Highlights
    What to Expect
    We start by meeting guests at The Atrium for a quick get-to-know you. The tour begins with a short background about the founding of Melbourne, and a history of our early infatuation with booze.
    Walking through Melbourne's eastern laneways, we arrive at our first bar for a quick libation and a light snack. We depart for more stories of murders, secret men's clubs and racing icons, before arriving at our second bar, and the spiritual home of Melbourne's laneway culture.
    We then walk through Melbourne's old red light district and China Town, before finally arriving at our third and final bar for dinner on the rooftop overlooking the magnificent State Parliament. After dinner, guests are welcome to stay at our final bar at their leisure.
