It can certainly be argued that Melbourne’s current appetite for serious cocktails started right here, in the plush velvety interior of this Brunswick Street institution. Now more than 15 years old, Polly still attracts the crowds with what must be one of the city’s most extensive drinks lists.

Settle into a cosy corner and begin making your way through the cocktails – just don’t leave without trying one of the many Absinthes on offer from the skilled staff who know how to serve it correctly. Just be prepared for a wait at the bar on a Saturday night, this place is still packed after 15 years.
