still thirsty for more or are starving for a local feed, we will be happy to point out some of our personal places of choice.
Kellie & Team
A born and raised Melbournian with a love of this city, who can tell a story or two from my time living local about days gone by. I first encountered the bar and pub scene as soon as legally possible, experiencing both sides of a bar and living for more than 30 years in Melbourne, to now managing the awesome Urban Adventures team. Our team will happily recommend a bar and a drink to wash down our take on Melbourne's history with a twist and when I’m not available, my equally passionate local guides Evan, Tristan or Tamara shall step in to help you discover why booze and history are the perfect mix. Cheers!
